If there's one thing the residents of Boise love about their city, it's the fact that it's near and dear to their hearts. Once upon a time, Boise wasn't as large as it was but that didn't stop it from attracting the attention of some of the biggest names in entertainment.

That was the case exactly 58 years ago when one of the biggest bands of all time performed in Boise... in a high school auditorium. That's how different the times were back then! Imagine, you're in (then) small-town Boise which had a population of just 59,000 people in 1964... and you see one of the most revolutionary American bands of all time... in a high school auditorium. That revolutionary band? The Beach Boys.

It's still crazy to wrap my head around and obviously, The Beach Boys weren't the only band to find their way to the Treasure Valley to perform at their peak.

Let's dive into the other amazing musicians and artists who've made a stop in Boise to perform during their peak according to concert archives.
