hosted by Joe Cadora & Jeannine Menger
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 Jeanine 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".
Th Ed Sullivan show followed soon after an 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 comes to the Bay Area from San Diego. The love
you take is equal to the love you make.
