A unique reconstruction of the classic Beatles’ White Album featuring 3 voices and 3 guitars, with great stories Live at Nighttown!
Featuring: Mike Kearns, Jim Wilson, and Bill Hoffman.
In February, 1968, The Beatles travelled to Rishikesh, India, to study transcendental meditation. On May 30, 1968, work began at Abbey Road Studios on what many consider their most creative and controversial album or, in this case, double album. On November 22, 1968, the new work entitled, The Beatles, was released. This diverse collection of Beatles music became known as The White Album because of its austere, white album cover. It became The Beatles’ largest selling LP.
On Wednesday, November 27, 2019, Mike Kearns, Jim Wilson and Bill Hoffman return to Nighttown for their third (annual?) Thanksgiving Eve performance of The Beatles’ White Album.
Mike, Jim & Bill Do The White Album is a reconstruction of The Beatles’ classic album using just three guitars and three voices. Not content with simply recreating the original recordings, this trio, shunning the wigs, gives the material a quarter turn with their own arrangements, spot-on harmonies and pithy and informative commentary.
Two sold-out, Nighttown audiences are proof that this down-the-slide-headfirst journey is worth taking. This evening at Nighttown is a great way to kick of the Thanksgiving holiday. Side One begins at 7 p.m. Tickets are $15 and can be purchased at Nighttowncleveland.com.
Mike, Jim & Bill Do The White Album debuted on May 30, 2015, at The Wingenstock Concert Series at the Lantern Theatre in Valley View, Ohio, 47 years to the day of the first Abbey Road sessions. Since then, they have performed The White Album at Brother’s Lounge, back at the Lantern Theatre on Paul’s birthday, at the Lake View Cemetery Summer Concert Series and at Nighttown. They are thrilled to return for this special occasion.
“Anyone who lived through the 60’s will live through Mike, Jim & Bill Do The White Album.”
