Music by the Lake to Welcome Beatles Tribute Band BritBeat, 7/19
The annual summer entertainment festival Music by the Lake will celebrate the 50th anniversary of The Beatles American invasion with a July 19 concert featuring premier Beatles tribute band BritBeat. This will be BritBeat's Music by the Lake debut. Tickets are available for purchase at musicbythelake.com or by calling 262-245-8501.
Named as one of Newsweek's best Beatles tribute bands in America, BritBeat will recreate the famous "Ed Sullivan Show" performance that launched 'Beatlemania' in 1964. The band's theatrical multi-media show features ascending eras of Beatles music history including albums "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" and "Abbey Road." Each era is represented with retro costumes, vintage instruments, stage mannerisms and vocal harmonies reminiscent of the original 'Fab Four.'
The 2014 Music by the Lake lineup also includes children's recording artist Laurie Berkner on July 27; the music of Elton John and Billy Joel in Jim Witter's "Piano Men" on Aug. 2; a sold-out concert featuring The Beach Boys on Aug. 9; and the Andrews Sisters-inspired singing troupe Ladies for Liberty with 16-piece big band The All-Star SUPERband on Aug. 17.
All concerts take place in the Ferro Pavilion on the George Williams College campus, located on the shores of Geneva Lake.
