If you love the music of the Beatles you won't want to miss our Sgt Peppers Concert on Saturday September 29, 7.30pm at Birkenhead Presbyterian Church 172 Hinemoa Street, Birkenhead.


The Beatmobiles play the best of the Beatles, including some of the more obscure John Lennon songs, not normally heard live. This concert will feature most of the songs from the sgt Pepper album - Sgt Pepper's lonely Hearts Club Band, With a Little Help from my Friends, Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds, Getting Better, Fixing a Hole, Lovely Rita, and A Day in the Life, as well as many other of the Beatles great songs. We have invited some guests to perform this time, and have a supper interval, when you can catch up with the band members while you catch your breath!


The Beatmobiles is a six piece band, and performs classic versions of this great music. The Beatles spent many months recording their later albums, they were never performed live, and they have been quite a challenge to learn to performance standard. We especially like performing songs like the Abbey Road medley, I am the Walrus, and Strawberry fields Forever, but know that most people come to hear the number ones of the Beatles, so there will of course be plenty of these numbers too. The band was formed to play at my birthday, my family knew how much of a Beatles fan I am. This lineup has both my sons with me, plus a great up and coming young guitarist, a fantastic keyboard player, and Tommy Rock, our smiling vocalist and frontman. We are all in other bands, but keep this one going just because we enjoy the challenge of learning and performing this great music. And we have a following who obviously love the Beatles music too.

Casa Del Gelato Birkenhead, our local ice cream shop in Birkenhead is making a Sgt Pepper ice cream especially for the occasion, a dessert to try before the concert?

Tickets are $15, there may be some door sales, but to be sure of a seat (we are limited to 170 seats) it would pay to contact me by phone or email soon. I know you will enjoy this evening. Get your tickets right away. And tell your friends about it too!

Tickets are also available at Yarntons and Birkenhead Primary School, Reprographics in Takapuna and Paper Plus Glenfield.
