The Beatles cover band Revolver will bring some of the biggest hits of rock and roll to Bountiful City Park on July 27 at 7 p.m. Though the group is careful not to call themselves a tribute band – they don’t dress in costume – they work hard to keep the spirit of the Fab Four alive.
“We’re just Beatles nerds and love playing the music,” said Dave Busk, a member of the group. “We’ve always dreamed of being able to play Beatles music all night.”
The group is more familiar to Davis County audiences as Get Back, the name it used for previous performances in both Bountiful and Layton. After some copyright claims from a Tennessee man, however, they changed the band name.
“If we kept using the name, he threatened to sue us for all the money we’d made under that name,” said Busk.
No matter what they call themselves, however, the music hasn’t changed.
“There was a pretty good-sized crowd last time they played, and everyone asked if they’d be back,” said Richard Watson, who organizes the concerts. “Besides, you can’t go wrong with Beatles music.”
