What to Expect
When you come to a Rocky Raccoon "A Celebration of The Beatles" perfomance you are delivered a musical and visual experience for all ages. Depending on the length of the show desired, the band presents three visual periods of The Beatles career. The Early Years, The Psychedelic Years, and The Winding Down Years. With music from these periods that not only include the "hits" but dive into the "deep tracks" of The Beatles albums that many other Beatles Tribute Bands don't perform. For shorter events the band will dress in one of the iconic early period uniforms and perform a mixed grab bag of songs from the entire career of The Beatles including solo songs. Our performance leaves people feeling happy and nostalgic. Many times they are amazed to hear these tunes played live for the first time.
Based in Des Moines, Iowa and formed in October of 2015, Rocky Raccoon "A Celebration of The Beatles" has built a musical and visual experience for all ages. The group features five multi-talented musicians who are huge Beatles fans themselves. This means they take the time to "get it right". The music is performed with an attention to detail few other tribute bands present. Of course the show features "the hits" but what this band excels at are the deeper album cuts that other tribute bands often don't. For the musicians of Rocky Raccoon, even solo songs by John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr are thought of as Beatles' songs. This allows for a comprehensive look into the complete career of The Beatles. Period correct stage attire, vintage and re-issue instruments, and amplifiers add to the true flavor of the reproduction of the music and a great deal to the vibe and visuals of the Rocky Raccoon experience.
