TOPSHAM — Celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Beatles’ 1964 performances—the first in America at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 1, when the Beatles For Sale perform at the Orion Performing Arts Center. This New England-based Beatles tribute band is committed to recreating the sounds of the Beatles live, in concert.
This band of musicians was drawn together by their love of Beatles music and the desire to keep the music alive, bringing it to a whole new generation of Beatles fans. But don’t expect to see Beatle wigs or Sgt. Pepper suits. Beatles For Sale feels that the most important thing about the show is the music. What you will see is a fun and energetic performance complete with original instrumentation and vocal harmonies that are as accurate as possible to the original Beatles recordings. There are no “sampling” or “midi tricks” — everything you hear is performed completely live. Beatles For Sale has been entertaining audiences throughout New England since 2007 with a repertoire that consists of over 150 songs from the Beatle catalog.
Beatles For Sale members are Joe Budroe, Steve Caisse, Mike Christian, Dennis Cummins and Dan Kirouac.
The Orion Performing Arts Center is inside Mt. Ararat Middle School.
