Experience the magic of the Beatles with ‘Rain’

Beatles fans won’t want to miss a smashing tribute to the ‘fab four’ via Rain coming up next month. ‘Experience the Beatles with Rain’ hits the Centrium stage Oct. 25.

A whole slew of tribute bands have surfaced since the demise of the Beatles, but Rain has snagged a spot of honour with fans over the years. Perhaps that stems from their respect for the material and fierce dedication to nailing those classic tunes so perfectly.

Like the Beatles, the onstage members of Rain are not only supreme musicians, but electrifying performers in their own right. In addition to members of the original Rain band, at certain performances the show will also feature the talents of Graham Alexander, Joe Bologna, Douglas Cox, Jim Irizarry, John Korba, David Leon, Jimmy Pou, Mac Ruffing, Chris Smallwood and Tom Teeley.

From early hits to later classics, theres something for any fan (I Want to Hold Your Hand, Hard Day’s Night, Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, Let It Be, Come Together, Hey Jude and plenty more).

Together longer than The Beatles themselves, Rain has mastered every song, gesture and nuance of the legendary foursome, delivering a totally live, note-for-note performance that’s as infectious as it is transporting. From the early hits to later classics that the Beatles never got the chance to play live, this tribute will take you back to a time when all you needed was love, and a little help from your friends.

The members of Rain also use the Beatles’ records like textbooks, constantly referring to them to ensure the songs performed live include every harmony, vocal tone, chord inversion, handclap, cowbell and string arrangement.

The guys offer a multi-media, multi-dimensional experience – a “fusion of historical footage and hilarious television commercials from the 1960s.” Rain also covers the legendary group from their first appearance on Ed Sullivan through the Abbey Road disc.

To replicate the Beatles’ studio sounds on stage (and with no pre-recorded tracks) would be impossible without prodigious musicianship.

The four onstage members are also veterans of the Broadway stage show Beatlemania and not only project the physical looks, speech and traits of the lads from Liverpool, but the camaraderie and charisma the Beatles possessed.
