Those ‘‘Lads from Liverpool”, John, Paul, George and Ringo are back!

‘‘1964 – The Tribute,” an award-winning Beatles recreation, will hit Frederick for one night only at 8 p.m. Friday at the Weinberg Center for the Arts, 20 W. Patrick St., Frederick.

‘‘1964” has performed throughout the world, including to a sold out crowd at Carnegie Hall. ‘‘1964” recreates an early ‘60s live Beatles concert, with period instruments, clothing, hair styles, and on-stage banter.

Years of researching the Fab Four has made the members of ‘‘1964” masters of their craft. Beatles boots, vintage costumes and equipment, on-stage mannerisms and speaking voices, and the unmistakable harmonies make ‘‘1964” the most accurate and fun Beatles tribute to date.

‘‘1964” has been featured on such nationally televised programs as Entertainment Tonight, PM Magazine, CNN, the USA Network and the Nashville Network and has toured around the world performing at major concert venues, festivals, colleges, corporate events, and conventions. Highlights include the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta and Philharmonic Hall in Liverpool, England.

The group was voted ‘‘Best Major Concert Act” and ‘‘Best Contemporary Act” by the readers of Campus Activities Today magazine and were also voted ‘‘Contemporary Music Artists of the Year” by the National Association for Campus Activities and ‘‘Campus Entertainers of the Year” by the Canadian Association for Campus Activities.

Tickets are $20-$30. Box Office hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday.
