BritBeat – A Tribute to The Beatles
BritBeat performing "Magical Mystery Tour" at Mandalay Bay
When channeling The Beatles, BritBeat recreates the sound, accents, clothing, and mop-tops that helped define the world's most legendary rock band. So thorough are they in recreating the Fab Four, that in 2006, they performed with Pete Best himself. Best gave "my best to BritBeat" after thanking the group "for making our concert together such a great success."
Evidently, audiences share Best's satisfaction with the band, who travel the nation during busy tours that spotlight every era of The Beatles' existence. Concert photos show the group cycling through the gray Nehru jackets of the poppier early days, the psychedelic colors of the more experimental later years, and the fake bat wings of the ill-advised metal period. As BritBeat plays, colossal projections dazzle the crowd with album artwork, swirling rainbow patterns, and Beatles footage.
Hoyt Sherman Place
Hoyt Sherman Place was originally built as the manor of Hoyt Sherman, an influential local politician and brother to General William Tecumseh Sherman. Following his passing in 1904, the building came to house the Des Moines Women’s Club, which hosted such notable speakers as Amelia Earhart, Helen Keller, and Grant Wood. The success of the club necessitated the addition of a 1,400-seat theater and the removal of the obsolete 1,399-seat theater. To this day, the theater gleams with early-20th-century opulence, from the sunburst of gilded beams that arc across the ceiling to the rows of nostalgic red seats.
