Kirkland Performance Center and Kirkland Chamber of Commerce present Seattle’s favorite Beatles music experience to celebrate the anniversary of The Beatle’s legendary last performance on the rooftop balcony of the Livengood Alskog building to benefit Northwest Harvest.

BY POPULAR DEMAND – Continuing the annual tradition of blockbuster rooftop performances attended by thousands in Seattle locations, Crème Tangerine, will celebrate the anniversary of The Beatle’s legendary last performance famously known as “the rooftop concert” on the Eastside. This year Crème Tangerine will perform songs from that concert, and more on Saturday, January 30th, 2016 on the rooftop balcony of the Livengood Alskog building (121 3rd Ave, Kirkland, WA) at noon. Crème Tangerine’s performance can be viewed from the Central Way and Lake Washington Blvd (Lake St.) downtown shopping district street level for free. Fans can donate canned food or cash on site to support Northwest Harvest’s mission to distribute food to more than 300 food banks, hot meal programs, and elementary schools across Washington.

Having started in 2009 as a celebration in tribute to the 40th anniversary of the Beatles last concert, Crème Tangerine’s Beatles Rooftop Day, has become a destination each year on that anniversary weekend for northwest Beatles fans to celebrate the Fab Four’s influence on music in the Pacific Northwest. The annual concert event has attracted local and international media attention as well as the endorsement by recording industry legend Ken Mansfield. Mansfield is the former US President of the Beatle’s Apple Records label and was the only American on the roof with the Beatles at that last concert.

“It’s been so cool over the years to see streets packed shoulder to shoulder with people celebrating the music of the Beatles on the last weekend of January – this music truly is a common bond people share together”, states Byron Prather, lead singer of Crème Tangerine. David Alskog lead partner of Livengood Alskog law firm said, “We are honored to be hosting this year’s show in Kirkland! We’re looking forward to showcasing this fun event for free to give people a reason to take a moment to rock out, smile, and have a little fun together on a winter weekend. We hope people will come out and enjoy it all!”

Crème Tangerine is a dynamic five piece band from Seattle that performs the music of The Beatles for thousands each year. Rather than focusing on the personalities or look of the Beatles, Crème Tangerine focuses on performing their beloved music live for all to enjoy. Besides their “Rooftop Concert” shows, their performances have included The Beatles most recognized hits as well as different eras of the Beatles music and “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band”, “the White Album” and “Abbey Road” in their entireties. Their high energy, quality performances appeal to those already familiar with and new to the music of The Beatles.

Praise for Creme Tangerine from Ken Mansfield, former US manager of The Beatles Apple Records

“…After decades on the road working with bands and speaking engagements I have found events shared with Creme Tangerine to be the most enjoyable. I was with the Beatles as their associate on January 30th 1969, but actually had more fun with Creme Tangerine on January 30th, 2009-10 as a friend on the incredible rooftop celebrations in Seattle. In 1969 I was working and in 2009-10 I was sharing. I like the fact that with Creme Tangerine it is about the music and not about them. Professional, dedicated, and purposeful sums it up for me.”

Ken Mansfield (former) US Manager, The Beatle’s Apple Records
