Fort Erie could soon expect a British Invasion featuring the Fab Four. Actually, make that the Post-Fab 10.
Singer-guitarist Jeff Scott is bringing “The Liverpool Sessions” to The Sanctuary – Centre for the Arts (209 Ridge Road North) in Fort Erie on October 1 for a show at 8 pm.
The show, which promises to bring “The Beatles from Studio To Stage,” features dozens of Beatles classic, such as “Sgt Pepper’s”, “Yesterday”, “Ob La Di Ob La Da”, “Hey Jude”, “Penny Lane”, “Yellow Submarine” and a large portion of the “Abbey Road” album.
What Scott’s ensemble concentrates on mostly (but not exclusively) is The Beatles studio work after they stopped touring in 1966 so all the big hits from 1967 to 1970 will be performed on stage.
Scott, a Humber College jazz school graduate, has worked in cover bands since he graduated. Shortly after graduation, the Newmarket native got the call to head down to Las Vegas to perform with the Kokomo Beach Band, a Beach Boys Tribute.
From there, he landed in the Las Vegas production “Legends in Concert” playing musicians such as Buddy Holly, Sha Na Na’s Bowser and the “Duke of Earl” himself, Gene Chandler.
By 2013, he turned his attention to The Beatles, creating shows commemorating the Beatles first release “Please Please Me” and “With The Beatles… Live!” Performed by a hybrid of Jeff’s original and tribute band, The Rave Ons, the shows were a huge hit.
Since then, he has focused on The Liverpool Sessions updating it as the ensemble went along.
The show even comes with a credo: “A Splendid Time is Guaranteed For All!”For tickets, check HERE
