Beatlemania! a Beatles Tribute band to hit Grass Valley

Because, a Beatles Tribute band, is ready to hit Grass Valley like the Beatles hit the United States in 1964, according to Jeremy O'Dell who founded the band in 2002 and plays the part of John Lennon. The group will perform Saturday at the Grass Valley Veteran's Auditorium.

"We have been excited about coming to Grass Valley ever since John Zurflueh told us about the community several months ago" said O'Dell. Zurflueh's company, Starbright Productions, is producing the show and he has a lot of praise for Because.

"I could not be more excited about bringing this great band to my hometown. For a young group of guys, they have such a professional stage presence and really bring the talent and energy the original Beatles had. They also have a genuine passion for what they do, and I believe they are really going places professionally," said Zurflueh.

O'Dell said Beacuse performed in Paradise in late August and was amazed at the young people there.

"We probably had four generations, and the comments after the show were nothing but positive … everyone really loved the music and the way the band performed," he said.

There were parents bringing their teenage kids and grandparents bringing their kids and grandkids, so bring your family and friends and come enjoy, Zurfleuh added.

Because will begin with songs from the Ed Sullivan Show in 1964, then move on to the Sgt. Pepper era and throughout the band's phenomenal run, including period costume changes.
