IMAGINE: The Beatles Solo Years
On Friday, February 1 Biddeford native Joe Boucher brings his five piece band along with a classical string quartet back to the City Theater stage to present “IMAGINE – The Beatles Solo Years” to benefit the Biddeford High School Music Department.
In 2017, Joe presented “Piano Men – The Music of Elton and Billy” to a sold out house at Winterfest for the first annual BHS fundraiser. Joe (BHS Class of 1987) and his band have been performing Piano Men with symphony orchestras around the country since 2011 regularly playing to sold out theaters.
They returned for Winterfest 2018 presenting their follow up show “Classic Rock” which they like to describe as “The WBLM playlist performed by rock band and orchestra”. They again were welcomed by a sold out City Theater and were invited to play both Piano Men and Classic Rock at last summer’s La Kermesse Festival.
This year’s concert will again feature rock band and classical musicians and, as with the past two years, will involve BHS Student musicians from the Chorus and Jazz Band. The concert features the solo songs of John, Paul, George and Ringo after the 1969 breakup of the Beatles.
This year alone has worked directly with some comedy greats on philanthropy projects like Amy Schumer’s Blue Ocean Animal Rights Fundraiser that sold out in hours and also the SOLD OUT ‘Comics Come Home’ for the Cam Neely Foundation at TD Garden with Dennis Leary and Jimmy Fallon. In January Showtime premiered ‘Unsportsmanlike Comedy’ hosted by Rob Gronkowski featuring Juston and a couple of other national acts with ‘Patriots Fever’. Juston has been making his national mark for two decades now with 3 ‘Tonight Show’ appearances, TWO COMEDY CENTRAL SPECIALS, and writing credits that include TV favorites like Kevin James & Gary Valentine.
Juston’s first Amazon Prime Special premiered in August and he can be seen in Theaters and Comedy Clubs around the county including the World Famous Comedy Magic Club.
