By Trudy Downs

Member, Performing Arts Council

James Herron brings his quartet Abbey Road to Riderwood for a whole new perspective on the Beatles’ music to the Riderwood Chapel at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, September 20, sponsored by the Performing Arts Council.

The Abbey Road Jazz Ensemble performs The Beatles catalogue. A quartet of talented jazz musicians who share a passion for the music of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr presents the Beatles in jazz. The group is headed by James Herron on drums; Craig Gildner, Guitar and Vocals; Bronson Hoover, Keyboard and Vocals; and Cyndy Elliott, Bass and Vocals.

Riderwood audiences will remember James and Bronson from the recent performance of X-Ray and the Shades. The music was superb and if you missed that performance don’t let it happen again. Make sure to buy your tickets as soon as they go on sale. This will be a popular performance because the music of the Beatles is what many of us grew up hearing and loving.

Remember because space is limited, we will sell only 200 general admission tickets (A, B, or C), 10 wheelchair seats, and 35 walker seats. It is very important that you purchase a ticket in the appropriate section, because if you need a specialized seat and have a general admission ticket we may have to refund your ticket because we will not have sufficient specialized seating. So buy a wheelchair seat or walker seat if you need specialized seating and buy your tickets early in order to be sure you get a seat for this very special performance.

Tickets are on sale in all dining lobbies Monday and Tuesday, September 16 and 17.  NOTE: The show will be in the Chapel due to construction in the Encore Theater and Lakeside Commons.
