It was the 50th anniversary of the Beatles’ invasion of America. And it was also Valentine’s Day. So it only made sense to mash-up up the two celebrations into one great big concert of Beatles love songs. And admission was free, too…
The Egg’s big bash cut across a variety of musical genres, proving the vast versatility of the Lennon & McCartney songwriting team. The duo of Sara Milonovich & Scott Petito took the acoustic folk approach. Tom Raider, Brad Jarvis and Rick Bedrosian offered up the drummer-less rendition of their Beatles tribute band, Hey Jude…The Tribute. Pianist Cole Broderick presented solo jazz interpretations from the Fab Four’s songbag. And following the intermission, Rex Fowler (of Aztec Two-Step) and Tom Dean (of Devonsquare) led the world-class Nutopians through the John Lennon catalog.
