1964...The Tribute returned to the Sooner State last weekend for a three-show run. They play every year and I try to see at least one show. They've really turned it into a "BeatleFest" weekend with a couple of collectors showing their Beatles memorabilia, Andy Babuik who authored "Beatles Gear" and an "Apple Scruff" who went to London and stalked the Beatles. She has great photos that have never been published.

Another guest is Johny Barbata. Barbata drummed for The Turtles, CSN&Y and Jefferson Airplane/Jefferson Starship. He now lives in Ada, OK and has written a book. He was on hand to sign copies of his book. I found out his high school football coach was John Madden!

Barbata sat in with MidLife Crysis, the opening band, and played drums and sang "Big City" which he wrote for the the Jefferson Starship album, Spitfire. He also gave us a nice drum solo.

1964 was without their usual fake Paul. He was ill so they had to have a stand-in. I guess there is a circuit of Beatles tribute bands and people are ready to stand in when needed. The fake fakePaul wasn't as strong a vocalist or bass player as real fakePaul.

A special treat this year was some musicians on horns and strings backing 1964 on some second set songs. The players were OU music students or music teachers. The songs with the strings and horns were fantastic! "Got To Get You Into My Life" and Eleanor Rigby stole the show!

1964 does a good job recreating a Beatles concert. They don't play anything post-Revolver. I'd love to see the Fab Faux sometime but they don't come to Oklahoma like 1964 does!
