Box office and restrooms are a full floor down stairs from the main floor into the theater. If you have trouble getting around, not the best venue for you.

The "lads" were fun and energetic. The music was a great diversion on a Friday night after a hectic week. The people at the Simi Valley Cultural Arts Center were very pleasant. Lots of free parking. Overall, quite a fun evening!

More Information


If you loved the Beatles, you’ll be sure to love Ticket to Ride, playing at the Simi Valley Cultural Arts Center. More than just another Beatles’ tribute band, Ticket to Ride members pride themselves on attention to detail, staying true to the sight and sound of the incomparable Beatles by using authentic instruments and costumes to add to their recreation of the Beatles experience.

As Beatles member “Sir” Paul McCartney, Jeff Toczynski awes audiences with his renditions of “Yesterday” on acoustic guitar and a piano performance of “Hey Jude.” His charm and enthusiasm mirror McCartney’s performances.

Gilbert Bonilla is the complete John Lennon. With excellent guitar, harmonica, vocal and keyboard skills, he takes audiences on a tour of classic Beatles hits. From “Twist and Shout” to “Revolution”, he’s simply brilliant.

David Kaufman takes on the “quiet” Beatle, George Harrison. But his Gretsch guitar screams out volumes of classic George Harrison guitar licks. From rocking “Roll Over, Beethovan” to the beautiful “Something”, Kaufman will amaze you.

Rounding out the group is Mike Sarafian as Ringo Starr capturing the personality and spirit of rock’s most famous drummer. You’ll thrill to his precise drumming and vocals on songs like “I Wanna Be Your Man” and “Yellow Submarine”.
