Croatian Lodge Party Center
34900 Lakeshore Blvd.
Eastlake, OH 44095

Experience the anticipation and excitement of Beatles concerts carefully and skillfully recreated by four of Ohio's most popular Tribute bands!! The ReBeats, Revolution Pie, Liverpool Lads and Revolution. They will make it possible for our guests to experience Beatlemania, as felt by fans fortunate enough to attend an actual Beatles concert in the early sixties.

Special guest appearance by Jim Bonfanti of The Rasperries and The Choir Fame.

Rick Iacoboni will be opening the show, setting the ambiance with his interpretations of Beatles songs on his acoustic guitar.

We don't stop there, Beatlemania was not only a musical experience, but an art and cultural experience as well, so we will present exhibits by some of Ohio's most important artists!

George Shuba, Dave Schwensen, Billy Nainiger. George and Dave will share their experiences at the "Infamous"� Cleveland concerts of 1964 and 1966. See Billy transform Beatle songs into canvas art!

Award winning food, and beverages available for purchase from the Croatian Lodge Party Center

Say HI! to Jim for me!

While there is no question Jim has always been the best and most underrated drummer in rock/pop music, I've had the chance to meet him twice, once in Cleveland at the initial reunion show and then in Chicago, first by chance and then at the after party. The guy truly appreciates his fans and is a pleasure to meet. Anyone in the area that has an opportunity to attend this, you MUST go! Fantastic guy, can't say enough about him!

NICE COMMENTS PAT, And certainly a mutual appreciation as fans never took for granted what he brought to the raspberries with his unique talents I always find such great heart-warming human spirit in the stars who dont look down on the average folks.

Jim had posted on Facebook that the gig was canceled due to the really crappy weather. Just as well. I-90 is NOT the place to be driving during a whiteout. We're planning on making the April 15th gig as long as the weather cooperates.
