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 at The Retreat, Reading, Berkshire

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).

The band:

Carlton Taylor – vocals and guitar
Lawrie Wright – vocals and guitar
Matt Girling – vocals and bass
