“One of the world’s premier Beatles cover bands” – US News and World Report
“Unquestionably expert at what they do.” – Indyweek
“I loved the Abbey Road LIVE! Band! They were awesome! I would go see them anywhere I could. If it wasn’t so fun watching them enjoy playing, one could close their eyes and have a great idea of what an Abbey Road tour by the Beatles would have sounded like, just Awesome!”
Since 2002, Abbey Road LIVE! Has been rocking the music of the Beatles at clubs, theaters, festivals, and private events. Initially a tribute to the monumental “Abbey Road” album, the band has expanded its scope to include more than a 100 Beatles tunes, from all ears of the Fab Four’s career. The band specializes in complete, start-to-finish album performances of masterpieces such as “Abbey Road”, “Magical Mystery Tour”, “Rubber Soul”, “Revolver”, and “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Heart’s Club Band”.
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 house (Widespread Panic), Danielle Howle and Lemonheads.
While the four lads from Athens GA generally perform as a quartet, they have also been known to recruit the “Magical Mystery Horns” and the “Lonely Hearts Strings”, lending authentic accompaniment to the more elaborately orchestrated tunes. The latest addition to the Abbey Road LIVE! Musical arsenal is a real Indian sitar and tablas.
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.
We hope to see you when they perform at Sounds of Summer this Thursday, July 5th! The music will kick off at 6:30 pm until 8:30 pm, with food vendors and beer garden on site.
