Beatle’s Night with 4EverFab & British Motorcars of NE

Friday August 11th 7 – 9 pm

Four musicians – Bob Hinsman, Kevin Dooley, Phil Donovan and Fran Hart – who have always had a deep love for the music of The Beatles came together to make this great band happen.  4EverFab recreates this revered music as authentically as possible, using many of the same style instruments The Beatles played.  Unique elements of each show include narrating the “back stories” of the songs, placing them in context of the 60’s, and playing each show “by request” so that they play the songs audiences want to hear. They play music from all eras of The Beatle’s music from Love Me Do to the final medley on Abbey Road.

 

The British Invasion of the Taunton Green will be complimented by a visit from some outstanding vehicles from British Motorcars of New England.  As you listen to some great Beatles music, take a stroll through this fabulous collection.

 

The DTF food truck will be onsite serving burgers & dogs, drinks & snacks to the masses at this fun & relaxing night on the Green.
