Description: Wonderous Stories will celebrate the 40th anniversary of George Harrison's "Concert for Bangladesh" with an all-star big band performance of the album in its entirety. The show was performed three times previously at the famous B.B. King Blues Club in Times Square with capacity crowds. In those years special guests have included members and former members of the Alan Parsons Project, Vanilla Fudge, The Hooters, Zebra, Tower of Power, Ted Nugent, Dire Straits, and much more. We have also had people who were behind the scenes at the original 1971 Bangladesh show and special guest promoter Sid Bernstein (Beatles at Shea). Plans are already in the works to make this one the most memorable concerts of them all with very special guests to be announced and added to the show as we get closer. We already have many of the performers confirmed from the bands mentioned above and are ready to add some notable national performers! Sit back and enjoy the massive Wall of Sound as we present the "Concert for Bangladesh" plus extra songs performed by our guests who made them famous! Moneys from this show will be donated to the cancer society in the memory of George Harrison, who died of cancer in 2002. Wonderous Stories has become the band that people say can play anything. They are no strangers to playing complete renditions of classic albums. The band consists of Kenny Forgione, Tommy Williams, Kevin McCann, Ricky Martinez, and Mark Bonder. They all sing and play multiple instruments. For three years in a row at B.B. King Blues Club they did a massive recreation of George Harrison's "Concert for Bangladesh." They have also done entire albums and album sides by The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Genesis, Yes, Paul McCartney, and more.
