When one hears the name Yellow Dubmarine, he or she is immediately taken back to classic rock of the sixties and one of the most popular bands of all time.

Paul McCartney and John Lennon were fortunate enough to have lived through their glory days and still be alive to witness all of the fruits of their labor, which include an overwhelming amount of covers. Although they are in fierce competition with many other tribute bands, Yellow Dubmarine has taken a very unique approach to their idolization of the Beatles.

The sixties were a very busy decade in the world of music. While members of the Beatles were rehearsing, practicing and performing in Liverpool, a new sound called Reggae was being born in Kingston, Jamaica. Nearly 40 years later, the two very different sounds consolidated and formed Yellow Dubmarine.

The cover band has revolutionized The Beatles’ music with their various renditions of The Beatles’ classics. The band’s addition to the original composition of The Beatles’ music–primarily vocals, guitars, and drums–include an entire horn section and even a female vocalist.

On September 30, the band released the album, “Abbey Dub,” and they will be performing at the Westcott Theater on November 9 to promote it. This band should be lauded for their innovation in taking classic rock and manipulating it into an entirely different genre of music, illustrating how music is in fact universal.
