In May 2009 the amazing Wonderous Stories and friends performed a stunning multi-media version of The Who's Rock Opera "Tommy" at BB's and in November 2009 they did a massive recreation of George Harrison's "Concert for Bangladesh". This year the 5 original members of Wonderous Stories plus a cast of friends and video will perform McCartney's "Ram" and "Band on the Run".
In 1971, Beatles fans were desperate for Beatles music of any kind and Paul did not disappoint with "Ram". Although it was not an actual Beatles album, songs like "Dear Boy" "Back Seat of My Car" and "Ram On" clearly had very sweet Beatle-like melodies. "Uncle Albert" and "Smile Away" showed Paul's whimsical side. By the time "Band on the Run" was released Wings had become a household name. The rest as they say is history but on this night at BB's these two important Macca albums will be played with careful detail. Paying attention to the heavily layered harmonies is essential to the ear-pleasing melodies. There will be fun moments of audience participation and singing. Come on down and get ready to hear classic albums done right and maybe you'll get a chance to warm up your own vocal chords!!!
