Abbey Road: All-Star Salute to The BEATLES is a labor of love for what are essentially six of the hardest working musicians in Chicago. Add to that their significant list of Grammy® winning and recording artist guests – as well as their added string, brass, and woodwind players to represent the Beatles’ orchestral component – and you have passionate musicians that want to give back to audiences everywhere what The Beatles gave to them. To coin a phrase: “The love you take is equal to the love you make.” Abbey Road is literally ‘The Room Where It Happened’ under the tutelage of their inspired mentor Sir George Martin, who was initially as unlikely the producer of a rock group as The Beatles were a recording act. But each saw something in each other that sparked undeniable creative magic. Not only did the sacred ground of Abbey Road studios produce the most famous results in all of pop music history, the lads from Liverpool often became inspired to create song ideas right there, as they and their mentor collectively turned the recording studio into a well-tuned instrument in its own right.

Abbey Road is dedicated to the faithful re-creation of The Beatles catalog with stunning note-for-note accuracy. “This Rock Band with its mini-Orchestra is incredibly authentic and will put goosebumps on your goosebumps! They are astonishing, stunning, and the real deal.”– John Vernon, Illinois Entertainer. ABBEY ROAD – The Room Where It Happened. The end result is astonishing, and most definitely, “A Splendid Time Is Guaranteed for All!”
