Bowling Green, Kentucky, March 2, 2017 - Orchestra Kentucky will present the ground breaking Beatles album, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, featuring The Rewinders on Saturday, March 11, 2017 at 7:30 p.m. at the Southern Kentucky Performing Arts Center (SKyPAC). www.OrchestraKentucky.com
 
The Sgt. Pepper album was an opportunity for the Beatles to create new sounds not possible in a live concert setting. Their limited gear and recording technology wouldn't allow it to happen on the stage, but they were able to produce it in the studio.
 
Innovative textures and the use of  an orchestra led by the fictional Sgt. Pepper Band became wildly successful with millions of copies sold.  Today, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band is seen by many as the most influential albums of all time.
 
The Rewinders and Orchestra Kentucky will re-create the historic album in its entirety to celebrate its 50th year anniversary in Bowling Green, Kentucky. They will also perform some of the Beatles’ greatest hits such as Eleanor Rigby, Let It Be, While My Guitar Gently Weeps, and more.
 
Dave A. Horovitz, The Rewinders bassist, remembers the release of the album in 1967 and expresses why he enjoys it so much. “Paul McCartney created complex, unique bass parts (never more so than for this record) that are like mini bass concertos that accompany the songs,”
 
Jeff Reed, Orchestra Kentucky Music Director, first introduced a Beatles tribute concert featuring The Rewinders in 2001. The band members were hand-picked by Reed. “I asked around until I found out who was the best drummer, bass player, and so forth, in Bowling Green, Kentucky,” said Reed. That was the beginning of a phenomenon leading to sold out shows and performances around the country.
 
Today, their repertoire includes 20 shows featuring the music of the ‘50s, ‘60s, ‘70s, and ‘80s and are carefully crafted to take audiences on a nostalgic trip back to the music of their youth.
 
Tickets start at $17 and may be purchased online at
www.OrchestraKentucky.com, by phone at 270-846-2426, or in person at the orchestra office at 1046 Elm Street in Bowling Green.
 
The Retro Series is sponsored by Jim & Darlene Johnson and Jim Johnson Nissan/Hyundai. The concert is sponsored by Dr. & Mrs. David Livingston and co-sponsored by Newton Financial Group.
