Cavern Club Beatles Perform to Benefit Auburn Education Foundation


The Beatles are back and, as always, with a cause. The Cavern Club Beatles are performing on July 27th to support an education program that helps cover what school budgets aren’t always able to.

This particular cover band not only hails straight out of the actual Cavern Club in Liverpool where the original Fab Four got started, but is also endorsed by John Lennon’s sister Julia Baird herself.

“We sell out every week now at the Cavern Club,” says Jimmy Coburn who portrays John Lennon. This is “an honor, especially coming from Liverpool,” says Tony Coburn who portrays Paul McCartney.

So get ready for an event of a lifetime! Expect “all the hits, all the dances used, classics,” explains Paul Jones who portrays George Harrison, “and we’re going through all the eras as well: it’s early stuff, it’s Cavern stuff, it’s Sergeant Pepper, it’s a good mix.” Reintroducing the Beatles to a younger generation just “seems like a great thing to do,” remarks Steve Finnigan who portrays Ringo.

Proceeds for the concert will be used to raise funds for the Auburn Education Foundation. 60 percent of children in Auburn are living in poverty, and curricular and extracurricular activities are seeing a decrease, especially in terms of arts and non-STEM subjects.

The Foundation seeks to take this sad song and make it better by providing money for local schools’ budgets so that they won’t have to take away these programs all too necessary for development and growth.

This event is a great way to introduce the kids to one of the most legendary bands to ever exist, being that it is also nonalcoholic and completely family-friendly.

Gates open at 3pm and there will be food and music available on entry. It will be held at Emerson Park in Auburn—outdoors, so make sure to pack a blanket or a few chairs. Tickets are $20 in advance and are available at Wegmans. Children 12 and under can get in for free.
