Connecticut Beatles celebration set for Beatles anniversary

Milford, CT. -- January 4, 2012 -- On Friday night, February 10th, in celebration of The Beatles arrival in the U.S., Connecticut-based Beatles fan club Liverpool Productions will present their annual "Twist & Shout Dinner Dance Party" at Aldarios Restaurant, 240 Naugatuck Avenue in Milford. The Beatles first landed on U.S. soil in February of 1964 and played their very first Ed Sullivan Show on February 9, 1964.

Headlining the evening's festivities is New York-based The MerseyBeat, one of the finest Beatles tribute bands on the circuit, propelling audiences to Liverpool in 1960s. The sound of their vintage guitars and amps, the matching suits and the legendary Beatle vocal harmonies are all there.

The MerseyBeat

Founded in 1985, The MerseyBeat honed the authenticity of its sound to the point where they they have enjoyed national engagements and high-profile appearances. Their historic U.K. tour culminated in an appearance at the legendary Cavern Club in Liverpool England to the stomping delight of the fans. All band members use authentic Hofner, Gretch, Rickenbacker, Ludwig, and Vox musical equipment.

During the course of only four days in February, 2004, The MerseyBeat made history when they were chosen by the New York Daily News to reenact the Beatles' arrival on the 40th anniversary. They have been featured in numerous newspapers & TV programs, and were the official band of the "BEATexpo, the New York/New England Beatle Convention" which took place in November, 2010.

Most recently, Connecticut's Mike "Ringo" Streeto joined the band as full-time drummer, following his stint with the Las Vegas "Legends" show which appeared at Foxwoods Casino. He had previously performed with such national touring acts as Beatlemania, Yesterday The Tribute, The Cast, Fab Fourever and also currently plays drums in the Creedence Clearwater Revival tribute show "Hey Tonight."

Opening for The MerseyBeat will be a French group called Les Scarabes: A Beatles Tribute. Les Scarabes translates to "the beetles" in French. Also entertaining between sets will be Boppers DJ Charles F. Rosenay, who is the host for the evening.

Admission includes Aldarios' all-you-can-eat buffet, open bar, the concert, door prizes and all the Fab fun festivities for $40 per person. For reservations for this event, call (203) 874-6096. For more information, call (203) 795-4737.
