TWIST AND SHOUT - Full of the raw energy, humour and an undeniable charisma that catapulted THE BEATLES from Liverpool's Cavern Club to world stages, Twist and Shout is a Vancouver-based Beatles tribute band that will transport you back to a time when Beatlemania dominated a generation. Eric, as Lennon, is at his raunchiest when belting out epic songs like Twist and Shout. Jody, as McCartney, rocks out with extraordinary bass playing on songs like Paperback Writer, while Rocky delivers a steady Ringo backbeat and Elliot skillfully hammers the three combined solos on The End. Twist and Shout will fill your evening with legendary Fab Four hits from the first U.S. invasion through to the Abbey Road era.

FIRE (HENDRIX TRIBUTE) - The pure musical genius of JIMI HENDRIX made him one of the most influential guitarists ever in modern music. Self-taught and left-handed, he played with a right-handed Fender Stratocaster turned upside down and restrung, and his use of the Strat's tremelo bar was one of the signature elements of his blues-influenced style of rock music. He perfected the deliberate use of distortion and feedback to complement his natural virtuoso ability, all the while exuding unequaled charisma, raw talent, and creativity to deliver some of the most revolutionary music of the 20th Century. Be sure to come out and take in the timeless music of Jimi Hendrix this special evening, as FIRE deliver their loving tribute to the raucous and anthemic Experience!
