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.

A chance meeting with Paul McCartney brought about changes in Jody Tennant’s life in a big way.

Tennant, an avid Beatles fan was inspired by the meeting to fulfil his dream of being a musician—to become Paul McCartney in a Beatles Band.

After years of hard work practicing and teaching himself to play left handed, Jody Tennant portrays Paul McCartney in Canada’s number one Beatles tribute band, The Fab Fourever.

Kevin Davey, shares his vocal talents in the role of John Lennon. He’s quite detail oriented and drives the band to replicate the Beatles sound as close to original as they can.

George Harrison, the “quiet Beatle” is portrayed by Jean-Luc Perron. The roles of John Lennon and George Harrison have been performed by Perron in various Beatles tributes.

Talented with various instruments, Paul Kaszonyi began with the band as their  sound engineer eventually becoming the drummer to play the role of Ringo Starr.

In order to truly replicate the sound off the Beatles, the Fab Fourever includes the talents of Blake Mackay on keyboards and sound effects.

Handling everything including costumes, props, travel and technical are Jenn and Terry Cormack the band’s road and stage managers.

On Saturday, Oct. 19 the Princeton Community Arts Council proudly presents The Fab Fourever—come get swept up in Beatlemania and be taken back in time at the Riverside Centre Theatre at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are on sale prior to the concert at the Sunflower Gallery, Thomasina’s and are available Saturday, at the door.
