The Fine Arts Center of Kershaw County (FAC) will present Beatles tribute band, Abbey Road LIVE! Saturday, July 25 at 7:00 p.m. in the Wood Auditorium.

About Abbey Road LIVE!

Based in Athens, GA, Abbey Road LIVE! has been rocking the music of the Beatles at clubs, theatres, festivals, and private events since 2001. Initially a tribute to the monumental “Abbey Road” album, the band has expanded its scope to include more than 100 Beatles tunes from all eras of the Fab Four’s career. Abbey Road LIVE! is not your typical Beatles look-alike tribute act; don’t expect mop-top haircuts and vintage Rickenbacker guitars. Rather, this show is about bringing to life some of the more mature and complex Beatles all the while remaining true to the original recordings. Combining attention to detail with a creative exuberance, the band always delights audiences with its diverse repertoire of hits and more obscure favorites. Enjoy such songs as “Can’t Buy Me Love,” “Day Tripper,” “Hey Jude” and “Ticket to Ride.” Abbey Road LIVE! consists of Dave Domizi (bass, vocals;) Andrew Hanmer (drums, vocals;) Chris McKay (guitar, vocals) and Michael Wegner (guitar, keyboards, vocals.)

“This is going to be a real summer treat,” says Executive Director Kristin Cobb. “We are delighted to bring Camdenite Chris McKay back to town for this exciting performance.”
