RAIN covers the Fab Four from their very first Ed Sullivan Show appearance through the Abbey Road album, through the psychedelic late 60s and their long-haired hippie, hard-rocking rooftop days. RAIN is a multi-media, multi-dimensional experience: a fusion of historical footage and hilarious 1960s television commercials lighting up video screens as live cameras zoom in over the audience for close-ups.

For more than two decades, RAIN has distinguished itself by focusing on details, always being faithful to The Beatles with the ultimate goal of delivering a perfect note-for-note performance.  All the music is performed live with no pre-recorded tapes or sequences.

    How are they making their debut in San Jose if they used to play here every year at the fair? Is this a different “Rain” tribute band?

      Really? Didn’t know that…. This one is a touring Broadway production so pretty sure it’s a different band….. but you never know!
