Bands have covered Beatles tunes for years, but none like Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Bluegrass Band. Imagine the music of the Fab Four shaken up with infusions of bluegrass and jazz and topped off with a classical twist. The result: a satisfying musical cocktail. So, what if The Beatles were actually from somewhere in the Black Mountain Hills of Dakota?
Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Bluegrass Band is a collection of four very different musicians creating a new sound from the greatest music ever written by the greatest band ever, The Beatles. Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Bluegrass Band’srepertoire features new and innovative takes on songs like Eleanor Rigby, Back in the U.S.S.R, Come Together, Blackbird and more.
Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Bluegrass Band is a modern bluegrass band that plays and sings the songs of The Beatles. The band starts with some of the best music composed by Paul McCartney, John Lennon and George Harrison, then takes it on a “magical mystery tour” all its own. Fundamentally, it’s an acoustic version of The Beatles using a little experimentation. These familiar songs come from instruments you normally wouldn’t expect to hear, played in a way they are not normally played.
