Behind the Scenes Beach Boys Photos at National Christmas Tree Lighting 2017

The National Christmas Tree Lighting took place outside the White House on November 30th.  It was a star studded event with entertainers and performers from many different genres.  One of the spotlight performers was America’s band, the Beach Boys!  

The full performance and Christmas tree lighting will air tonight, December 4th on Hallmark Channel.  We were given access to some very special behind the scenes photos of the band as they connected with the many people taking part in the holiday festivities.

In the photo below you will see the entire Beach Boys band on the step and repeat featuring the sponsors of the night including the Hallmark Channel, The National Parks Foundation, and Find Your Park.
