Senior center takes stroll down Abbey Road with tribute concert

Feb 19, 2017

The Modern Maturity Center in Dover is bringing the music of The Beatles back for its annual Winter Dinner Concert.

The Chicago tribute band BritBeat is channels the mop-top foursome from Liverpool.

Modern Maturity Center President Carolyn Fredricks said the group does more than just play covers, they weave through music history.

"They have a slideshow that’s going on at the same time that actually has footage of the original Beatles when they first came and started touring the United States. They have a bite of them on the Ed Sullivan Show." Fredricks said. 

The Modern Maturity Center is the largest senior facility in the state.

Fredricks said proceeds from the dinner concert will benefit the center’s expanding Meals on Wheels program.

The concert is Saturday Feb. 25 in Dover.
