Description

Nationally touring Beatles tribute band Abbey Road brings their three costume change show to the Grove Theatre in Upland to lend support to a Riverside dachshund rescue organization. Singer/songwriter and actor Austin Anderson of Nickelodeon’s Victorious will open the show with his original songs. Raffles and an auction will also take place during the event.

The benefit is hosted by the Sunny Oasis Rescue for Dachshunds and Friends, a non-profit, all-volunteer organization in Riverside dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and re-homing of abandoned, abused or injured dachshunds and other dogs. Sunny Oasis rescues, rehabilitates and finds permanent home placements for 75-100 dogs per year. They provide necessary medical treatment, vaccinations, spaying and neutering, and correction of behavioral problems. Dachshunds are a short-legged, long-bodied dog breed belonging to the hound family.

Abbey Road recreates the magic, music, wit and charm of the Beatles, including the Fab Four’s cheeky personalities, familiar onstage banter and patter between songs.The musicians in the band are between 22 – 33 years of age and are age appropriate for the original artists when the Beatles were playing.

Three costume changes cover the full range of the Beatle experience and beyond, with authentic early black Beatle suits, Sgt. Pepper’s regalia and Abbey Road attire. Hear the piccolo trumpet solo on “Penny Lane” and the full orchestration of “A Day in the Life.” Relive the emotional intensity of Paul’s moving “Yesterday” solo, as well as the high energy of stadium songs like “Twist and Shout” and other Beatle hits.

After recently finishing the family film Wiener Dog Nationals_, Anderson sealed a two movie deal with Camelot Entertainment. In addition to starring on V_ictorious, he is also a main cast member on the new show from Dick Clark Productions, The Real Teens of Hollywood. He has appeared on the Tonight Show and The Ellen Degeneres Show.

In addition to the Beatles concert show, Sunny Oasis will hold an auction and raffles will take place. There will be appearances by dogs featured in the recently completed film Wiener Dog Nationals, and a book signing by Amy Caetta who wrote Geenie and the Weenie Race.
