Beatles vs Stones – A Musical Shoot Out
The British Invasion brought us the two most popular rock groups of all time, the Beatles and the Rolling Stones, as well as the liveliest debate in rock history – which band is the greatest? These two legendary bands will engage in an on-stage, mash-up duel – a musical “shoot out of the hits” if you will – featuring internationally renowned tribute bands, Abbey Road and Jumping Jack Flash.
“Electrifying show!” said the O.C. Register.
“The most unique tribute show in decades,” said the L.A. Times.
“The crowd was on their feet screaming the entire time!” said the Idaho Statesman.
“If you missed The Beatles and The Rolling Stones live, here is your second chance,” said the San Clemente Times.
Abbey Road (A Tribute to the Beatles)
Five alternating power sets with the two bands coming together on stage for an amazing encore makes this show a once-in-a-lifetime event.
The cast of In My Life perform as a concert band. With their tight harmonies, flawless note for note renditions of Beatles hits, custom–tailored costumes, vintage instruments, Liverpudlian dialect and precise attention to every detail, Abbey Road – Tribute to the Beatles has honed their show to become one of the most musically and visually satisfying Beatle tribute acts in the world. Abbey Road recreates the magic, music, wit and charm of the Beatles, including the Fab Four’s cheeky personalities, familiar onstage banter and patter between songs.
Three costume changes cover the full range of the Beatle experience and beyond, with authentic early black Beatle suits, Sgt. Pepper’s regalia and Abbey Road attire. Hear the piccolo trumpet solo on Penny Lane and the full orchestration of A Day in the Life. Relive the emotional intensity of Paul’s moving Yesterday solo, as well as the high energy of stadium songs like Twist and Shout and other Beatle hits.
Jumpin Jack Flash
Imagine walking into your favorite 500 seat music venue and stumbling upon the Rolling Stones! They’re all there; Mick is prancing and gyrating, Keith is ripping licks, posing
with his trusty beat-up Telecaster. Charlie and Bill are laying down the back-beat, and depending on what time of night it is, either Brian Jones or Ron Wood round out the
line-up. But there’s a problem; this isn’t London 1964, but rather Los Angeles 2010. Put down the pint and take a closer look mate, it’s Jumping Jack Flash, the world’s greatest tribute to the Rolling Stones!
Jumping Jack Flash honors the privilege of re-creating a Rolling Stones live performance by delivering what audiences come to see — the theatrics and power of the “Greatest Rock-n-Roll Band In The World” in its’ prime, with you in the front row! Performing song selections from all periods of The Stones’ legendary career, you can depend on hearing the band perform the hits that you still sing along to in your car (however badly).
The greatest care has been given to the smallest details, to insure that song performance, wardrobe, instrumentation, etc., are spot-on re-creations of the real thing. If Jumping Jack Flash can’t rock you, nobody will!
Only a lucky few will ever have the resources to (gasp!) hire the legendary Rolling Stones for their private event, or even to buy stage-side tickets for that matter.
So for everybody else, Jumping Jack Flash puts you in front row center at the second most memorable concert of your life (and for a somewhat smaller fee)!
