NORWAY — The renowned pop-rock blues band Beyond Reason will perform at 7 p.m. on Saturday, April 20, in the Concert Hall of the First Universalist Church of Norway, 479 Main Street, Norway. Admission is $10, with tickets available at the door and at The Tribune, 430 Main Street, Norway. The first half of the evening will offer up what Beyond Reason calls a mellower ‘acoustic set.’ The band will rock out during the second half for a more intense experience. Put on your dancing shoes as there will be plenty of room for dancing.

Beyond Reason’s shows embrace a broad spectrum of music from the pop, rock, and blues genres—including original compositions from the band’s five studio albums and classics from the golden era of rock and roll. Strong harmonies, textured melodies, and a tight rhythm section fuel the dynamic live performances. The Southern Maine-based band was formed in 1992 by guitarist Greg Kidd and lead vocalist Steve Leighton. Along with Kidd and Leighton, the current lineup features Steve Mead
on bass and vocals, Tom Coolidge on keyboards and vocals, and Bruce Wescott on drums and vocals. Beyond Reason has had the privilege to open for such influential artists as Lowen & Navarro and Savoy Brown.

Over the past 30 years, Beyond Reason has performed at numerous benefit concerts for worthy causes. These include the Maine Breast Cancer Coalition, the Peabody House, and the Ryan White Foundation. Proceeds from this fundraiser will benefit the First Universalist Church and aid in the maintenance of its historic 200-year-old building.
