Beatles faithful gather at Amherst school

A crowd of about 40 enthusiastic Beatles fans filed into the lunch room at Clark School on Tuesday night to hear the Beatles tribute group Beatle Tracks.

The concert, part of the Recreation Department’s mini-concert summer series, had been scheduled for the Village Green but was driven inside by threatening weather.

It didn’t seem to matter to the crowd – they dug the music and seemed to have a great time.

Beatle Tracks is a Beatles tribute group based in Massachusetts. Members are Ken Sandler, Vince Cavaseno, Joe Lynn, Mark Ristaino, Dave Owen and Steve Bacher.
