The Beatles began their career in 1960 in Liverpool, England. They were a modest success in England but really took off when they brought their music to America in early 1964. As a part of the "British Invasion," The Beatles' music took America by storm. A term that best described this time in their career was "Beatlemania."
This year, the Sho-Me Marching Band will be performing the music of The Beatles. We will feature music from the mid to late 1960s including the hits Magical Mystery Tour, Lady Madonna, Eleanor Rigby, Yesterday and Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. Below you will find MP3's of the show tunes - please be aware that some elements of the pieces will change before August. For example, all drum and pit parts will be completely rewritten and pieces may be shortened or lengthened to fit our band's needs. When the parts are finished, we will upload them to this page so you can begin practicing them.
