Cavern Club Beatles To Perform in Auburn

Uncategorized

A Beatles tribute band, which formed in 2011 and has even shared a stage with Sir Paul McCartney, is set to perform in Auburn on July 27.

The concert proceeds will go toward the Auburn Education Foundation which provides grants to local teachers to fund projects that the school budget may not cover.

The resident band at the legendary Cavern Club Beatles based in Liverpool is a tribute band known for replicating the look and sounds of the Beatles. They’ve crafted such a reputation and have garnered the attention of McCartney, one of the last two living Beatles.

John Lennon’s sister Julia Baird, who is an author and well-known educator will also join the group in Auburn later this month.

The concert is being held to raise money for the Auburn Education Foundation, with grants focused on providing the arts and music to students in the Auburn school districts. Formed in 2003, the Education Foundation hopes to improve the quality of education in the Auburn community.

“We provide funding for innovative, unique programs that educators think of that cannot typically be funded by the school board budget,” Janie Hutchinson, foundation board member, said. “We have done over $260,000 in grants.”

The Cavern Club Beatles concert is set for July 27 at Emerson Park in Auburn. Gates open at 3 p.m. and the band takes the stage at 7 p.m. Tickets are $20 in advance and available for purchase at all area Wegmans. For more information on tickets and the concert, visit CCBeatles.com.
