Carnegie Hall invaded by ‘Liverpool Legends’
One of my favorite groups in town, the Liverpool Legends, stars of the Branson-based show of the same name, added another feather to their cap as they performed at the world famous Carnegie Hall in New York City earlier this month.
The group, featuring Marty Scott as George Harrison, Bob Beahon as Paul McCartney, Kevin Mantegna as John Lennon, and Greg George as Ringo Starr, worked with Help Keep Music Alive, an organization that raises money and awareness for school music and art departments across the United States. As part of the program, the group performed with numerous top musicians from several selected schools from the New York City area.
“It was my favorite show ever,” Scott said.
All profits from the event went directly to the Student Youth Travel Association, SYTA, who held their annual conference in Branson last August.
The group calls the Caravelle Theatre in Branson home for several months throughout the year, but when they aren’t here, they literally travel the globe. They have performed in front of more than 60,000 people several times at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California, and played to a sold-out crowd of 16,000 in Mexico City.
The lads are set to kick off their 2016 season at the Caravelle Theatre in May. For more information, visit liverpoollegends.com.
