Visitors to the Auburn Heights Invitational will get a chance to explore so much more than just the amazing automobiles on display around Auburn Heights.

Playing Beatles songs from every era of the Fab Four’s career, Almost FAB creates a fun atmosphere while rocking your night away with the songs to which you know all the words and can sing along. Almost FAB is NOT a look-alike band, a dress-up in Sgt. Pepper’s suits band, an act-alike band or a simulation of the Beatles. Bring a picnic and a blanket or chair and relax while enjoying a wide variety of music at DSP FREE concerts – park entry fee may be required. For more info, visit Almost Fab-Beatles Tribute Band
