Joe Cadora & Jeannine Menger
Sunday, June 10, 2012, 3:00pm
Jam Room - Room #117
This will be a structured jam in which we explore the music of the lads from Liverpool. Bring your favorite Beatles' songs or sing and play from our handouts. Joe Cadora and Jeannine Menger will help out with Beatles chord progressions, which often contain surprising changes, and with John, Paul and George's tight harmonies. Come by and learn why these brilliant songs changed the landscape of popular music forever. Voice, guitar and other instruments welcome.
Joe Cadora has played folk and rock guitar for over forty years after being inspired by the Beatles' music while he was still in grade school. While attending Rutgers University in his native New Jersey, he and his band, Ice Nine, opened for Bruce Springsteen at The Ledge. He has performed with long time Bay Area bar bands, The Mercuries and The Evidence, and the music of the Beatles has always been an important part of his repertoire.
Jeannine Menger has been a fanatical Beatles fan since late 1963 when her older sister introduced her to "She Loves You". The Ed Sullivan show followed soon after and the rest is truly history. Soon after that Jeannine formed a band in grade school that played rock music for two years. She has been a dedicated musician since 1973, specializing in Beatles tunes. She has been in three other bands in her adult life, playing rock and folk-rock. She leads a popular monthly Beatles sing-a-long at the Chit Chat cafe, 'Sing The Beatles'. She comes to the Bay Area from San Diego.
