The WAE is renowned for the sound of recreating Beatles Music live, particularly the later period when the group ceased to tour. While many Beatles songs such as “Michelle”, or “Blackbird” were “Unplugged”- that is- acoustic instruments and vocals, the WAE has for many years done concerts at Kuumbwa that are performed on acoustic piano, and acoustic guitars, even doing versions of more electric, rock songs. The Kuumbwa Jazz center is a comfortable, intimate venue that features food, and wine, an excellent Yamaha grand piano, and state of the art sound. “This wonderful local group is the next best thing to hearing the Beatles perform these albums live (which they never did…)”
— UCSC music professor Fred Lieberman “…musically, they were tighter than a hangman’s noose… an excellent performance…” — Metro Santa Cruz...
