Get ready to dance and party all evening while experiencing the joy and excitement of live music from the early years of the Beatles! This fun evening of music and dancing features The GoodFellas, a popular and talented Beatles tribute band from the DC area performing at Bethesda Blues & Jazz for the first time. The band has built up a sizable repertoire of Beatles' tunes focused on hit songs from the early years and other gems, B-sides and rarities. During their highly entertaining performances, The GoodFellas remain true to the intent of the original songs while delivering lots of energy, unexpected twists and a dash of panache to the music of the greatest band ever!
The band members are drummer Jon Sullivan, bassist Frank Murray, and guitarists Mark Loveland and Ray Futran who all share a deep, lifelong love of the Beatles. Since they came together in 2011, the band has performed numerous shows in the area and around the country, most notably "Abbey Road on the River" Beatles festivals held in both National Harbor, MD and Louisville, KY, as well as a Hurricane Sandy benefit concert in New York in 2012. However, The GoodFellas' crowning achievement so far was being invited twice to perform at the annual "International BeatleWeek" festival in Liverpool, England, the mecca for any band recreating the magic of the Beatles!
