Queen of the Beatniks features great songs of the 60s from standards to psychedelics. The show is a trip through the changing landscape of music in the 1960s through familiar songs from vocalists like Lulu, Dusty Springfield, Brenda Lee, Cher and unique arrangements of classics like “I’ve Been Loving You Too Long”, “I Know You, Rider”, “Til the Real Thing Comes Along”, and “High Flyin’ Bird." Expect to hear beatnik-influenced drum solos, fuzzed out guitar gymnastics, and improvised lyrics generated by suggestions from the crowd. Drummer Tommy Perkinson holds down the rhythms for the band which includes Meredith DiMenna on vocals, bassist Ben Rubin (Jackie Greene), guitarist Emil Halas, and keyboardist Jon Loyd (Cordovas). Bring your own beret.
