In celebration of the iconic record’s 50th anniversary, A Tribute to the Beatles’ White Album features Christopher Cross, Todd Rundgren, Micky Dolenz, Jason Scheff, and Joey Molland performing their greatest hits along with songs from the album. Joey Curatolo, musical director of RAIN: A Tribute to the Beatles, will direct.
Rundgren is a multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter known for his diverse range of styles as a solo artist and as a member of the band Utopia. His best-known songs include “Hello It’s Me” and “Bang the Drum All Day.”
Cross, winner of five Grammy Awards, is best known for his singles “Sailing” and “Arthur’s Theme (Best That You Can Do),” both of which peaked at no. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. “Arthur’s Theme” also won the Oscar for best original song in 1981.
Dolenz was one of four actors selected to join the Monkees in 1965. The band’s debut single, “Last Train to Clarksville,” with Dolenz on vocals, rocketed swiftly to no. 1. The Monkees went on to win two Emmys, and spawned a feature film and a rock band that toured for decades.
Scheff is a vocalist and bassist who was part of the band Chicago (1985–2016). Scheff took over for Peter Cetera before Chicago 18 (1986). In addition to performing the band’s classic material, Scheff composed many original Chicago classics, including “What Kind of Man Would I Be?” in 1989.
Molland, an English guitarist and composer best known for being a founding member of the band Badfinger, also has worked as a studio and tour guitarist for artists such as George Harrison, Bob Dylan, Peter Frampton, and 10,000 Maniacs.
