Cavenaugh Chevrolet’s Rock n’ Roll Hwy Stage

Headlining the Main Stage this year, the Liverpool Legends are four talented musicians and actors who were hand-picked by Louise Harrison – sister of the late George Harrison of The Beatles. Louise’s involvement with Liverpool Legends makes them the only Beatles Tribute band in the world with a close, direct biological link to the original Fab Four! “Liverpool Legends Beatles Tribute Band present the very best portrayal of The Beatles that I have every seen!” says Harrison.

Riverbilly, Sonny Burgess and The Legendary Pacers, and Comedian Keith Terry will also perform on the Cavenaugh Chevrolet’s Rock n’ Roll Hwy Stage.
