Hola La Gente Feliz!
I am hoping that this note finds you in good spirits. For us, we’re coming off the elation from last week’s Pat Metheny music gig and thanks to all of you that showed up and shared your wonderful enthusiasm with us.
Coming up for this week we have both a live concert on Thursday night and then we’ll share the same program on Friday night on our Live(ish) From SpragueLand broadcast. It’s all about the Beatles and here is a little bit of the backstory to this week’s offerings.
From the opening mega guitar riff on “Day Tripper” the Liverpool Four takes us on a musical journey quite unlike your typical tourist day trip. Now we’re traveling the air waves to songs that forged the new frontier of pop music. It’s this that we’re tapping into.
Peter and the group present their jazzified arrangements of The Beatles classic songs including “Day Tripper,” “In My Life,” “I’ve Just Seen a Face,” and many others. With Rebecca Jade on vocals it’ll be a special summer night of creativity and nostalgia coming together as one.
The band includes some of the best with:
Peter Sprague — guitar
Rebecca Jade — vocals
Tripp Sprague — sax, flute, and piano
Justin Grinnell — bass
Duncan Moore — drums
The Thursday night concert is already sold out so we’ll move on to the details of the livestream show on Friday night:
Thanks friends for tuning in and as I attempt to comb my hair let me leave you with this:
Reporter: “[The Americans] think your haircuts are un-American,”
John Lennon: “Well, that’s very observant of them, cause we aren’t American, actually,”
all best, Peter
