Family + community = FABulous

Dance like nobody is watching.
That’s what kids and adults alike were doing Wednesday evening at the kickoff event of the Doylestown Community Sounds of Summer 2011, which featured the band Almost FAB performing songs the Beatles made famous.

It’s hard to go wrong with family, community and Beatles songs, all under a perfect sky. For me, it was the perfect end to a difficult day at work.
I love these kinds of community events, and this one drew a pretty big crowd. It was presented by the Doylestown Community Performing Arts Council in cooperation with Doylestown Township and the borough.
Little kids, whose parents in some cases weren’t even born yet when the Beatles were kicking out hits, literally gravitated toward the stage and the almost-magnetlike attraction of Almost FAB.
And really, did the Beatles ever make a bad song? Hit after hit after hit. And Almost FAB – billed not as a Beatles lookalike band but a group of “FABulous musicians” who bring more than “150 years of combined studying and performing to the stage” – do a great job with the songs.
For the rest of the summer schedule of music, go to
With apologies to the Beatles, for this type of family and community event, I ain’t got nothing but love, babe . . . eight days a week.
