Actor, producer, and new father, John Stamos will be back again this year to host the festivities on ‘A Capitol Fourth.

The big celebration of America’s birthday will welcome a number of musical acts.  The headlining act is none other than America’s band, The Beach Boys captained by original member Mike Love.

Stamos is thrilled to be back.  “You can’t get more patriotic than this!” said Stamos. “I’m excited to carry on this July 4th TV tradition for the American people and especially proud to honor our veterans. You don’t want to miss it!

A Fun Bonus!

John Stamos goes way back with The Beach Boys.  Did you know he has been a part time drummer since at least as far back as 1988?
