What’s your favorite Beatles song? When asked this question, people don’t just tell you the name of the song. They tell you a story associated with that song – about a first love, a first kiss or a touching story about a parent or the loss of a loved one. Simply put, The Beatles music is the soundtrack to our lives. Yesterday and Today: The Interactive Beatles Experience is the nation’s most innovative and unique show utilizing the works of The Beatles. This amazing group, anchored by brothers Billy, Ryan and Matthew McGuigan, perform as themselves and leave the song choices completely in the hands of the audience. This is done through request cards that audience members fill out prior to the show. On those cards, the audience member only needs to fill out three things: their name, their favorite Beatles song and the reason why they chose that song. The cards are collected and two minutes before the show begins, a set list is created based upon the songs chosen and the reasons that the audience members chose those songs make up the narrative of the evening.
“Smart enough not to tamper with the original class act, Billy and fellow musicians don’t mess around with English accents…and they don’t wear The Beatles’ wigs or cut their hair like The Beatles. However, they do deliver The Beatles’ music in a BIG way.” – Joanne Greco Rochman, Republican American
