Louise Harrison, the sister of the late George Harrison of the Beatles, lovingly chose four young men to represent the Beatles in tribute to the most famous band in popular music.
“The Liverpool Legends Beatles Tribute Band present the very best portrayal of the The Beatles that I have ever seen,” Harrison said.
And now, Southeast Texans will have the opportunity to see Louise Harrison and the Liverpool Legends as they headline the 12th annual Gulf Coast Gala at Lamar State College-Port Arthur. The event will be April 25 at the Carl Parker Multipurpose Center on the campus of LSC-PA, 1800 Lakeshore Drive in Port Arthur.
The formal event begins with a 6 p.m. reception. Dinner will be served at 7 p.m., followed by the entertainment.
Liverpool Legends perform songs spanning the entire career of The Beatles and on through the solo years. With precise attention to every musical detail, along with costume changes, vintage instruments and special effects, Liverpool Legends will make its audience feel like it is watching the real thing.
Members of Liverpool Legends have toured the world, playing in historic venues such as Carnegie Hall, The Cavern Club in Liverpool, recording at the famed Abbey Road Studios in London and performing with Denny Laine (co-founder of Wings with Paul McCartney), Pete Best (the original Beatles drummer) and the Boston Pops. They appeared on The Travel Channel’s “Beatlemania Britain” and headlined “International Beatles Week” in Liverpool where 100,000 Beatles fans jammed Victoria Street to hear them in concert.
Tickets are $125 a person. For tickets or information, call (409) 984-6262.
Lamar State’s first gala was developed in 2004 to benefit cultural and visual arts at the Museum of the Gulf Coast, and to provide support for the college’s “Discovery” youth program, Alumni Fund, athletic scholarships, musical and theatrical productions and a variety of special projects, such as Lamar State’s July 4 celebration and the Regional Citizen Bee.
