Columbia State Community College welcomes Bob Eubanks: “Backstage with The Beatles” to the Cherry Theater on April 20 as part of the First Farmers Performance Series.

Bob Eubanks: “Backstage with The Beatles” offers a huge entertainment value for both Beatles fans and music lovers alike. The show consists of never heard stories experienced by Bob Eubanks during The Beatles tour in America in the early ‘60s, rare video footage, still images, special effects and merchandise to help embrace what it must have been like to experience The Beatles in concert. All of Bob’s stories lead into a hit song that best represents the subject discussed and the time period of when the story took place.

“It will be fun to hear first- hand stories of The Beatles arrival in America and, of course, to hear music performed live by a stellar tribute band,” said Bethany Lay, Columbia State vice president for advancement and executive director of the Columbia State Foundation. “You are invited to join us for a great evening as we wrap up the 20th season of the Performance Series.”
