In the 60s, four young men took the music world by storm. “Beatlemania” ensued, crossing music genres—resulting in the Beatles being classified as the best-selling band in history.
The magic of this musical history is carried forward and continued in the present through the efforts of those who love the music and pay tribute to the band.
On Saturday, Oct. 19, residents will have the opportunity to meet a group of people who are carring this magic forward.
