On 25th November 2017 the Sheffield Sgt. Pepper Project, a 30 Piece Live Band, will perform the album 'Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band’ in celebration of the album's 50th Anniversary at the O2 Academy in Sheffield.
The success of this meant that in 2017 the same group wanted to tackle the seminal masterpiece ‘Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band’ to celebrate it’s 50th anniversary. Knowing the album's special place in musical history the band the band grew to a 30 piece ensemble, adding more brass, strings, woodwind and even a harp.
They have been joined on vocals by Sheffield legends Steve Edwards and Jack Weston, aka Kid Conventional.
This 30 piece behemoth will bring to life the complexity and brilliance of one of the greatest albums ever written twice this year, once at Tramlines festival and then a special show (with a few other Beatles hits thrown in) on November 25th at the 02 Academy Sheffield. The only thing we don’t have are the Scouse accents - this project belongs to Sheffield!
