Sgt Pepper's/ Magical Mystery Tour 50th
1967 brought the Earth the #1 most popular album of all time, "Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club band", followed in November by " Magical Mystery Tour", sharing many of the same sessions, almost like a double album released months apart.
2017 marks 50 years of this extraordinary work of popular art, and few could have reproduced it "live" more times than the legendary White Album Ensemble, whove done it many times in their 14 year string of concerts, performing Beatle albums live, that the Beatles never preformed, as they ceased touring in 1966, with their Candlestick Park, SFO Concert. Featuring a string quartet and a horn section, featuring in turn members of San Francisco, Oakland, and Santa Cruz, Ca. symphonies, the WAE spares no time or detail in their lovingly respectful virtual version of the Beatles, doing it "live" ! The WAE features musicians who have performed, toure, an recorded with a whos who of acts from The Doobie Brothers, Snail, Moby Grape, Quicksilver Messenger Service, Coco Montoya and many more drawing from Rock, Soul, Blues, and classical backgrounds. MMT will open the show, followed by a raffle for guitars, benefitting WAE favorite recipient, Guitars, not Guns, a anti- violence, pro arts/youth Non Profit, followed by Sgt Peppers in entirety!
