    SULPHUR SPRINGS – On the heels of a sold-out debut of the City Hall Series last month, Gus Gustafson and Crossroads Music Company and Listening Room will bring Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Bluegrass Band to town on Saturday, Aug. 23.

    SPLBB is a modern bluegrass band that plays and sings the songs of The Beatles. The band begins with some of the best music composed by Paul McCartney, John Lennon and George Harrison and goes on a Magical Mystery Tour all its own. 
    “Fundamentally, it’s an acoustic version of The Beatles using a little experimentation of sounds coming from instruments you normally wouldn’t expect to hear, played in a way they are not normally played,” said band leader Dave Walser. “The result is a pleasing sound with a lot of fun surprises along the way.”
    Walser is a world-class musician and producer who is currently working with Sulphur Springs singer/songwriter Hannah Kirby on her new record.
    He is one of three members of the group, Beatlegras, who opened the 2007 Fall Festival.  
    “The Beatles were a band that broke the mold of all things rock and roll,” Walser noted. “Sgt. Pepper’s follows closely with that same spirit of innovation with songs that are already loved by millions.”
    Walser has asked Kirby to sit in during the set, which should be a special treat for the local audience.
    Also sitting in for Bach Norwoord, the band’s regular bass player, will be the incredibly gifted George Anderson, also one of the original members of Beatlegras.
    Tickets are $30 and can be purchased at www.crossroadsmusiccompany.com. Pre-orders are recommend as seating is limited to 100. Doors open at 7 p.m. Music begins at 7:30 p.m. Light refreshments will be available.
