Cat’s Cradle will “come together” on Sept. 28 with Beatles tribute band Abbey Road LIVE! for a one-night-only concert celebrating the 50th anniversary of the band's famous album, "Abbey Road."
With songs like “Come Together” and “Here Comes the Sun,” the album forged its way into music history and into the hearts of many Beatles fans.
“Growing up, I always listened to the Beatles, and I have really specific memories of singing 'Here Comes the Sun' with my dad,” UNC senior Brooke Smaltz said. “Besides the fact that I remember it growing up and it’s sentimental and nostalgic, I recently got to see Abbey Road Studios and walk across the sidewalk and it was really magical. It flooded back all those memories."
Abbey Road LIVE! is not a traditional cover band. The four musicians pride themselves on their ability to bring something more complex to Beatles music, band member Michael Wegner said.
"With Beatles tribute bands, a lot of them will put on suits and wigs and fake British accents and try to impersonate the Beatles," Wegner said. "We don't do that. We really just focus on the music."
