RAIN is a multi-media, multi-dimensional experience...a fusion of historical footage and hilarious television commercials from the 1960s lights up video screens and live cameras zoom in for close-ups.
Sing along with your family and friends to such Beatlemaniac favorites as “Let It Be,” “Hey Jude,” “My Guitar Gently Weeps,” “Come Together” and “Can’t Buy Me Love.”
There are other acts who respectfully attempt to replicate a subset of The Beatles music, but only RAIN can perform the full range of The Beatles discography live onstage, including the most complex and challenging songs that the Beatles themselves recorded in the studios but never performed for an audience.
No other rendition of the Fab Four's music comes close to this level of performance, which has taken years of mastery and attention to detail that is unmatched. From the early days of their appearance on the ED SULLIVAN SHOW in 1964, through the "Sgt. Pepper" era and on to the "Abbey Road" years, RAIN's performance captures it all flawlessly.
“Uncanny! RAIN is a quartet of fine musicians in their own right…as The Beatles, they triumph!” cheers the Boston Herald.
“An adoring Valentine to The Beatles,” declares the Washington Post.
