Music everyone loves and lyrics everyone knows will be only part of the fun of “1964” The Tribute, a Beatles tribute band coming Saturday to the Grand Opera House.

“They aren’t playing tracks; it’s all live. They sing and dance, and the audience enjoys that interaction. They are in the aisles dancing,” producer and promoter Ben Hart said, adding that audiences often include smaller children and high school and college-age kids in addition to those who grew up during the Beatles’ heyday.

The show “concentrates on the ‘touring years’ of the Beatles,” according to a news release, which Hart said means that all of the songs performed will be from 1954-56 and include hits such as “She Loves You,” Twist and Shout” and “Hard Day’s Night.”

Called the “Best Beatles Tribute on Earth” by Rolling Stone magazine, “1964” The Tribute has performed at venues around the world including New York’s Carnegie Hall and Denver’s Red Rocks amphitheater, where they have played to sold-out audiences for 13 and 11 years, respectively, according to the release.

“The music brings back a lot of memories, the kinds of things you like to remember, and is a lot of fun,” Hart said. “Beatles music is forever.”
