Rubber Soul – Thurs., Jan. 19 • 7 p.m.
Rubber Soul is a celebration of the Beatles’ music, but its performances include much of the visual imagery of the Beatles. Using accurate reproductions of the gear used by the Fab Four - Gretsch, Hofner, and Rickenbacker guitars, Vox amplifiers, and an original 60’s Ludwig drum set - Rubber Soul recreates the Beatles’ sound and the excitement of a Beatles concert. Stage banter is done with British accents and costumes range from the black turtlenecks and jeans favored by the Fab Four in their early days at Liverpool’s Cavern Club to the velvet-collar suits as seen on that famous Ed Sullivan show in 1964, as well as military-influenced Shea Stadium jackets from the 1965 tour. Rubber Soul, named after a favorite Beatles album, was formed in 2001 and has steadily grown in popularity. A true Beatles tribute band, a Rubber Soul performance is designed to let the audience close its eyes and be transported back to the days of Beatlemania. Suitable for audiences of all ages.
