We usually celebrate Memorial Day weekend in southern Indiana jamming to Beatles’ songs. That’s because Jeffersonville has been home for Abbey Road on the River, five days filled with peace, love and rock n’ roll.
Until we can all be together at the festival again, enjoy this throwback video from the 2019 festival.
Memories of 2019
The 2019 festival looked back 50 years to 1969. That was the year The Beatles' Abbey Road album was released. Memorable songs like Let It Be, Something, Come Together and Here Comes the Sun entered the pop music scene for the first time that year. It was also the year thousands gathered in New York for the Woodstock Music Festival and The Who released its rock opera, "Tommy."
Some of Abbey Road on the River's favorite bands honored that historic year. Classicstone and Juke Box Beatles played tribute to the Abbey Road album. The band Magic Bus commemorated Woodstock with a tribute concert, and LBB Experience paid homage to Crosby Stills & Nash. Classicstone also played a tribute to Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody.
