Speaking of over the top, drum roll please....
FAB 40 ABBEY ROAD - Two years ago, The SCENE covered this all volunteer band with a full orchestra boasting members from around the entire greater Houston metroplex, including our beloved Bay Area, as they pulled off an over-the-top free show -- The complete Abbey Road album to a full house at Discovery Green.... Fast Forward two years later. The band has grown by at least 20 members, the full house turnout is now spilling around the entire block, and the show was followed with a loooong set "bonus encore". This was serious all age event shared with parents and children of all generations (a good thing mind you). Future shows are worth looking forward to--Says band organizer Dave Blassingame, "We want to be a little more ambitious next time!" Cheers!
