Imagine: Remembering the Fab Four! That’s what this Beatles tribute band is all about.  Sponsored by Blue Mountain Entertainment (BME), the group will perform on Monday, October 7, at 7 p.m. in the Monticello High School auditorium.

From their convincing Liverpudlian accents and Beatles wit to their pointed boots and totally fab gear, the audience will experience pure magic! It’s like seeing the Beatles in concert for the first time, only better.  

The show starts with a Beatlemania set followed by a Sgt. Pepper and later era, all performed with authentic instruments and costumes. 

The four lads joined in 1993 and have performed more than 800 shows across the United States and abroad.  The group has shared the stage with such notables as the Beach Boys, Jay Leno, Chicago, Glen Campbell, Badfinger, America, the Mandrells, the Shirelles, the Temptations, and the Buckinghams.  

Among their many highlights are performances at the Nokia Sugarbowl in New Orleans for a national TV audience, being the first act to ever perform at the 20,000 seat USANA amphitheater in Salt Lake City, and their 21 shows at the Shanghai Music Festival in May 2005.

Blue Mountain Entertainment welcomes everyone to see Imagine: Remembering the Fab Four – where a splendid time is guaranteed for all.

Season membership prices are: Families $60, Adults $24, and Students $12.  Memberships will provide not only admittance to all of BME’s programs, but also to those of Kigalia Fine Arts in Blanding.

Tickets will also be sold at the door for the Imagine: Fab Four Beatles show: Family $30, Adult $12, Student $6.

Tom Coburn (as John Lennon) was born in Manhattan Beach, CA. Tom was inspired at an early age when he saw the Beatles for the first time back in February 1964.

“I found my purpose in life — to sing, play guitar, and make young birds scream,” said Coburn. “It gave me ‘vision.’”

Since that time, Coburn learned to play guitar, bass, harmonica, piano, and sing. He is truly fulfilling his “vision” as he tours with Imagine.

Richard Fazzi (as Paul McCartney) was born and raised in San Jose, CA. He was inspired by four guys he watched perform on television that fateful Sunday evening in February of 1964.  

Fazzi has years of recording and touring experience playing many different styles and has been a member of several Beatles tribute bands. In addition to playing guitar and bass, he also plays keyboard.

Brad Armstrong (as George Harrison) has had a love for the music of the Beatles as long as he can remember, but it wasn’t until he was 16 years old and finally heard Sgt. Pepper on a good stereo that he was truly hooked.

“I heard the bass in the song ‘Lucy In the Sky With Diamonds’ and asked the question, ‘What is that instrument?’” said Armstrong.

It wasn’t long after that he bought a bass guitar, joined a band, and now it’s all this! 

Mark Robinette (Ringo Starr) began his musical career in San Jose, CA playing professionally at age 14. His eclectic musical tastes have motivated him to learn many instruments and many styles.

Robinette has played with the Mamas and Papas, Natalie Cole, Frankie Avalon, Bobby Vinton, Donny Osmond, and the Temptations, to name a few. 

Eric Robinette is the Sound Engineer, Stage Manager, and Winnebago Driver. “Handy with a soldering iron and for backing up trailers,” Eric is in high demand as a sound engineer.

He has extensive experience in musical theater, live televison, and corporate events. Eric started his association with Imagine in 1994 mixing sound for their shows on the carousel stage at Lagoon Amusement Park.
