"One of the world's premier Beatles cover bands” - US News and World Report

On Friday, July 5, the Community Center for the Performing Arts and KRVM’s Beatles Hour invites you to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Abbey Road with Abbey Road LIVE! and Eugene’s own Maya Love.

Two years ago, the band Abbey Road LIVE! presented the Sgt. Pepper 50th Anniversary Show at the Oregon Country Fair and here at the WOW Hall.  This summer they are back to help us celebrate the 50th Anniversary of The Beatles crowning achievement, Abbey Road.

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.

Abbey Road LIVE! is made up of four all-star musicians from the infamous Athens GA music scene that gave the world R.E.M., Widespread Panic and B-52s.  Collectively the band members have recorded and toured regularly with Cosmic Charlie, Charlie Mars, and Fuzzy Sprouts.  Individual band members have also collaborated with acts such as Indigo Girls, Juliana Hatfield, Mike Houser (Widespread Panic), Danielle Howle and Lemonheads.

At a typical Abbey Road LIVE! show, audiences young and old can be found gleefully singing along with every word, many in utter disbelief at getting to hear this monumental music performed live; something that even the Beatles themselves never did, since they stopped touring in 1966.

Maya Love started out paying tribute to the music of the late great George Harrison (after he passed) and has expanded to pay tribute to John Lennon, The Beatles, and Bob Dylan.  The band consists of Rob Tobias (keyboard, vocals, harmonica), Jeremy Wegner (acoustic guitar, vocals), Larry Lynch (electric guitar, vocals), Tim Miller (bass, vocals) and Sean Brennan (drums).  The group is noted for it's unique arrangements of classic tunes and also for raising money for great causes like Food For Lane County, St. Vincent DePaul and KEPW.org, 97.3 FM (Low Powered Public Community Radio). 

Tickets are $15 in advance, $18 day of show.  Doors open at 7:00 pm and showtime is 8:00.  Partial seating will be available on a first come, first served basis.
