On Friday night, August 17, Connecticut-based Beatles fan club Liverpool Productions will present their annual "Summer of Love Dinner Dance Party" at Aldarios Restaurant, 240 Naugatuck Avenue in Milford.
New York's "MerseyBeatMania" (formerly "The MerseyBeat") are the main event of the evening's festivities. One of the finest Beatles tribute bands on the circuit, this fab foursome propels audiences to Liverpool in the sixties with vintage guitars and amps, matching suits and the legendary Beatle vocal harmonies. All band members use authentic Hofner, Gretch, Rickenbacker, Ludwig, and Vox musical equipment. Founded in 1985, the band honed the authenticity of its sound to the point where 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. The band 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, were the official band of "BEATexpo: The New York/New England Beatle Convention," and, most recently "MerseyBeatMania" headlined "Danbury Fields Forever," Connecticut's first Beatles Music Festival.
New Haven's Mike "Ringo" Streeto is the band's drummer, having followed his stint with the Las Vegas "Legends" show which appeared at Foxwoods Casino. Streeto has previously performed with such national touring acts as "Beatlemania," "Yesterday The Tribute," "The Cast," "Fab Fourever," "Strawberry Fields Forever" and he also currently plays drums in the Creedence Clearwater Revival tribute show "Hey Tonight."
Entertaining between sets will be Boppers DJ Charles F. Rosenay!!!, who is the host for the evening.
