ABOUT: When El Campanil Theatre decided to start streaming live events to support their ongoing fundraising efforts, the same question hovered over everyone’s heads: Who’s the first artist going to be?

“We wanted all of these artists to be friends of the organization,” says Theatre Manager Joel Roster, “so when we thought about all of the performers who have been close to us and to the community, the first name that popped in our heads was unanimous.”

Drew Harrison, frontman of the infamous Beatles tribute band The Sun Kings and a solo virtuoso in his own right, was the first choice for Roster, Executive Director Rick Carraher, and Programming Director Steven Shore.

“He’s performed here countless times,” says Carraher. “I can’t think of a more fitting way to break into this new medium than with such a respected and beloved artist.”

Harrison is honored to be the first person to be showcased in El Campanil’s new streaming series. “I am honored to be asked to be the debut performer at one of my favorite venues,” says an elated Harrison. “I enjoy the theatre and the folks that run it. The room sounds great and the experience is always top-notch for the performer and the patron. It’s always a highlight for me to return to the ECT stage.”

The concert itself, “Beatles & More”, is exactly what it sounds like—an hour-long solo concert featuring Harrison’s favorite Beatles songs, plus a few other favorites peppered within. Patrons who purchase tickets will be given a special link to watch the private concert on the company’s website.

Tickets are available right now for the “Live From El Campanil” series on the theatre’s website at www.elcampaniltheatre.com.
