Iowa’s #1 Beatles Tribute Experience
Rocky Raccoon “A Celebration of The Beatles” Iowa’s #1 Beatles Tribute Experience has been taking many generations of people by storm as they lead them both musically and visually back to the mystic time known as the Sixties. The band leaves audiences in awe of their beautiful vocal harmonies and their spot on renditions of Beatles hits and deep album tracks. Rocky Raccoon is based in Des Moines, Iowa and is available to perform any size event throughout the Midwest and beyond.
The band takes the stage with authentic Rickenbacker, Hofner, Gretsch, Ludwig and Epiphone instruments, plugged into classic Vox amplifiers and dressed in tailored era appropriate Beatles clothing. During a performance the five (yes, that’s 5. The band brings it’s own George Martin along) members of Rocky Raccoon capture the distinct personalities of the Fab Four to give the ultimate Beatles experience.
During a “full” show, three distinct costume changes cover different eras of The Beatles illustrious career. Donning the early Shea Stadium uniforms from the highest point of Beatlemania to Sgt. Pepper’s psychedelic trippiness, into the less formal more relaxed look of the later studio years. Hear the opening Rickenbacker 12-string chord of “A Hard Day’s Night”, the Chet Atkins’ styled guitar lead of “All My Loving”, the piccolo trumpet solo of “Penny Lane”, the full orchestration of “A Day In The Life”, the toe-tapping sing-along of “Ob-La-Di-Ob-La-Da”, the heavy rocking of “Revolution” and “Helter Skelter” to the moving final refrain of “The End” from the Abbey Road Medley.
