Back in 2002, Abbey Road LIVE! was created as a tribute to the monumental Abbey Road album. The band has since expanded its scope to include more than 100 Beatles tunes, from all eras of the Fab Four's career. They specialize in complete, start-to-finish album performances of masterpieces such as Rubber Soul, Revolver, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Heart's Club Band, Magical Mystery Tour and, of course, Abbey Road.
Abbey Road LIVE! is not your typical Beatles look-alike tribute act; don't expect mop-top haircuts and vintage Rickenbacker guitars. Rather, this show is about bringing to life some of the more mature and complex Beatles material in a raw and spirited fashion, while remaining true to the original recordings. Combining attention to detail with a creative exuberance, the band always delights its audiences with its diverse repertoire of hits and more obscure favorites.

Benny Golson? Who? Just one of the most prolific composers of jazz. If you’ve heard the songs “Along Came Betty,” “Blues March,” “I Remember Clifford,” “Stablemates” or “Whisper Not,” you’ve heard the music of Benny Golson. If you remember the 2004 Tom Hanks movie The Terminal, you’ve SEEN Benny Golson. And Benny, whose 90th birthday is January 25th, 2019, is still composing and performing as a bandleader. Golson’s highly literate autobiography, Whisper Not, was published in 2016.
Carl Woideck’s quintet (Paul Krueger (trumpet), Torrey Newhart (piano), Sean Peterson (bass), and Ken Mastrogiovanni (drum set) will perform a wide-ranging set of Benny Golson classics from dating from 1955 to the 21st century. If you like swinging, emotional jazz, this concert is for you.

Vocalist Frank Sinatra was a master at choosing timeless songs for his albums and singles. Well before anyone used the term Great American Songbook, he created a repertoire that went a long way to creating that musical canon that stands today. This concert will feature instrumental versions of songs from Sinatra's recordings with Tommy Dorsey ("Without A Song") and Harry James ("All Or Nothing At All") to selections from Frank's own "concept albums" (Come Fly With Me, Songs For Swingin' Lovers, and more).
Carl Woideck and his group (Paul Krueger (trumpet), Torrey Newhart (piano), Sean Peterson (bass), and Ken Mastrogiovanni (drum set) will be sure to include some classics by Sinatra's favored composer, Jimmy Van Heusen.
All ages, students free!
