CENTERPORT, NY (March 30, 2017) – The Liverpool Shuffle, a popular Long Island Beatles tribute band, will perform on Sunday, April 9, from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. in the Vanderbilt Reichert Planetarium.

Tickets: adult $20 (on-line, at Vanderbilt website), or $25 at the door. Children 5-15 pay $15 (on-line or at the door). Children under 5 are free.

The band, which has performed six previous concerts at the Vanderbilt, will be accompanied by a montage on the planetarium dome of 1960s photos and news clips, psychedelic imagery, and other pop-cultural moments.
Joe Ref (Refano), who formed the group in 2003, describes its act as “authentic, live Beatles music performed by professional Beatlemaniacs.”
The four musician-singers are veterans of the New York music scene with a combined 125 years of experience.
“The Beatles created the greatest popular music in history,” Refano said, “and we play it just the way it is.”

The Suffolk County Vanderbilt Museum

The Suffolk County Vanderbilt Museum — a unique combination of mansion, marine and natural history museum, planetarium and park — is dedicated to the education and enjoyment of the people of Long Island and beyond. This mission is achieved through the thoughtful preservation, interpretation and enhancement of the Eagle’s Nest estate as an informal educational facility. Many exhibition and program themes focus upon Long Island’s Gold Coast Era. Programs also concentrate on William K. Vanderbilt II’s desire that his marine, natural history and ethnographic collections promote appreciation and understanding of the marvelous diversity of life, other cultures, and scientific knowledge. Planetarium programming, more specifically, focuses on scientific knowledge and seeks to capture Mr. Vanderbilt’s sense of adventure and exploration through state-of-the-art entertainment.
