The Upbeat Beatles at The Lights

This tribute band, appearing at The Lights on Friday 15 May, take the audience on a journey through the music of The Beatles from the early days of rock ‘n’ roll to the later years when they became the most creative and inventive band the world had ever seen.

The show includes film of the early days from 1957 and that famous show at Shea Stadium not just the music. This group have done their homework and live the music and showmanship of The Beatles, with the mannerisms and vocals being spot on.

The band members, Roger Channing as John, Simon Blight as Paul, Colin Yates as George and James Jordan as Ringo provide details of the defining moments of each year with plenty of interesting facts along the way.

The show is full of the familiar harmonies, well demonstrated with Nowhere Man and Don’t Let Me Down, together with moving renditions of Yesterday and Let It Be, a great version of Here Comes The Sun and a fine performance of Blackbird.

It features plenty of the “fun” songs too, including When I’m 64 and Ob-La-Di-Ob-La-Da through to the Abbey road years when the band had stopped touring because their creations were too complex to perform on stage.

Expect a great night, with fine musicians playing the songs you love. You’ll be singing and dancing all night long.
