Road Winds to Zumbrota for Beatles Tribute Band
Fans of the Fab Four have a chance to hear their music played and sung with careful, yet joyful authenticity when The Revolution 5 returns to the Zumbrota State Theatre on Sat., June 30, at 8 p.m. with “Some Are Dead and Some Are Living.”
Crossings is bringing the tribute band back after a highly successful concert in February.
The theme of the performance is to acknowledge each individual who made up The Beatles. The first act focuses on John Lennon and George Harrison, who are both deceased. The second act celebrates the two members still alive, Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr. The Revolution 5 will showcase the songs the band members brought to the music world, as Beatles and as solo artists.
Visuals are a part of The Revolution 5’s performances, and will be used in this concert to highlight important moments in the personal and artistic lives of Beatles members.
The show title, “Some Are Dead and Some Are Living,” comes from the song, “In My Life,” written by Lennon with contributions from McCartney. Released on the 1965 album Rubber Soul, it is ranked 23rd on Rolling Stone's "The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time" as well as fifth on their list of The Beatles 100 Greatest Songs.
Revolution 5 consists of five musicians who were inspired by the idea of a Beatles tribute and came together in early 2010 to make the idea reality. The band doesn’t impersonate The Beatles in appearance, but instead brings audiences a show that recaptures the energy and legendary sound of a live Beatles performance.
Guitarists Aaron Barthel and Louis Winskowski,
singer Grant F. Haake, drummer Charlie Phoenix and John Tetrault, who
plays guitar, bass, keyboard, percussion, mandolin, ukulele, and saxophone,
make up The Revolution 5.
