Leuzinger's Alumni showed up in Redondo Beach CA to hear the thundering velvet hands of Orlando Pete Salazar and Richie Castillo of Our Class of 1980 as they played their musical instruments in an Early Beatles Jam! They were joined by Bobby Blotzer of 'RATT', CURTIS, Mickey Kakes, Mike Blotzer, and Al Garcia. These guys were amazing!
Starting off the evening was CURTIS. Curtis floated somewhere between rock and jazz with guitar skills and stylings that were just excellent! ¬†
The 'Fab Six' then took to the stage and covered Early Beatles songs; Love Me Do, A Hard Day's Night, Can't Buy Me Love, Help You've Got to Hide Your Love Away, and Money (That's What I Want). ¬†The nice thing about listening to this tribute band is you could hear and enjoy their rendition of Beatles songs without all the screaming girls that drowned out the music during a real Beatles concert in the early 1960s.
Plenty of Leuzinger's 80s Alumni gathered to hear them play and to sing along with those old familiar songs. For the alumni, some faces were hard to recognize at first... but then their eyes flew open wide. There were plenty of handshakes and hugs and laughs. It was a chance to remember innocence. It was a chance to catch up on 'now'.
Winding up the evening was Richie Castillo's 'Cover Me Band.' They played a set of songs ranging from the 50s to today. They 'wowed' the crowd with more familiar tunes by a variety artists!
