The Beatles Meet Elvis
On the evening of August 27, 1965, rock 'n' roll was exploding. The Beatles released four new albums including Help, Elvis celebrated his 30th birthday, he recorded the soundtrack and filmed his 19th motion picture, and on one historic night, the Fab Four went to see the King of Rock 'n' Roll at his Beverly Hills mansion.
This meeting gave way to an impromptu jam session where there were no recordings or photographs of this epic event. With the exception of the five extremely talented musicians, no one was there to experience the magic of this historical event ... until now!
Ben Klein and The Beatles Experience will each perform individual hits from both Elvis and The Fab Four throughout the night but when they combine their talents during the jam session set in Elvis’ living room, the comradery of these exceptionally talented young men morphs into a Jersey Boys style show that blends amazing music with hilarious improv.
Welcome to a night of great performances by Ben Klein as Elvis Presley and The Beatles Experience. It’s a night you won’t want to miss!

The Beatles Experience
The Beatles Experience was born in 2011 in Buenos Aires, Argentina. In 2014 they won the “battle of bands” in the 14th Latin America Beatleweek, organized by The Cavern Club Buenos Aires. This prestigious contest gathers the best South American Beatle tributes every year. Two of the band’s members have been awarded “Best Guitar player” for three consecutive years (2012, 2013, 2014) and “Best Drummer” in 2013, respectively.
Even though The Beatles Experience is very respectful of the Beatles roots in each song they play, its members clearly put their stamp on them. This passion is what makes them sound more original and fresh when they play live, taking you on a trip down memory lane with all your favorite Beatles tunes.
