12 UCW JUNE 23-29, 2021 WWW.UPANDCOMINGWEEKLY.COM EVENT Summertime is the perfect season to have outdoor, family-friendly events. at's exactly what Gates Four is offering with their Summer Concert Series. On June 26, the British Invaders band will be performing at the Gates Four Golf & Country Club Pavilion. e band will present a Beatles Tribute to Beatlemania of the 1960s when English bands stormed the U.S. music charts and won over crowds of screaming fans. While dress- ing in period Nehru suits and playing vintage instruments, the British Invaders will entertain the audience with a mixture of British hits from the Beatles, Rolling Stones, e Who, e Kinks, Dave Clark Five, e Animals, e Yardbirds, Rod Stewart and Elton John. e Beatles formed in the 1960s and when they hit the scene in the United Kingdom, their fan base exploded. e Beatles were dominating the music scene in 1963, with women, men and young people of all ages going crazy over them. e term "Beatlemania" was coined by the press to describe the scene at Beatles concerts, and even during their travels. e Beatlemania was so strong, that during their concerts people couldn't even hear the music being performed, due to all of the loud screaming fans. So, in 1966 the Beatles decided it was best for them to remain a studio- only group. e Summer Concert Series will allow those in attendance to step back into what is remembered by many as one of the greatest musical eras. e British Invaders have been known for their strik- ing resemblance to the Beatles band which is one of the many reasons they were selected to play this year's Gates Four Summer concert series. "Getting people out after 2020 and bringing the music they want to listen to, and bring something appealing to all ages, was the goal in putting to- gether this line-up," said Greg Adair, coordinator for Gates Four Summer Concert Series.
