Meet the Beetles, Nov. 10 at Dixon Theatre


It doesn't matter if your favorite was John, Paul, George and Ringo because each member of The Beatles will be present in tribute form as Meet the Beetles invades the Historic Dixon Theatre in downtown Dixon on Nov. 10 at 7 p.m.

The Beatles Tribute Band has made a name for itself as one of the premier Beetles Tribute Bands in the Midwest, playing gigs throughout the Midwest, with highlight performances at Navy Pier, the Mall of America, U.S. Cellular Field, and much more.

The band is billed as  "paying tribute to the greatest band in history. These lads have come  from every point on the rock n'roll compass to create a "Beatles Concert Experience", complete with the look, accent, proper instruments, and onstage banter.”

The band does two acts, one in the traditional Ed Sullivan Show performance style and the other in the St. Pepper's costumes.

"This should be a really great night of music for the whole family. I expect to hear the entire crowd singing along throughout the night," Josh Albrecht, executive director of Dixon Main Street said.
