The Liverpool Shuffle, a popular Long Island Beatles tribute band, will perform on Sunday, April 9, from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. in the Vanderbilt Reichert Planetarium.
Tickets: adult $20 (on-line, at Vanderbilt website), or $25 at the door. Children 15 and under pay $15 (on-line or at the door).
The band, which has performed six previous concerts at the Vanderbilt, will be accompanied by a montage on the planetarium dome of 1960s photos and news clips, psychedelic imagery, and other pop-cultural moments.
Joe Ref (Refano), who formed the group in 2003, describes its act as “authentic, live Beatles music performed by professional Beatlemaniacs.”
The four musician-singers are veterans of the New York music scene with a combined 125 years of experience.
“The Beatles created the greatest popular music in history,” Refano said, “and we attempt to play it like they did.”
