Day 204 – Glen Burtnik’s Beatle Bash

Glen Burtnik is pretty much a god.

My friend Glen Burtnik has been putting on these insanely amazing Beatles shows for a while now. He chooses a few of the Beatles albums, puts a band together (which includes strings, horns, choir, etc.) and then they play the album from beginning to end as if you were to listen to it. Tonight they did Revolver and a ton other songs. The songs sounded almost exactly like the recordings but with a real raw live sound. Glen sang wonderfully! And what I appreciated most about it was that it wasn’t cheesy or put on. It wasn’t about trying to look like The Beatles…it was about trying to showcase their music in it’s true form.
Tonight’s show was at the State Theater in New Brunswick. A few of my other friends we involved in the show…although from this photo you can’t see anyone of them because I was in the nose-bleed section. Haha!
