Calling all Beatles fans

'Here Comes the Sun' opens 16th season of Summer Concerts on the Hudson on Wednesday, July 10 at 7 p.m.

‘Here Comes the Sun’ is a musical celebration of a decade of Beatles music. Not an impersonation act, this six-person band of multi-instrumentalists and vocalists from varied backgrounds, including Broadway, Lincoln Center, and the Trans-Siberian Orchestra create a one-of-a-kind concert experience that celebrates ten years of music from the Fab Four.

The concert will take place on Wednesday, July 10 at 7 p.m. at Lincoln Harbor Park, located just north of the Chart House restaurant directly on the west bank of the Hudson River in Weehawken.

Why six performers when The Beatles were obviously a famous foursome? Because it takes the skills (and instruments) of all six members of ‘Here Comes the Sun’ to authentically recreate the deep textures and variations of these musically sophisticated soundscapes.

‘Here Comes the Sun’ takes the audience on a journey through the biggest Beatles hits. From She Loves You and Sgt. Pepper’s to Tax Man and Let It Be, this band does it all without the wigs and costumes in order to  focus on what’s most important—the music!

As the popularity of The Beatles reached epic proportions, they took musical risks that led to a catalog of music like no other band has ever generated.

‘Here Comes the Sun’ recreates this deeply-layered and multi-textured creative period using the combined efforts of six players switching between various instruments in a modern rock-and-roll experience

Public transportation, including NJ Transit bus 158 from the Port Authority and Light Rail will bring concertgoers to Lincoln Harbor. And for those who choose to drive, free parking is available at the Weehawken Recreation Park within walking distance of Lincoln Harbor Park.
