Denny Laine performing The Beatles' 'Abbey Road'

Denny Laine

Denny Laine of the Moody Blues and Wings presents a complete performance of the Beatles' legendary Abbey Road album. The show also includes additional Beatles classics as well as other songs recorded at Abbey Road Studios from the likes of The Zombies, Manfred Mann, Pink Floyd, Gerry and the Pacemakers, Stealer's Wheel, The Hollies, and more. Of course Denny Laine plays his own hits in the show as well-so expect the Moody Blues #1 hit "Go Now" and Wings smashes such as "Time to Hide", "Live and Let Die", and "Band on the Run".

Denny Laine recorded at Abbey Road regularly, including countless sessions with Paul McCartney and Wings. "Live and Let Die", the Wings classic and title track from the James Bond Film, was recorded there with a 40 piece orchestra conducted by George Martin. Martin produced the effort and Denny has fond memories of recording with one of music's best known producers. "The Fool on the Hill" was being recorded at Abbey Road on one of Denny's early visits to see his pal Paul McCartney. Wings' Abbey Road sessions included work on Red Rose Speedway, Band on the Run, Wings at the Speed of Sound, London Town, and Back to the Egg.

Forward Motion's music and performances capture the qualities of music that move people. Steeped in the traditions of funk and soul, their sound is instantly recognizable yet entirely new. Influenced by his jazz and rock backgrounds, singer, songwriter and pianist Alex Godiksen has developed a style that is at once both lyrical and soul-driven. Lead guitarist Andy Sorenson and drummer Jon Stoltzfus are childhood friends from Philadelphia who share a love of classic funk and modern jazz. Guitarist John Brackett has come back to Connecticut after spending time absorbing the classic Americana sounds of blues and country around Nashville, Tennessee. Bassist Adam "Coffee" Clark, is the newest member of the band and is also versed in trombone and euphonium at a professional level. While the influences are diverse, they are also at the root of Forward Motion's ability to create a sound that can instantly connect with the audience.
