Bands have been covering The Beatles for decades, but none like Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Bluegrass Band. Imagine the music of the Fab Four shaken up with infusions of bluegrass and jazz and topped off with a classical twist. The result: a satisfying musical cocktail that is coming to the Whatley Center for the Performing Arts at Northeast Texas Community College!
This special event performance is scheduled for Friday, Feb. 9th at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $25 for adults and $10 for children and NTCC students with a valid ID.
“I would never have imagined The Beatles would blend well with Bluegrass, but Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Bluegrass Band completely pulls it off. These gentlemen are fantastic musicians and you will be blown away by their unique performance,” Carolyn Franks, Director of the Whatley Center, said.
Sgt. Peppers Lonely Bluegrass Band’s repertoire features new and innovative takes on songs like …Eleanor Rigby, Back in the U.S.S.R, Come Together, Blackbird and many more.
