Classic Albums Live Schedule
Classic Albums Live is comprised of talented musicians who meticulously recreate the
albums that you know and love from such iconic bands as Led Zeppelin, the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, The Eagles, Fleetwood
Mac, The Doors and Van Halen. Series producer Craig Martin explained the production, "All of our focus is put into the music.
We perform the works of the Beatles, Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin the same way an orchestra performs the works of Mozart. We
don't bother with imitation or impersonation. The bands are big - upwards of 11 pieces. We research these albums and go to
great lengths to reproduce each and every sound live. We never use tape or computers. We'll bring in a children's choir, a
sitar player, a string quartet, whatever it takes to get it right."
Note for note, cut for cut, Classic Albums Live
honors and celebrates these legendary bands in an authentic way. And a new group of musicians is assembled for each album.
Martin said it's a tedious task: "That's the real challenge. Finding the right musicians for the right album. So far we've
been bang on with every performance."
In the past, musicians have included members of Jesse Cooke, Nelly Furtado, Moist,
David Usher, Honeymoon Suite and the Headstones. The production might be coming to a town near you. The production is currently
on tour and headed to venues like Hard Rock Live Orlando, the Bergen Performing Arts Center in Englewood, NJ, the Cape Cod
Melody Tent in Hyannis, MA and many other venues across the country. Don't miss your chance to be there when this dynamic
production is presented in your town.
