Red Album Dec 9th Show   /   Blue Album Dec 10th Show

The expanse of the Tributosaurus Beatles series requires a special venue, and it returns to the perfect place. The Copernicus Center Theater was the first movie palace in Chicago designed for talking pictures, and it has been restored to its’ original condition and outfitted for live performance. It is incredibly convenient - located just a block from the Kennedy on Lawrence, and 2 blocks from Metra and Blue Line stops at Jefferson Park Terminal. From the starry sky ceiling to the marble clad lobbies, everything about this theater impresses, and the acoustics are fantastic too.  

The seating is assigned, so you’ll want to get yours ordered as soon as you can to reserve the section you want - and bring your kids to experience this – they are both ALL AGES shows.  Partial proceeds will go to benefit the Betty Hemmert Music Scholarship Fund.

Tributosaurus Beatles Project: The Red Album (1962-1966) on Friday December 9th

The Red Album (1962-1966) brings together 28 A side singles from the early years, only Beatles originals, beginning with 1963’s “Love Me Do.”   

This Tributosaurus show will start with the boys at their most sparse, for innumerable iconic early hits like “She Loves You,” “All My Loving,” and “Eight Days A Week.”  Then you’ll see and hear The Beatles’ musical evolution with the use of strings on “Yesterday,” the folk influence of flute and maraca on “You’ve Got To Hide Your Love Away,” and the debut of a sitar on “Norwegian Wood.”   You’ll notice the maturation of their songwriting through John Lennon’s personal lyrics on “Help,” Paul McCartney’s exquisite “Michelle,” and their perfect collaboration with George Martin on “In My Life.” 

The Red Album show will re-connect you with the band’s raw beginnings, and remind you exactly how they grew towards the complexities of their late period.  You’ll know every melody, and will hear them lovingly re-created with the instrumental exactitude of the highest Tributosaurus standards.            

Tributosaurus Beatles Project: The Blue Album (1967-1970) on Saturday December 10th. 

The Blue Album (1967-1970) compiles 26 A side singles from the band’s late period, only Beatles originals, beginning with the brilliantly executed experimentation of “Strawberry Fields Forever.”   

This Tributosaurus show demands a massive orchestra, for epics like “Day In The Life,” “I Am The Walrus,” and “Hey Jude.”   You’ll lie in bed with John and Yoko for “All You Need Is Love,” sit in the garden with George for “Here Comes The Sun,” and rock with Paul on the roof of the studio for “Get Back.”  Tributosaurus will gently weep from the White Album, come together via Abbey Road, and eventually follow the long and winding road to Let It Be. 

The Blue Album show will bring the best of the expansive orchestral Beatles into your consciousness with new clarity.  You’ll finally see these songs performed in a way the band itself never provided; with full faithful instrumentation and on stage harmony.

New Year's Eve Dance Party = 3 Dates! 

New Year's Eve Shows are here! 

New Year's is a special time that requires a special show. This year not only is the catalog full of huge arrangements and complex harmonies, it's also one of the most popular bands ever - The Bee Gees. 

Sure, we all know them from the incredible disco success of the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack and the 9 albums beyond, but let's not forget about their careers as psychedlic and soft-rock artists from 1969 through 1976 - a period that produced 14 top selling albums, and 19 of their 30(!) Top-40 Hits. We always like to pick hits and deep cuts, but frankly it was hard to find cuts that did NOT chart somewhere, so we ask your indulgence as we fill the night with really popular material from the full range of their 36 year career. 

That means a huge band - strings, horns, multiple keyboard and guitars, and of course a gaggle of singers to complete the Bee Gees sound - and that means rich flowing psychedlic melodies and funky orchestrations to the ultra-slick sheen at the height of the disco era - and everything in-between. You'll know more of these songs than you even realize (and you probably realize a lot) - and you love more of them than you think, too. 

Don't miss it!
