KENILWORTH, NJ - On Friday, Sept. 23, the Kenilworth Historical Society will present “Twist and Shout With The Beatles,” an exciting, fun-filled evening of Beatles music and a Beatles-themed buffet dinner, at the Kenilworth Veterans Center (33 South 21st Street) from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m.
The event will feature a spectacular live two-hour Broadway-caliber show by the renowned Beatles tribute band “Beatles Faux Sale,” which has won acclaim for capturing the voices, style, appearance, instruments and stage setup of the famed Fab Four so authentically and remarkably well as to create the sensation of participating in an actual 1960s Beatles concert. All phases of The Beatles’ legendary career and song-writing genius from the Ed Sullivan era to “Sgt. Pepper” and “Abbey Road” are reflected in the impressive repertoire of Beatles music that Beatles Faux Sale will perform live for everyone’s listening and dancing pleasure. The band will present Beatles trivia and prizes during intermission, and a 50/50 raffle and gift auction will also take place during the event. In addition, a special Beatles-themed buffet dinner, including such musically related selections as Honey Baked Chicken (for “Honey Pie”), Sausage and Peppers (for “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band”), Penne Vodka (for “Penny Lane”), assorted submarine sandwiches (for “Yellow Submarine”) and Strawberry Field Greens Salad (for “Strawberry Fields Forever”), plus dessert, coffee and tea, will be served during the evening. Admission to the dinner and show is $55. Advance reservations (by September 9) are requested. The event seating plan accommodates eight to ten people per table. Early reservations are encouraged to ensure availability and avoid disappointment. For reservations/tickets, please call 908-709-0434, 908-709-0391 or visit Especially Yours Florist (13 North 20th Street, Kenilworth), where tickets for the event also are being sold. Proceeds from “Twist and Shout With The Beatles” will benefit the Kenilworth Historical Society’s Oswald J. Nitschke House (c. 1880) “living history” museum and cultural arts center by helping defray the cost of an elevator that makes all levels of the recently restored site fully accessible to everyone. The New Jersey-based Beatles Faux Sale band comprises four accomplished musicians who, through their 20 years of Beatles tribute band experience, have perfected their appearance, music, vocals, mannerisms and style to closely match those of the Fab Four members they represent. Band members include Ken Dziuba (aka John Lennon), Marty Trentacosta (aka Paul McCartney), Len Carparelli (aka George Harrison) and Greg Dziuba (aka Ringo Starr). Beatles Faux Sale has performed at a vast array of venues, including a Feb. 7, 2014, live TV appearance on PIX 11 Morning News in celebration of the 50-year anniversary of The Beatles’ arrival in the United States. The Kenilworth Historical Society is an independent, volunteer-based, non-profit, tax-exempt, 501(c)3 organization dedicated to the research, preservation and interpretation of the Oswald J. Nitschke House, local history and culture. # # #
