Would the Beatles Tweet?

I would wager The Beatles would have a publicist on board the team tweeting, snapchatting, and instagramming away, Paul McCartney seems active on social media. Ask them yourself (well at least ask the fellows who look and sound a lot like them) “Hey Jude, The Tribute” take their characters seriously and will answer any and all questions as if they are the real John, Paul, Ringo and George. These guys look and sound just like the fab four and emulate them live. This is your chance to enjoy a live version of a Beatles Concert, up close and personal in Long Lake, NY Adirondacks, USA.

The Town of Long Lake announces Hey Jude The Tribute in concert on Saturday, March 5, 2016 at 7:30pm at the Long Lake Town Hall located at 1204 Main Street, NYS Route 30 in Long Lake, NY. Hey Jude the will perform a live concert that is a virtual musical history tour through the entire ten year career of The Beatles.

Debbie Harry/Madonna Musical Disaster Dissection Comes to Long Lake NY Adirondacks
