The 42nd annual Dorothy Curran Wednesday Night Concert Series continues on July 23 at 7 p.m. with the fab sounds of New England’s Beatlejuice on City Hall Plaza.
The series is presented by Mayor Martin J. Walsh, the Mayor’s Office of Arts, Tourism, and Special Events, and the Boston Parks and Recreation Department in partnership with title sponsor Bank of America. Additional support is provided by media sponsor the Boston Herald and night sponsor Michael Francis Cahill Fund/City of Boston.
For over 17 years Beatlejuice has been the Number One choice for Beatles fans looking to get their fix of the Fab Four. Faithfully reproducing some of the greatest songs ever written, Beatlejuice covers every era of the Beatles catalog as well as the solo careers of the lads from Liverpool. Beatlejuice has the distinction of faithfully reproducing Beatles music note-for-note, from early Beatles to late Beatles, without costumes or stage gimmicks.
Beatlejuice began in 1994 when drummer John “Muzz” Muzzy and the late Brad Delp of Boston fame saw Bob Squires’ Beatles cover band Merseyside play in Newburyport and decided to start their own group. Beatlejuice quickly became a top draw at venues throughout New England.
The current incarnation began as a series of memorial shows in tribute to Delp at the Regent Theatre in Arlington. Beatlejuice now plays regularly with a rotating cast of singers including Jimmy Rogers of Velvet Elvis, Buddy Bernard of Aces and Eights, and Mike Girard of The Fools.
The Dorothy Curran Wednesday Night Concert Series continues on August 6 with City Hall Plaza favorites Stardust and the Decades of Dance Party featuring dance floor hits from the 1960s through today. The series closes August 20 with Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Charlie Thomas performing such Drifters classics as “Dance with Me,” “This Magic Moment,” “Some Kind of Wonderful,” “Under the Boardwalk,” and more. All shows begin at 7 p.m.
