Beatlemania at the Old Meeting House

June 14, 2014 @ 7:30 pm

The Beatles for Sale Tribute Band, an award-winning group based here in New England, will celebrate the Fab Four’s 50th anniversary. Not only did the Beatles Invasion occur a half-century ago, but their fourth studio album, Beatles for Sale, was released in 1964 as well.

For “a fun and energetic performance complete with original instrumentation and vocal harmonies that are as accurate as possible to the original recordings,” don’t miss this musical step back into rock history. “Everybody loves the music, it’s multigenerational—5‐year‐olds know the lyrics, 70‐year‐olds know the lyrics. It’s timeless,” says the group’s lead guitarist Steve Caisse.

While some tribute bands spend thousands of dollars re-creating the Fab Four’s look, “we’d rather focus on the music,” says Beatles for Sale’s Dan Kirouac, who plays keyboard and some guitar. “We try to capture the delivery” of the Beatles’ music, rather than their look, he explains. (After all, the Beatles for Sale Tribute Band includes five players rather than four.)

Weekly rehearsals tend toward military-style drills where the group works to capture the timing and feel of the boys from Liverpool. No wonder they can play about 150 of the 200 Beatles songs that fans might recognize. “We pay a lot of close attention just to the details of the music, offering songs that some Beatles tribute bands don’t attempt, like “She’s Leaving Home,” says Caisse.

Don’t wait for “Someday,” pick up your tickets today at the Francestown Village Store (admission: $18). Then put on your mini-skirt or vintage Nehru jacket, so we can all “Come Together” Saturday, 6/14, at the Old Meeting House.
