From the Jaycees Website:

AfterFAB: More than just great live music. Experienced musicians and deep music fans, they know that Beatles enthusiasts have always thought of John, Paul, George, and Ringo as Beatles, and all of their music is Beatles music, no matter the stages of their careers. Millions of fans have imagined what it would be like to hear the solo songs of all four fabs together, as if the group had kept going after 1970. AfterFab brings that experience! Devotees are delighted to hear Beatles experts entertain with the back-stories of the songs and the men who made them. Newcomers to Beatles fandom love the opportunity to hear and learn something !

AfterFab are not impersonators. It’s all about the music — classic songs, accurately arranged like the studio versions, which not all tributes do, and the solo Beatles themselves rarely did when playing live. Fans applaud this approach, and experience the live renderings of the songs the way they know and love them. Able to go well beyond the greatest hits, AfterFab sets are tailored to each performance occasion. An audience of hardcore Beatles fans will hear great listening songs, including iconic deep album tracks not heard elsewhere. For partying crowds, out will come more big-beat rockers than you ever knew were in the solo Beatles catalog.

Bring a chair, a blanket, bring the kids and bring your friends! Bring strangers! And join us for a great evening!
