From the Knickerbockers to the Smithereens and a thousand tribute bands in between, there’s always been something in the water here in Jersey when it comes to The Beatles; a proprietary feeling that dates back to the first time they touched tarmac on the other side of the Hudson — and today’s edition of Red Bank oRBit has one more sip of that Beatlejuice, courtesy of a fairly Fab collection of veteran Shore musicians.

This weekend sees the second annual Fab Forward Ball fundraiser for the Red Bank Charter School — an event coordinated by long-playing local rocker and RBCS father Jeff MacPherson. It’s a gig that puts an innovative twist (and maybe even a shout) on the old Liverpudlian family recipe. We’ve got the details on the concert.

Then tune into our orbit the rest of this week, for a roundup of things theatrical on local stages, our weekend whirligig of ‘pinionated picks, and even more glittering gleanings from The Orb listings database — only in Red Bank oRBit!
