REVIEW | 'One's' Revisits The Beatles Biggest Hits

After a hard days night and working like a dog, my sister Kim was definitely ready for a night out. Fortunately for her I had acquired an extra ticket to 'One’s', a Beatles tribute show at the Performing Arts Centre on October 20th.

Featuring an 11 piece band, a large video screen and impressive lighting, this tribute show highlighted Beatles songs from the mid to late 60's that made it to number one on the charts.

Former Q107 DJ Al Joynes provided trivia facts and a bit of humour during pre-recorded video segments, between the band’s enthusiastic renditions of The Beatles hits.

Playing to a full house (of well over 800) the two act show concluded with number one hits the Fab Four when they all took on solo careers.

The show was dubbed a multi-media extravaganza, marrying live music with video images and special lighting. This combination often missed the mark by looping cheesy graphics throughout entire songs. But when the music, imagery and lighting were utilized to their fullest potential, it made for some very breathtaking moments.

This was Kim’s very first time visiting the Performing Arts Centre located in downtown St. Catharines and judging by her reaction to the Beatles show, she loved it...."ya, ya, ya" and will no doubt be back for more acts in the future.
