People across the world and throughout generations love the Beatles for a variety of reasons. Some love them because they created an incredibly diverse catalogue of music within a relatively short period of time. Others argue that they set a new standard for inventiveness and originality in popular music. For some, hearing a certain song or a specific chord transition transports them back to exact memory from their lives, and for many more their non-formulaic and relatable approach to popular music continues to resonate and inspire, proving that they were well ahead of their time. No matter what the reason is for appreciating The Beatles’ contributions to music as a whole, everyone can agree that their impact remains palpable through contemporary artists and their message.
Guests of all ages are invited to celebrate what Rolling Stone describes as “the most important rock & roll album ever made, an unsurpassed adventure in concept, sound, songwriting, cover art and studio technology by the greatest rock & roll group of all time” and dance the night away while enjoying cocktails and delicious Beatles-themed desserts. All proceeds from this event will benefit the Gold Coast Arts Center & International Film Festival, which is dedicated to promoting and supporting the arts through education, exhibition, performance, and outreach.
