If you believe in yesterday or have had a hard day's night, then the Averitt Center for the Arts invites you to get your ticket to ride and relive Beatlemania on Saturday.

Yesterday and Today is billed as a Beatles tribute performance unlike any other. Striving for an atmosphere of sincerity and nostalgia, the McGuigan brothers have created a Beatles experience while paying homage to one of the most cherished and influential bands of the 20th century.

The McGuigan brothers, along with accompanying musicians, have been performing their unique spin on the Beatles tribute band since 2007.

What makes them stand out? No wigs. No accents. Just great music sung in tight harmony the way it was meant to be.

The brothers began the show to honor their late father, William McGuigan, who instilled in them their love of the Beatles' music. They now share what the Beatles mean to them with fans all over the country, while at the same time incorporating what the Beatles mean to their fans. The band has shows booked out as far in advance as April 2015.

Local sponsors expressed their sentiments regarding the show.

"We love the Averitt Center and, coincidentally, the Beatles," said Roger Doty, financial advisor in charge at Wells Fargo Advisors. "We are really looking forward to a fun show - how can it not be? The Beatles have the most incredible collection of music ever. I can't imagine anyone naming the best 10 songs ever recorded and not have several Beatles songs on their list."

"The Averitt Center is an integral aspect of our community, and we are honored to be included in such a unique and enriching program," added Billy Hickman of Dabbs, Hickman, Hill & Cannon LLP. "The Beatles were an iconic aspect of history, and we are excited to share their music with our community."

Fans can expect a lively show with renditions of some of the most beloved songs of all time. The Averitt Center expects a full house, so you are encouraged to get your tickets soon. The show is scheduled to begin at 7:30 p.m. Saturday.

Tickets are $30 for adults and $28 for adult members of the Averitt Center. Youth tickets cost $10. To reserve your ticket, call the Averitt Center for the Arts at (912) 212-2787 during box office hours, or purchase online at Box office hours are Tuesday through Friday from noon to 5:30 p.m.
