Without music, concerts wouldn't exist and “funk” would just be the smell emanating from an old sock filled with corn. Lend an ear to this GrouponLive deal to "An Evening with 1964 and Orchestra," featuring Beatles tribute band 1964 The Tribute, at Hamilton Place Theatre in Hamilton. For $25, you get one ticket for seating in rows D–R of the first balcony on Friday, March 23, at 8 p.m. (a $50.25 value).
Formed in Akron, Ohio in the early 1980s, 1964 The Tribute rekindles mop-top mania and transports audiences back to the well-documented touring days of the Beatles. During a one-night stop at Hamilton Place Theatre, the faux Fab Four will squeeze into their John, Paul, George and Ringo alter egos to deliver a re-creation that has been meticulously honed through years of research, performing, and calling the fake Paul "Sir" even off stage. Period instruments, clothing, hairstyles, and on-stage banter help to further forge an authentic experience, and a pre-Sgt. Pepper song repertoire may produce sing-alongs to such timeless classics as "She Loves You," "I Saw Her Standing There," and "A Hard Day's Night." Additionally, a live orchestra will join the performance, backing the traditional foursome of instruments before serving as a distraction while the band escapes its ravenous fans through the back door.
