BEATLEMANIA MAGIC

Join us for another FREE Friday night concert on the river with tribute to The Beatles!

“Beatlemania Magic” a Tribute to the Beatles recreates the “magic” of “Beatlemania”. A national touring Beatles Tribute band recreating the early Beatles concerts with identical costumes, equipment and spot on harmonies. Songs from I Want to Hold Your Hand to I’m Down played using Vox amps, Gretsch, Hofner & Rickenbacker guitars made famous
by the Beatles. The look and sound is uncanny. “Beatlemania Magic” also recreates the “Magical Mystery Tour” of Sgt Pepper, White Album, Let It Be and Abbey Road. If you missed them in 1964, you must see “Beatlemania Magic”a Tribute to the Beatles today and relive the “magic”.

“Beatlemania Magic” the Beatles Tribute Band, recreates the “magic” of “Beatlemania” from the 1964 Ed Sullivan and touring look, to the experimental Sgt. Pepper era and finally the look of Abbey Road right before the break up of the band who changed the way music was created.  We hope you can experience one, two or all three shows at a venue near you.
