Nostalgic Music from The Beetles & The Spaniels Forever

John Lennon said it best when he sang — “All You Need Is Love!”

Show some love and help the homeless and abused animals of Northwest Indiana as you enjoy the music of The Beetles and other great rock n’ rollers by coming out to The Memorial Opera House on Saturday, November 5 for a nostalgic evening of live music from 6-9:30 p.m.

The doors of the historic venue — 104 East Indiana Avenue in Valparaiso, IN — open at 5 p.m. with music starting at 6 p.m. Kicking things off with a concert set of timeless rock and R&B classics will be the iconic international vocal group, The Spaniels Forever. The historic harmony combo led by 82-year-old R&B Hall of Fame inductee Billy Shelton, will share stories and sing songs from rock ‘n’ roll’s early years before leaving the audience with their own #1 international hit, “Goodnight Sweetheart Good-night.”

But it won’t be time to say “goodnight” until after Meet The Beetles — one of the Midwest’s most beloved Beatles Tribute acts — perform two sets of FAB music, with each set depicting the music and look of a specific era of the Liverpool bands’ career.

Regional radio personality Tom Lounges — currently heard interviewing top celebrities every week on the airwaves of Lakeshore Public Radio — will co-emcee the event with the beautiful and charming Charlie Smith.

Crowned “Miss Indiana” in 1964, Smith went to Hollywood where she appeared in several hit TV shows of the 1960s and in 3 of Elvis Presley’s films. Charlie was also married for many years to Rock And Roll Hall of Fame inductee Mike Smith of The Dave Clark Five until his untimely passing. A dyed-in-the-wool animal lover, Charlie is the perfect co-emcee for this kind of event!

There will be a few very cool rock n’ roll memorabilia items and other items being auctioned off at this family friendly event offering a nostalgic trip back in time, as two great performing groups rock out to help NW Indiana’s homeless and abused animals.

The tickets are $12.00 and $15.00 in advance, or $15.00 and $18.00 on day of show. A special group rate is available for purchases of 10 or more tickets. A $2.00 service fee is added to each ticket.
