Based on the Beatles’ early touring years, this film captivates fans at all levels with its never-before-seen footage and exploration of what a true phenomenon John, Paul, George and Ringo were.
The film centers in on how their extraordinary musical gifts shaped The Beatles, and how each of their unique personalities complimented the collective.
This Ron Howard film takes viewers on a journey from the band’s early days at The Cavern Club in Liverpool to its last concert at Candlestick Park in San Francisco in 1966.
Seating is limited and reservations are highly encouraged. Click here for tickets or call 704-996-7724.
Note: This film is available streaming on Hulu, but only the theatrical version includes 30 minutes of the Beatles’ performance at Shea Stadium.
LayLo LIVE at OTPH
Thursday, Nov. 10
Old Town Public House, 21314 Catawba Ave.
The folks at Old Town Public House have amped up their entertainment schedule in a major way this season, bringing live music five nights a week. That means we get more of the talented, hometown bands and performers we have come to know, follow and love.
One such group, LayLo, takes to the #OTPH stage Thursday. LayLo is a musical collaborative started by Clyde Vreeland in 2012. Working with a myriad of different musicians, the group takes many forms, allowing for the freedom to explore different musical genres and writing styles. On any given night LayLo can show up as a six-piece jam/rock band, an alternative country band, a soul/R & B band, or an acoustic singer/songwriter trio.
This eclectic variety is only part of what makes LayLo an OTPH house favorite. The other part of the equation is their original song set list. Vreeland, the group leader, is a talented song writer and taps into relatable human emotions and instances with his skilled guitar playing and empathetic vocals.
Regular members include: Clyde Vreeland, Bryan Frazier, and Joe Wilson.
There is no cover charge to get in and OTPH will offer beer and wine specials.
