Here’s the story of Beatles Night in Portland:
"A mind blowing tribute" - Rolling Stone
In 2002, Spencer Albee (Rustic Overtones, AS FAST AS, School Spirit Mafia) got together with his friends and played a night of Beatles music at The Big Easy in Portland, ME. The show sold out. 13 years and 4 larger venues later, this beloved night has grown in to an annual holiday family tradition. Now why would an original musician dip into what some people would call "cover band stuff"? The answer is simple. He and his friends LOVE the Beatles.
This year Spencer, with Jonathan Truman (The Band Apollo, Spencer Albee), Sean Morin (The Cambiata, Mai Mai, Sara Hallie Richardson), Jon Roods (Paranoid Social Club, Rustic Overtones), Sara Hallie Richardson and Dan Capaldi (Sea Level) and a host of others will play a greatest hits of Beatles songs ranging from the early days up through choice gems from the Beatles solo careers. On stage there will be real strings, real horns and anything else they will need to faithfully recreate some of the most beloved recordings of all time. The band is comprised of original musicians, so the songs are played with a sense of reverence and freshness, while still adapting them to the live setting.
Please help us as we collect new, unwrapped toys for Toys for Tots at this event. The objectives of Toys for Tots are to help less fortunate children throughout the United States experience the joy of Christmas; to play an active role in the development of one of our nation’s most valuable resources – our children; to unite all members of local communities in a common cause for three months each year during the annual toy collection and distribution campaign; and to contribute to better communities in the future
