Beatlemania is alive and well, and one thing is for sure… Paul is NOT dead! The Beatles’ music is as pervasive now as it ever was here in the Las Vegas entertainment market. To coin a phrase from the Beatles themselves, their music is “here, there, and everywhere,” thanks in part to Station Casinos for showcasing the musical talents of The Fab at their various “Valley” properties, including Santa Fe Station, Sunset Station, and Red Rock Casino Resort.

Station Casinos has carefully orchestrated an intense fan frenzy reminiscent of the groundswell that was created in the early 60s by four mop-topped lads from a little place called Liverpool. Today’s version, for the sake of conversation and this blog penning, will be heretofore known as: FABMANIA! (Clearly, we here at Destination Fabulous have no shame!)

You say yes, I say no
You say stop, and I say go, go, go
Oh no
You say goodbye, and I say hello
Hello, hello
I don’t know why you say goodbye, I say hello
Hello, hello
I don’t know why you say goodbye, I say hello

The Fab of Las Vegas has been celebrating the music of The Beatles since their first hello in ’95. They’re not your father’s Beatles cover band with wigs and boots. They are the in-depth sonic exploration of the entire Beatles catalog, from early mop-top rocking pop through the microcosmic, multi-dimensional, psychedelic phenomenon that was and is The Beatles magical musical experience. With over 400 songs in their playlist, from top pop hits you know and love all the way through the deep tracks you will never hear played live anywhere else, they’ll keep you twisting and shouting down the long and winding road of eternal greatness that The Beatles music is and always will be.

However, it doesn’t stop there. The solo works of Lennon, Macca, Harrison, and Starr are also highlighted and interspersed throughout the evening’s three-hour performance. In fact, you’ll even be treated to the music of Wings (“At the Speed of Sound”) and a seminal favorite of mine from the album “Band On the Run”… Jet! (I thought the major was a lady suffragette, Jet! Ooh Jet! Ooh).

The mere mention of Wings conjures up one of my favorite jokes from yesteryear addressing the idiocy of those days’ musically challenged youth and the irony of the line “Daddy, is it true Paul McCartney was in a band before Wings?”

Don’t just take my word. The Fab has been called “the best sounding Beatles band in the world” by Dennis Mitchell, host of the nationally syndicated “Breakfast with the Beatles” radio show, and Vince Neil of Mötley Crüe called them “amazing.” If you don’t like the show don’t go up on the roof, because that’s how bands end!

Meet the Fab Four: A Destination Fabulous Couture Event

Destination Fabulous, a Las Vegas DMC, set out to create our version of “Beatlemania” with an event that falls under our ever-impressive Couture Events portfolio known as Meet the Fab Four. “Fabmania” is a term we use to describe the intense fan frenzy directed toward the British rock band during the early years of their success that you and your guests will experience at this event.

Your fabulous top-tier Fab Four event experience begins at The Mirage Hotel & Casino on the Las Vegas Strip as you and your guests enjoy a spectacular performance of Cirque de Soleil’s “The Beatles Love” show. Then you and your guests are invited to an exclusive afterparty featuring an optional post-show “meet and greet” with select cast members of the aforementioned Love show (based on availability).

This Mystical Mystery Tour post-show party begins as you and your guests walk down the red carpet past a gauntlet of flashbulb-popping paparazzi before entering our Yellow Submersible. Your senses take in a kaleidoscope of sights, sounds, and the multi-colored psychedelic décor that can only be described as “a real trip.” Brightly illuminated highboy tables dot the room and white furniture groupings with glowing end tables, lava lamps, and lighted bean bag chairs add to the sensory stimulation. Huge posters and historic photos of the Fab Four adorn the walls as sixties go-go dancers rock to the beat of the group’s unforgettable songbook of fabulous hits. Fab Four lookalikes and outrageously clad atmosphere models mingle with guests, affording plenty of photo op and selfie moments.

Colorfully costumed servers offer tray-passed hors d’oeuvres, and there’s also a lavish buffet with carving station featuring a British-inspired menu of bangers and mash, fish and chips, shepherd’s pie, Yorkshire pudding, and Beef Wellington. Additionally, multiple bar stations pour a variety of beverages, including top-shelf liquors, Guinness beers, Irish whiskey, and the event’s signature “Beatlejuice” cocktail.

Signature Cocktail: BEATLEJUICE

  • 1/2 oz. vodka
  • 1/2 oz. cranberry juice
  • 1/2 oz. Midori
  • 1/2 oz. blue curacao
  • 1/2 oz. raspberry schnapps
  • Splash Rose’s Lime Juice
  • 1 pineapple stick
  • 1 cherry

Shake very well with ice.
Strain into tall Collins glass over rocks.
Garnish with pineapple stick and cherry.

The highlight of our musically-themed Las Vegas event is when The Fab takes the stage to artfully perform the unmistakable sounds of the world’s most influential musical foursome. Go ahead and sing along (“It’s easy if you try”) as we celebrate the most beloved rock band of all time.

(Special note: The Meet the Fab Four Las Vegas event can be produced at other Las Vegas-area venues by eliminating the top-tier Cirque de Soleil’s “The Beatles Love” show and meet-and-greet component at The Mirage as outlined above.)

So, if you are ready to “Imagine” a different and unique Las Vegas event that will have your guests remembering the soundtrack of their “Yesterdays,” then all you’ll need is “a little help from your friends” at Destination Fabulous, Las Vegas’ premier destination management and event production company. A splendid time is guaranteed for all!

Because “We love you…” (yeah, yeah – you know the rest!)

And in the end… there is the music,
Belinda
