Seeing Strawberry Fields, a Beatles Tribute Band, 12 Years Later at the City Winery


Till There Was You by Strawberry Fields

We took Lee to see Strawberry Fields at BB Kings for his 21st birthday in 2009.  After 12 years we thought it was time to see a Beatles tribute group again.  Sadly, BB Kings closed a few years ago, but Strawberry Fields have taken their show to the City Winery.  The group leader mentioned that they played at BB Kings for 18 years.

8 Days a Week was the first number as the group wore outfits as the real Beatles did at Shea Stadium in 1965.  They played songs throughout the group's years, but not in chronological order.  I thought that they should have started with Please Please Me or I Want to Hold Your Hand. Till There Was You as seen above was played.

After an intermission, the group wore outfits from the Sgt. Pepper era and sang later Beatle songs.  They later dressed as the Beatles did during the rooftop concert.  The performance concluded with the Abbey Road Medley.

I enjoyed the concert but preferred BB Kings as a venue.  City Winery offered a limited brunch menu while there was a large buffet at BB Kings.
