Bay Street Theater in Sag Harbor will host a live performance of The Beatles’ “White Album” by local favorites The Moondogs on Saturday, December 11, at 8 p.m.

This is The Moondogs first time performing at the theater since the cancellation of its March 2020 concert, bringing with them the entirety of the “The White Album.”

Having been faithfully covering the music of The Beatles for decades, The Moondogs in their current lineup performed their first live concert at Bay Street Theater in 2014 to mark the 50th anniversary of The Beatles’ 1964 arrival in the United States. Since that celebrated performance, the band’s special, limited-edition, two-night shows have grown into a well-anticipated annual event.

In 2017, the group returned to perform “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” and then again in 2018 to perform the music of George Harrison in celebration of his 75th birthday. In 2019, the band was back at Bay Street to perform both “Let It Be” and “Abbey Road.” Now, Beatles fanatics will have the chance to hear The Moondogs’ recreation of the wide-ranging masterpiece known as “The White Album.”

The Moondogs is made up of keyboardist Fred Gilde, guitarist Mick Hargreaves, keyboardist Dan Koontz, bassist Joe Lauro, guitarist Michael Schiano, guitarist Jeff Levitt, and drummer Howard Silverman. In keeping with the style of The Beatles’ legendary harmonies, many of the band members contribute as vocalists.

Tickets are on sale now for $30 ($35 day of the show) at baystreet.org or 631-725-9500. All attendees must show proof of vaccination and will be required to wear a mask throughout the entire show.
