From the electrifying performances on The Ed Sullivan Show to the psychedelic pop experimentations of Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band -- all of the excitement and unforgettable music of a live Beatles show is brought to life in Rain: A Tribute to the Beatles. With authentic costumes, multimedia effects and note-perfect live renditions of classic Beatles songs such as "Can't Buy Me Love," "I Want to Hold Your Hand," "Hey Jude" and "Let It Be," Rain is the biggest sensation since John, Paul, George and Ringo themselves first set foot on American soil. These spectacular musicians have won international acclaim for their uncanny reproduction of the Fab Four. Founded in Southern California in the mid-1970s, Rain has toured across the globe with a repertoire of more than 200 Beatles songs, including the most complex and challenging tunes that the Beatles themselves recorded in the studio but never performed for a live audience.

This is a rare treat! Each of the members of this 20+ member orchestra is a accomplished musician in their own right, with resumes going back 40 years are more. Some took arrangements that Coltrane wrote for a quartet and expanded it for a big band.
THe Venue on the campus of Cal State LA probably holds only a couple thousand seats, so the acoustics are really good. Parking is only $3.00
There are few jazz musicians who have been revolutionary and as widely imitated as saxophonist, John Coltrane. Conductor Charles Owens and the Luckman Jazz Orchestra honor the legacy of John Coltrane in this tribute concert. His passion for experimentation helped his musical evolution take on a distinctive style. He became known for using the three-on-one chord approach, a method of playing multiple notes at one time. Coltrane’s influence extended far outside the realm of jazz. He hoped that his music could effect positive change in the world. More than thirty-seven years after his departure, Coltrane’s music can still be heard in movies, on television and radio.
