The music of Motown, The Beatles, and the ’70s have one common link-The Rewinders. Since the group was founded in 2001, they have performed “record copies” of hits from the ’60s and ’70s for thousands of people. Band members were hand-picked by Jeffrey A. Reed, music director of Orchestra Kentucky, in preparation for the Bowling Green orchestra’s first concert of Beatles music. According to Reed, “I asked around until I found out who was the best drummer, bass player, and so forth, in Bowling Green, Kentucky. When I called them to join the group, some of them couldn’t quite understand the concept of an orchestra playing the music of The Beatles. They were afraid I was going for a Boston-pops type of sound.” Lest you think they play elevator music, think again. In addition to performing with Orchestra Kentucky and other orchestras to sell-out crowds, the group has played as the headliner in the finale of the nationally-renowned Piccolo Spoleto Festival for five years. The Rewinders can be booked for orchestra appearances by contacting Orchestra Kentucky office at 270.846.2426
