On August 9, 2017, Al Gomes and Connie Watrous of Big Noise conceived, produced and MC'd a commemoration ceremony on-stage with The Beach Boys which honored the 40th Anniversary of the band performing for the largest concert audience EVER assembled in the history of the State of Rhode Island - over 40,000 fans on September 2, 1977 at the Narragansett Park Race Track in Pawtucket, RI.

Al and Connie were also successful in getting the stretch of street where the concert stage stood forever renamed as 'Beach Boys Way.'
