Addison County’s the Grift band will reproduce the Beatles—note for note—at Middlebury’s Town Hall Theater Oct. 7.
Long past the glory days of the 1960s, according to Doug Anderson, executive director of Middlebury’s Town Hall Theater, the Beatles continue to attract new and loyal fans, 41 years after the rock band disbanded. A long time Beatles fan, Anderson said he wanted to bring the Beatles’ magic to Addison County.
So, thanks to Anderson’s show business efforts, a group of local musicians has assembled to duplicate the Beatles amazing sound at Town Hall Theater , Friday, Oct, 7.
“The Grift band will perform perfect, note-for-note covers of every song on all three albums,” Anderson said. “Members of the popular band the Grift have joined with other area musicians, including Jer Coons, to master the Beatles sound. Hits from these albums, almost too numerous to mention, include ‘Eleanor Rigby’, ‘Got To Get Your Into My Life’, ‘Michele’, ‘Something’, and the seamless B side of Abbey Road.”
“This concert thrills me for two reasons,” Anderson said. “I’m a big Beatles fan, and Beatles fans everywhere will want to hear this concert. But it’s also fascinating to see these younger musicians get hooked on the music of an earlier generation. We always thought this music would live forever, and events like this suggest that it will.”
