BeatleJuice at Middlesex Community College
I’m excited and here is why…BeatleJuice is coming to Middlesex Community College.
I must admit I love the Beatles. On February 9, 1964, they began what became known in music circles as the “British Invasion”. The Rolling Stones, The Dave Clark Five, and Gerry and the Pacemakers joined the Beatles in changing music history. But none of these other British rockers captured the imagination of the pubic in quite the way the Beatles did. I’ll admit it…Through the years I managed to purchased most every popular album and song they recorded and still enjoy listening to them at length.
As Emerson once said “imitation is the sincerest form of flattery”. And there is none that flatters better than the Beatles cover band BeatleJuice.
Next month, as part of its 40th anniversary events, MCC will be hosting BeatleJuice at the Lowell Memorial Auditorium, a concert open to the public at large. BeatleJuice is a local but nationally known Beatles cover band that’ll be playing dozens of the Fab Four’s greatest hits.
The event is at the Auditorium, from 7 to 10 p.m. on Thursday, March 31. Tickets are $25 through the Lowell Memorial Auditorium box office, or you can call MCC at 978-656-3106 for more information.
In the coming weeks, MCC’s Mary-Jo Griffin will be giving a pair of tickets away every Tuesday morning to folks who can answer a Beatles trivia question on the college’s radio show, Middlesex Minutes, heard Tuesdays at 7:45 a.m. on 980 WCAP radio.

Two years ago, I visited Liverpool with my family. At the train station we got a taxi to take us to the hotel on the Albert Dock. The taxi driver immediately said, “You look like Beatle people,” which is what they call the pilgrims doing The Beatles tour of the city. He said, “I was always a Gerry Marsden man,” meaning the lead singer of the Pacemakers, another popular Liverpool group.
The Byrds have done more for the diversity of Rock n’ Roll then the Beatles , the Rolling Stones,etc.
Dean I respectfully, totally, 100% disagree…I like the Byrds, but the Beatles laid the foundation for the music revolution of the 60’s. And the impressive thing is their music continued to change and grow as the years went moved along. I agree the Byrds brought us folk rock, but they never really grew as a band…Former Byrd member David Crosby needed to join Stills and Nash to find a new outlet for his creativity.
I should have said the former band members have done more for the diversity of Rock n’ Roll than any other band. The key word Tony is diversity.
I get you point now Dean..thanks
