Beatlemania lives on and lands in Cochrane on Mar. 9 at the Cochrane Lions Event Centre.

Calgary's premiere Beatles cover band "All You Need is Love" will feature all the hits enjoyed by fans that span several generations. All the music of the Fab Four is performed live on authentic Beatles instruments. There are three costume changes from their Mop Top debut to psychedelic to hippie periods. They also have a keyboard player, sort of a Billy Preston, who fills in parts of the music.

Nathan Loo, who performs as Paul McCartney, says they welcome people to come dressed fun in their favourite 60s fashions and the band encourages the crowd to sing and clap along to the songs.

"People come out and they dress in mods or if they feel like being groovy, or if they want look like one of The Beatles, you know, it's just all pure for fun," says Loo. "We spread positive music and for a couple of hours, people can forget about all their problems and the things going on in this world."

He says a wide range of ages come to their shows, thanks to how Beatles music has been passed down from generation to generation. Even now, The Beatles retain a high profile.

"Another song has just been released, so they're still active, whereas other bands have been here, and they've had their time. But you know, The Beatles seem to have staying power because people still want to listen to them."

The show marks the first major community event being hosted by the Seniors on the Bow (SOTB) says Penelope Archer, who was recently named SOTB's first executive director.

"This event is a fundraiser for the seniors programs, but we are trying to encourage intergenerational gathering. We have seniors that are members that are going to be bringing their kids to this event, but they've got to be 18 plus."

"We're encouraging people to dress up in their best 60s or 70s attire if they like, but it's totally optional," she says. "We just want people to come and have a good time."

The Beatles had 11 consecutive number one albums starting in 1963. Although not the last recorded, Let It Be was the last album released in 1970. There's been other compilations since with the occasion new song, including Now and Then, released last November, which plays a major role in the recently released movie Argylle.

This is also the first time SOTB have made tickets available online. They can also be purchased at SOTB, located upstairs in the SLS Centre.

Doors open at 6 p.m. and the event runs from 7 to 11 p.m. Tickets are $25. It's an 18-plus event, and there's a cash bar.
