The Weeklings will perform at a drive-in concert at 6:30 p.m. Aug. 18 at the Mayo Performing Arts Center, 100 South St., Morristown, New Jersey.
The Weeklings channel the music of The Beatles. The band performs Beatles material with a style that is at the same time authentic and freshly original — clearly distinguishing their musical approach from anyone on the "Beatles tribute" scene today. For the Weeklings, "channeling" means far more than simple note-for-note reproduction. The band lives in the spirit, humor, swagger and bold creativity of the 60s, bringing the Beatles to life, not through costumes and gimmicks, but through their own original edge. They infuse this vision into newly arranged covers such as "Paperback Writer" and "Baby You’re A Rich Man," as well as in the original Beatles-inspired power pop rock ‘n roll that they compose and record. The Weeklings show their audiences both what The Beatles were, and what they might have produced if they were still together today.
Members include Glen Burtnik, Bob Burger, John Merjave and Joe Bellia.
Tickets are $125 per car for preferred parking and $100 for general parking. Add a souvenir "MPAC Drive-In Concert" t-shirt for an additional $20.
