The energy of the room made it nearly impossible for anyone to keep from tapping their toes and singing every song word for word. The band proceeded to play every song on the "Abbey Road" album and kept the audience enraptured with timeless classics as well as lesser-known masterpieces, which were much appreciated by the genuine Beatlemaniacs.
It’s said that imitation is the greatest form of flattery, and the Beatles themselves probably would have been quite flattered had they been present to witness the extraordinarily transcending sounds produced by this talented quartet.
Abbey Road LIVE! stayed true to the essence of the Beatles’ music while incorporating their own style and interpretation. They showed the utmost respect for the music while playing these renditions. Rather than replicating the Beatles exactly, they managed to play the entire album with their own spin, while still sounding like something the Beatles would have played. The band’s passion and energy was almost tangible as they rocked out with incredible guitar and drum solos. Abbey Road LIVE! put on a great show, dazzling their audience with their exuberance and antics. They were a joy to watch and a dream to listen to.
Abbey Road LIVE! knew how to work the crowd; one band member even commented that this was probably one of the best shows they had had in Charleston.
Keeping an authentic Beatles vibe and staying true to the band’s music, they made the crowd go wild when band member Michael Wegner pulled out the sitar, an Indian stringed instrument employed in many Beatles’ songs, especially George Harrison’s. Their voices were eerily accurate in their renditions, bringing us as close to the real thing as we could get. The fact that Abbey Road LIVE! was able to bring together people of all ages, colors and sizes for the common purpose of experiencing and appreciating truly ingenious music, is a testament to the greatness and immortality of The Beatles.
