MPAC To Present The Weeklings In Drive In Concert On August 18

(MORRISTOWN, NJ) -- Coming off the success of their first Drive in Concert in June, Mayo Performing Arts Center, in partnership with the Morris County Park Commission, will present The Weeklings - Beatles Bash - at Fosterfields Historical Living Farm on Tuesday, August 18 at 6:30pm (rain date August 19). Tickets are $125 per car (preferred seating) and $100 per car (general admission). All proceeds will benefit MPAC's recovery. 

The Weeklings channel the music of The Beatles. The band performs Beatles material with a style that is at the same time authentic and freshly original - clearly distinguishing their musical approach from anyone on the "Beatles tribute" scene today. For the Weeklings, "channeling" means far more than simple note-for-note reproduction. The band lives in the spirit, humor, swagger and bold creativity of the 60s, bringing the Beatles to life, not through costumes and gimmicks, but through their own original edge. They infuse this vision into newly arranged covers such as "Paperback Writer" and "Baby You're A Rich Man", as well as in the original Beatles-inspired power pop rock 'n roll that they compose and record. The Weeklings show their audiences both what The Beatles were, and what they might have produced if they were still together today.

Tickets must be purchased in advance through the MPAC Box Office at http://www.MayoArts.Org or 973-539-8008. No tickets will be sold at the gate. Additionally, commemorative Drive in Concert T-Shirts are available for $20 per shirt.

The Fosterfields site will be able to accommodate approximately 160 cars that will be spaced out with social distancing guidelines provided by local authorities. Attendees can watch from the comfort of their vehicles, or can bring a lawn chair and sit in their marked out space.

Since March 12, MPAC, a non-profit performing arts center, has had to cancel over 60 events and reschedule another 25 as a result of the shutdown caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Much like other local businesses, MPAC's revenue has been significantly impacted by the shutdown, with no date in sight to reopen.
