Beatles Unplugged March 14th

If you haven’t seen The White Album Ensemble, you should. They reproduce music that The Beatles recorded but did not perform (“Rubber Soul” through “Abbey Road” albums). The Kuumbwa Jazz Center, with its great acoustics and grand piano, provide a perfect setting for an intimate concert of Beatles songs “unplugged” – acoustic instruments with an accent on vocals and harmonies. Special guests include vocalists Tammi Brown and Alysha Antonino along with percussionist Steve Robertson. The White Album Ensemble’s “Beatles Unplugged” show comes to the Kuumbwa in downtown Santa Cruz Friday, March 14th at 8 pm.

Fab Fashion

Hard to imagine today, but this look was cutting edge in 1963. Proper entertainers were expected to wear matching suits/ties and “fit in”. Here come The Beatles. Granted, the Fab Four had their knock-off Pierre Cardin matching collarless suits too but for their “With the Beatles” cover photo session (called “Meet the Beatles” in the U.S.), John, George, Paul and Ringo rocked the black turtlenecks…and they changed popular culture forever. 50 years have passed since the recording of The Beatles’ second LP; you can hear how timeless the sound is every Thursday morning on KZSC’s “Here, There & Everywhere” program.

PS: Not only did Steve Jobs borrow the Apple name from his favorite band, he kept the look too.

Looking At A Glass Onion…

DJ Prudence displays her artwork, a painting entitled “Glass Onion”. It’s her re-imagining of the classic Lennon song from The White Album. This one-of-a-king piece will be offered today on The Beatles’ “Here, There & Everywhere” program, along with other Fab Four thank you gifts and of course your requests. Thursday mornings without George, Paul, Ringo and John would not be the same…call in during our Pledge Drive, 831-459-2811 or DONATE online to support community radio and this program.
