July 29th

The ultimate Beatles experience

Strawberry Fields is the closest you can get to seeing the Beatles perform live. These four acclaimed musicians deliver a unique theatrical experience, taking audiences of all ages on a chronological journey through the Beatles’ timeless catalogue. The use of costumes, vintage instrumentation and amplification delivers a truly authentic audio and visual experience.

Strawberry Fields consists of cast members from the Broadway and touring company of the hit musical, Beatlemania. They have performed throughout the country and around the world, most notably at Shea Stadium, CitiField, Fenway Park, and Yankee Stadium. Strawberry Fields also holds a record for the longest running Beatles Show on Broadway, having performed its legendary "Beatles Brunch" for 18 consecutive years at BB King’s in Times Square.
They can currently be seen performing the Ultimate Beatles Brunch each and every Sunday at the all-new City Winery at Pier 57 in New York City.
The cast of Strawberry Fields is delighted to bring the magic of their Beatles experience to this audience.



Milagro was formed in 2005 by a group of musicians to pay tribute to the Santana band. The original idea was to accurately reproduce the music staying as close to the original arrangement as possible, while at the same time, spreading the joy of Santana's music to new and old fans alike. This vision continues today with an impressive collection of songs in the band's repertoire.
The band began by playing a few small clubs and performing at area colleges while constantly developing their sound as well as adding and replacing members.
By 2013, the lineup had changed, except for two original members, to reflect the current membership and ever-expanding venue roster.
The band’s current schedule features some of the area’s top venues. Milagro has been featured on the Internet show The Maverik Soul Hour, positively reviewed in LIVE magazine, and performed with Santana's featured vocalist Marvin Moore-Hough.

unforgettable fire


U2 Tribute Show

Unforgettable Fire, or ‘UF’, was born on New Year's Day in 1995 as one of the very first U2 Tribute Bands to ever perform in America. After 25 years of performing at the most prestigious venues throughout the East Coast and beyond, UF has formed the reputation of being the preeminent U2 Tribute Show in North America.
The band strives to present a truly authentic U2 experience, both sonically, and visually. In addition to performing a very impressive array of U2 material from pre-”Boy” to the most recent “Songs of Experience,” the band does everything in its power (from wardrobe to lighting) to create the live U2 concert setting for their audience. The members of UF are also very dedicated fans of U2, and will not settle for anything less than complete authenticity.


soul sound revue

August 26th

Greatest hits of Motown

Soul Sound Revue, by far the hottest nine-piece Motown show this side of Detroit, performs the greatest hits in the true Motown Tradition. Soul Sound Revue recreates the dynamic vocal harmonies and stylings of classic Motown groups of the 1960s, ‘70s and ‘80s: The Four Tops, The Temptations, Stevie Wonder, Earth Wind & Fire, and many more. With all its flash and finery, reminiscent of a time when a band’s looks were as important as its sound, Soul Sound Revue’s three lead vocalists explode onto the stage backed by a power house rhythm and horn section.  
Audiences of all ages will groove through the ‘60s and boogie through the ‘70s with Soul Sound Revue.
