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 brought back so many fond childhood memories of listening and dancing to the Staples Singers. I have been fortunate to see the entire group, including Pops, in the past at other venues, but this was a treat beyond words. Thank you Goldstar for the wonderful seats and the elegant theater hosting this event. I had a great time. Thanks to Mavis for a nice evening of memorable and historical music. Mavis still has it going on and she is flaunting it well.
Winter Blues debuted in 1999 as an annual series showcasing top blues talent, and ardent fans have consistently called for Mavis Staples as a headliner. The wait is over! A 40-year-plus veteran of the music scene, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Staples has blazed a rhythm & blues trail while never relinquishing her gospel roots. Her voice has influenced artists from Bob Dylan to Prince and she has appeared with everyone from the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. to Janis Joplin, Pink Floyd and Santana. Also on the bill: blues powerhouse Arthur Adams.
