The Roots and History of the BEATLES

Do you remember where you were the first time you heard the Beatles? There was a freshness and energy that we had never head before, and it was young and alive and they were the perfect sound for the times. The Beatles were creative, talented and funny. Add George Martin to help produce the music and add Brian Epstein to show them to the world and you have BEATLEMANIA. We’ll take a look at how this phenomenon came to be and look at the story behind the four lads from Liverpool. The music, the business, the people and the times that gave us this amazing Magical Mystery Tour.
