Beatles, Bee Gees, Beach Boys music on tap at Gobin Friday

Sunday, April 8, 2012

Friday, April 13 at 7 p.m., Gobin Memorial United Methodist Church will host the Covered Bridge Country Chorus (CBCC) for a "Really Big Shew."

The group, a women's barbershop chorus from Greencastle, has been singing in the area since 2003 at city functions, nursing homes, Airport Appreciation Days and just about any place that wants music added to their program.

The chorus sings in four-part a capella harmony. This year the CBCC is tuning up for a fun night of old favorites with music from three of the biggest music groups of the late 1960s to the '80s -- The Beatles, The Bee Gees and The Beach Boys.

Beginning with a medley of Beatles' songs, evoking memories will be such favorites as "She Loves You," "Can't Buy Me Love" and "A Hard Day's Night."

From The Bee Gees, the group will perform "Stayin' Alive," as well as a disco medley, before going surfing with The Beach Boys and "Surfin' USA."

The second half of the program will feature more traditional barbershop music, including the songs CBCC will be taking into competition this June.

Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for children age six and younger.

The chorus will also be selling raffle tickets on its "angel," with a raffle to be held in June 2013 when the CBCC will host the Area 4 contest.

Refreshments are included in the ticket price.
