Construct yo’ mind! WITH THE BEATLES!!!!!!!!!

Their songs and the unique souls that produced them go under Scott Frieman’s unique microscope in his “Deconstructing the Beatles” series.

FabFour Heads who haven’t experienced it yet get another change this Tuesday, June 24th, when he presents “Deconstructing Sgt. Pepper” at the JCC in Manhattan.

Doors open at 6:30, and the show goes from 7-9. Admission is $9.00 for members, $13 for non-members. The JCC in Manhattan is located at 334 Amsterdam Avenue at 76th Street.

Two other “Deconstructings” are on the slate for the NYC area, in Bethel and Pleasantville. See the full details, direct from Frieman, below:

On August 29, 1966, the Beatles performed their last concert at Candlestick Park in San Francisco.  In the year that followed, the Beatles set the standard for a studio-only band and changed the world of popular music with the single “Strawberry Fields Forever”/”Penny Lane” and the album Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.

In Deconstructing Sgt. Pepper, I’ll be diving into the Beatles’ creative process and the making of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.  Filled with all the songwriting backstories, production analysis, and rare audio and video that you’ve come to expect from a Deconstructing The Beatles show, this lecture is sure to please Beatles fans of all ages.

This show continues to be a favorite of audiences throughout the U.S. and Canada.  Now, you can see it in New York in three locations: June 24 at the JCC in Manhattan, July 11 at the Bethel Woods Center for the Arts in Bethel, and July 15 at the Jacob Burns Film Center in Pleasantville.

A splendid time is guaranteed for all!

 

“Deconstructing the Beatles: Revolver” Shows Announced for March, April

March 3, 2012 by  

There’s a new reason to check out the fascinating “Deconstructing the Beatles” content series from Scott Frieman.

You have a right to know "Revolver."

He’s introduced “TOMORROW NEVER KNOWS: DECONSTRUCTING THE BEATLES’ REVOLVER”. Here’s how the NY-based composer/producer/engineer explains the latest addition to his Fab Four breakdowns:

“The Beatles’ Revolver is a groundbreaking album that routinely tops ‘Best Album’ lists. In Tomorrow Never Knows: Deconstructing The Beatles’ Revolver, I’ll be taking music fans young and old on a journey through this remarkable album.

The 1966 album Revolver launched a period of studio experimentation for the Beatles that coincided with the end of their concert performances. With memorable songs, such as ‘Eleanor Rigby,’ ‘Yellow Submarine,’ and ‘Tomorrow Never Knows,’ the Beatles pushed popular music to a place it had never been.

Using rare audio and video clips, as well as anecdotes about the creation of the songs, ‘Tomorrow Never Knows: Deconstructing The Beatles’ Revolver,’ explores the groundbreaking production techniques that went into creating this landmark piece of music history. In addition to many of the tracks from Revolver, we will also explore the creation of two other songs recorded during the same time period, ‘Paperback Writer’ and ‘Rain’.

I’ll be premiering ‘Tomorrow Never Knows’ at the Avon Theatre in Stamford, CT on March 28 and the Cinema Arts Centre in Huntington, NY on April 9.

Additional ‘Tomorrow Never Knows’ shows will happen throughout 2012.”
