BeatleCuse Headliners

2018 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee – DENNY LAINE

We are all excited for our 2016 co-headliner’s return to CNY as a newly anointed Hall of Famer, being a co-founder of THE MOODY BLUES!  Denny will bring back his high energy set of hits  from his days in PAUL McCARTNEY & WINGS (“Band On The Run”, “Live & Let Die”, “Time To Hide”), as well as The Magnificent Moodies’ #1 classic, “Go Now”.

Featuring three original members – drummer Burleigh Drummond, keyboardist Chris North and bassist Joe Puerta, plus the soulful sounds of their long-time vocalist, Ken Stacey (Michael Jackson & Elton John tour band singer, American Idol vocal mentor for Season 10 Scotty McCreary), keyboardist/vocalist Mary Harris and guitarist Doug Jackson.   In the past 2 years, Ambrosia has headlined the Abbey Road On The River festival for Beatles fans, performing their knockout versions of “Eleanor Rigby”, “Magical Mystery Tour” and more Fab Four faves!  Without a doubt, their big hits like “How Much I Feel”, “Biggest Part of Me”, “Holding On To Yesterday”, “Nice Nice, Very Nice” and “You’re The Only Woman” will be the perfect American music mix tape for our July 4th Weekend!

ELLIOT LURIE – Lead singer from Looking Glass (“Brandy”)

How could we have a festival along the mighty, historic Lake Ontario, and not perform an evergreen about a sailor and his lady?  Please welcome Elliot Lurie, who will sing “Brandy, You’re A Fine Girl”, his self-penned 70’s staple recently featured in the movie Guardians Of The Galaxy 2 for the BeatleCuse crowd.  To hear this song done live by its writer is worth price of admission alone!
