When: Fri., Feb. 24 2017
One of the most talented group of singers and songwriters to ever walk the planet, the Beatles left behind an incredible musical legacy. To this day, tribute acts try to recapture the band’s glory. Slated to take place in downtown Kent starting at 5 p.m. today, the fourth annual Kent Beatlefest aims to honor the Fab Four as participating bands showcase “their unique take on Beatles songs” at 18 different venues. Full-on Beatles cover bands like Abby Road perform at Dominick’s, and local hero Colin Dussault’s “Beatles Project” offers a blues take on the British band's music at Venice Cafe. Rick Locoboni will present Behind the Music of the Beatles, a look into the band’s business model and the group’s songs themselves, at the Kent Cheesemonger. Admission is free. You can find a schedule online. (Niesel) kentbeatlefest.com.
