About The Return
The Return got its start back in 1995 when four young friends got together to play their favorite Beatles songs just for the fun of it. That show—which was supposed to be a one time thing–led to another gig until the band found themselves playing on a regular basis. They became fixated on the idea of recreating the early sixties Beatles concert experience from the tiniest detail (John Lennon’s on-stage gum-chewing) to the biggest, most expensive details (using exact replicas of the instruments and gear the Beatles used). While they were learning to comb their moptops just right and finding the right Beatle boots and black suits to wear, they were also learning each song note for note, rhythm for rhythm—getting the signature moves and ‘looks’ of the Fab Four down pat, too. The Return has crafted a truly authentic, entertaining, and very exciting show. And in doing so, the band not only delivers a near perfect reproduction of a live Beatles concert–they capture the very essence of the Beatles themselves. This New Years Eve, The Return will be performing two unique sets (complete with a costume change between sets) featuring Ed Sullivan era material as well as the Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club.
New Year’s Eve Celebration
Once a year, Rams Head On Stage is transformed from a completely seated venue, into a classic speakeasy complete with a coat check, a corner dance floor next to the stage, tables draped in linen, polished silver, and party hats to go around!
