YORKTOWN, N.Y. – “Here Comes the Sun,” indeed.
The Hofners, a Beatles tribute band, opened the Summer Concert Series on Sunday, July 1, performing a two-hour set in near-triple-digit temperatures. Hundreds of lawn chairs were strategically scattered around Jack DeVito Veterans Memorial Field, as concert-goers looked for any shade they could find.
Despite the sweltering conditions, The Hofners played dozens of tunes spanning the brief-but-legendary career of The Beatles, beginning with the mop top Beatlemania era and then donning suits matching those from the iconic “Sgt. Pepper’s” album cover.
The Summer Concert Series is organized by the Yorktown Lions Club and the Yorktown Parks and Recreation Department. The next concert will be on Sunday, July 15, as Group du Jour performs music of the past and present. That concert will begin at 6 p.m.
