Some have argued that their music and the Beatles phenomenon sowed the seeds that would eventually bring down the Soviet Union.  In this show, we bring you the music that rocked the Kremlin, and rocked the whole world.

Mach Shau: The Beatles in Hamburg. Before they were big stars, the Beatles went over to Hamburg, Germany five times over a three year period from 1960 to 1962, playing hundreds of shows in the not so nice clubs of the red light district, where the German patrons loved high energy rock and roll, almost punk rock twenty years before Punk. One of the early club owners would tell them "Mach shau", make a show, meaning get wild and crazy, which is what we plan to do, well as much as our old bones let us, covering the songs they played on their last trip to the Star Club in December 1962, other early Beatles hits and sixties rock. No better place to do this particular show than the Carleton Tavern!

Maxwell's Bistro
Jonesey presents "Twist and Shout" - 9:00
340 Elgin Street
Ottawa, Ontario
Can
Price: $5

Jonesey presents "Twist and Shout, a tribute to The Beatles second Album". On February 3, 1964, Capitol Records of Canada released the Beatles second album here in Canada, which they called Twist and Shout. It actually contained mostly the same songs as the Beatles' first album in the UK, called Please Please Me, released almost a year earlier. But Beatlemania had exploded since then, the Beatles were to appear on the Ed Sullivan show on February 9 and everyone was scrambling to put everything Beatles out there. This is another uniquely Canadian release, with unique cover art and liner notes. This is where we learned that George enjoyed egg and chips and that Ringo's ambition was to own a string of hair salons. Charming!

Jonesey and the GreyTones, which will include, in addition to Jonesey (Paul Johanis), Jim Devlin on guitar and vocals, Myk Hewitt on bass and Michel Cloutier on drums, will also be playing Beatles tunes from the Beatlemania! album and other songs featured on the Beatles' appearances on the Ed Sullivan show, 50 years ago...
