Hugely popular at The Village Easter Festival earlier in the year, the Acoustic Beatles Shambles are back playing live at The Retreat.
Acoustic Beatles Shambles is a collective of professional musicians from Reading and the surrounding area who share a love of the Beatles. Putting equal emphasis on “acoustic”, “Beatles” and “shambles”, the group don’t plan a setlist and rely on audience participation—mostly by shouting or writing on Post-It Notes—to come up with the Beatles songs they want to hear. No Beatles numbers are off-limits (well, within reason), although there’s always a smart-arse who wants “Revolution 9″…
As John Lennon once said, “A splendid time is guaranteed for all” (subject to terms and conditions).
