It can be hard to find if this is your first trip. The 5 freeway runs right past the venue and I find the easiest exit is Camino Capistrano which puts you on the street running parallel to the 5 and right past the venue. The CoachHouse is not on the street frontage, it's behind a tire place so trust your GPS and turn in when it tells you, drive down the slope beween buildings and find it. Safe area.

Parking - if the band is popular, parking fills up quickly so either get there early and eat before the music or be prepared to drive around a little for street parking and walk a short distance. I've never been unable to find a spot.

The British Invasion brought us the two most popular rock groups of all time, the Beatles and the Rolling Stones, as well as the liveliest debate in rock history: Which band is the greatest? These two legendary bands will engage in an on-stage, mashup duel — a musical “shoot out” if you will — at the Coach House courtesy of tribute bands Abbey Road and Jumping Jack Flash.

With their tight harmonies, flawless note-for-note renditions of Beatles hits, custom–tailored costumes, vintage instruments, Liverpudlian dialect and precise attention to every detail, Abbey Road has honed their show to become one of the most musically and visually satisfying Beatles tribute acts in the world. Abbey Road recreates the magic, music, wit and charm of the Beatles, including the Fab Four’s cheeky personalities and familiar onstage banter and patter between songs. Frank Mendonca from the Fab Four tribute band will play the role of “Paul” at the show.

Three costume changes cover the full range of the Beatles experience and beyond, with authentic early black Beatles 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 Beatles hits.

Imagine walking into your favorite 500-seat music venue and stumbling upon the Rolling Stones! They’re all there: Mick is prancing and gyrating and Keith is ripping licks, posing and prowling the stage with his trusty beat-up Telecaster. Charlie and Bill are laying down the backbeat, and Brian Jones returns from the great beyond to round out the original lineup. But there’s a problem; this isn’t London 1964, but rather Los Angeles circa 2013. Put down the pint and take a closer look mate, it’s Jumping Jack Flash, the world’s greatest tribute to the Rolling Stones!

“Rock and Roll is about rebellion,” said Young Hutchison, who plays Keith Richards in Jumping Jack Flash.“There is a sexuality and danger to the Stones, and that’s why I think the Rolling Stones are, well, the greatest rock ‘n’ roll band in the world,” he continued. “If the Beatles had not hit it big in the early ’60s, the Stones would still be a local cover band in England,” said Abbey Road manager Tom Maher. “Also, the Beatles were unquestionably the better songwriters,” continued Maher. "The Beatles wrote “Let It Be,” but The Stones countered with “Let It Bleed,’” laughed Hutchison.

So, the quintessential debate continues: Is it the four young lads from Liverpool or the bad boys of rock ‘n’ roll?
