Since 2002, Abbey Road LIVE! has been rocking the music of the Beatles at theaters, clubs and festivals across the country. This will be their fifth time to the island since 2009, with each performance bringing in folks of all ages to share in the magic.
Initially a tribute to the monumental Abbey Road album, the band has expanded its repertoire to include more than 100 Beatles tunes, from all eras of the Fab Four's career.
Not your typical Beatle look-alike tribute act (don't expect mop-top wigs and fake British accents), these guys are all about the MUSIC of the Beatles. Combining attention to detail with a creative exuberance, Abbey Road LIVE! delights its audiences with its energetic take on Beatles classics.
Tickets available at www.sjctheatre.org or 360 378 3210.
