This elaborately planned concert by Redlands rock group THE FINGERS will take listeners back to another era. As set two of a three-set performance, the band will be playing the entire Abbey Road album by The Beatles complete with a string quartet and brass ensemble from the University of Redlands School Of Music and UCR. The show will also feature customized psychedelic high definition projections on the twenty-five-foot movie screen behind the band, designed specifically for this album by band member and award-winning filmmaker Chris Pepino, which will play in synch with the music. The event will take place on Friday, October 19 at the Fox Theater in Redlands (123 Cajon Street) from 8:00pm to 12:00am; doors open at 7:00pm.
The band will recreate the album from start to finish with full harmonies, orchestrations, visuals, and other surprises. Abbey Road was the highly-acclaimed final studio album recorded by The Beatles in 1969, and it features a wide range of music including “Come Together”, “Here Comes The Sun”, and “Something”. At the concert, there will be a smart photo booth, party atmosphere, and a 60s and 70s dress theme with a costume contest. The first and third sets by the band will be filled with original songs, dance favorites, and improvisational rock music. Bar service will also be available.
The band has been preparing for this concert for months, and with the scope of the video project and the acoustic musicians accompanying the foursome, it is sure to be a very memorable night. This is the second concert of this nature performed by The Fingers. In May of 2012 the band recreated the entire Pink Floyd “Dark Side Of The Moon” album at The Fox Theater for a large audience, to rave reviews.
