Classic Albums Live Schedule
Do you love the music of the Rolling Stones, The Doors, The Beatles, Led Zeppelin
and Fleetwood Mac? Then you are sure to love Classic Albums Live. The group is composed of gifted musicians who diligently
recreate the albums of some of the most respected and iconic groups to ever emerge on the music scene.
"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,"series producer Craig Martin said.
Albums Live immortalizes the music of these eminent bands, note for note and cut for cut, in the most unique way possible.

Honeymoon Suite and the Headstones.
