[Classic_Rock_Forever] in case there are any Beatles fans in this group...


There's nothing more exciting than the Beach Boys reunion/tour/album, but in case there are any Beatles fans in this group...
Join thousands of fans who will "Come Together" for a day-long festival of Beatles music on Saturday, July 28, at Ives Concert Park, 43 Lake Avenue Ext. in Danbury, Connecticut.

This musical extravaganza is titled "Danbury Fields Forever," a twist on "Strawberry Fields Forever." The 10-hour festival will feature 10 bands, each representing different eras or presentations of Beatles music.

Featured acts will include several New England and New York tribute bands. The Beatles Forever Band is a hugely popular international band that hails from the Hartford area and headlined the 2009 BEATexpo, while Fools On The Hill is a group of seasoned musicians based in Milford. New York's MerseyBeatMania is a popular clone band with wigs, outfits, Beatle boots and the exact instrumentation. They headlined the 2010 BeatExpo." On the opposite side of the spectrum is Genetic Control, a young psychedelic group that covers Beatle songs in the style of Led Zeppelin. From upstate NY hails Pat Horgan & Thunder Road with their rockin' "Garage Band Beatles" show. Massachusetts will be well represented by The Oh-Nos, showcasing a set of rarer and more obscure Beatles and solo tracks.

Paul McCartney will be honored by One Sweet Dream, fronted by soundalike/lookalike Mike Miller. There will be a classical sitar show opening the event by Roger Lipson, and a very special tribute to John Lennon by world-famous impersonator Carlo Cantamessa (from The Cast of Beatlemania) entitled "In My Life."

The July 28 "Danbury Fields Forever" music festival celebrating the Beatles' 50th anniversary is open to all ages, and is expected to attract music lovers spanning the generations.

Gates open at 10am and an entire-day "ticket to ride" admission starts at only $15. Tickets are now on sale from http://danburyfieldsforever.eventbrite.com, and there are limited VIP packages available. There will be food and beverages available for purchase.
