Beatlemania has hit St. John’s!

The Beatles – Back in the N.F.L.D.

Beatlemania has hit St. John’s!

I love Paul McCartney.

I used to have a huge poster of him on my bedroom wall back in my teens (When the Beatles were still on VOCM’s Top 10).

I even loved him when he and Danny Williams went head to head on CNN. (I had to secretly love him then. I didn’t want to get voted off the Island).

The only thing better than Paul McCartney, is Peter Halley playing Paul McCartney. I love Peter.

Spirit of Newfoundland has done it again! I don’t know how that crowd comes up with ideas! I suspect the creative process requires a little “Day Tripper.”

The show is so well done and stars the Fab Four: Peter Halley (Who I love), Sheila Williams (NL’s own Lucille Ball), Darrin Martin (Amazing voice) and Shelley Neville (Will give you shivers).
The skits are written as well as any Lennon – McCartney number with a touch of that wonderful Newfoundland spin that Spirit of Newfoundland is so famous for.

The show centers around an accidental visit The Beatles make to Gander back in the 60’s while on their way to their first appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show. Their plane has a stopover at the Gander International Airport. Paul and John leave the plane for a pint at the airport bar and run into the Gander girls, Nina and Dot. The girls come up with the phrase “Beatlemania” and as they say, the rest is history.

The show will keep you laughing all evening.

Spirit’s Fab Four takes you on a Magical Mystery Tour of The Beatles song portfolio, and just for fun, they perform some well - known numbers in different musical genres; Like Gregorian chants, Country and Western and even Disco!

Peter, Sheila, Darrin and Shelley do an amazing job with this show.

Is there a doctor in the house? Yes there is. Sir Paul himself would say “My Guitar Gently Weeps” if he knew his music was performed by Dr. Sandy Morris, Boomer Stamp, and the Spirit of Newfoundland Band.

The dinner was absolutely delicious with a choice of chicken or Spirit of Newfoundland’s signature dish, The Tornado. It’s a mouth-watering combination of salmon wrapped in cod and baked.
