Hey Jude: The Tribute @ GPAC (photo by Stanley Johnson)

Review and photographs by Stanley Johnson

The advance advertising and the sign out in front of Tawasentha Park on the road into the Guilderland Performing Arts Center promised the Beatles tribute duo, Imagining Lennon and McCartney. But the stage set-up displayed three microphones and a whole lot of vintage Beatle gear. (Fab gear, sorry.)

Having seen more Beatles tributes than I care to remember, I was particularly intrigued to check out the merchandise table which offered t-shirts and CDs by Rick Bedrosian of Hair of the Dog, who I had seen a few weeks ago.

The duo concept had been expanded into Hey Jude…The Tribute, a full band, with Tom Raider as John, Brad Jarvis as Paul, Rick Bedrosian as George and Brad’s son Taylor Jarvis as Billy Preston (a young, blonde Billy,) who was filling in for keyboardist Rich Coogan, who, along with Don Ackerman as Ringo, were absent this evening.
