Newtown Live, a new monthly music series at the Newtown Theatre, will kick off on Friday, October 12 at 8 PM with covers of popular songs by The Beatles.
Three local musicians (Matt Dorsey, Greg McGarvey, and Will Rhodin) will perform separately, bringing their unique styles to some of the best-loved tunes by the Fab Four.
150 general admission tickets are available online and can be purchased anytime between now and October 12. If you purchase tickets online, just show us your ticket at the door when you arrive at the theatre. Seating is still first-come, first-served.
We’ll also offer 150 tickets at the door, which can be purchased inside at the box office. We recommend arriving early—tickets and seating are first-come, first-served.
Originally from Tennessee, Matt Dorsey has a family line and a history of music rooting from the Carter Family (June Carter) and has been a solo artist and in numerous bands over his years as a musician traveling the country.
Matt moved to Newtown in 2011 where he currently resides with his wife Camille and two boys.
Greg McGarvey is a singer, songwriter, and guitarist. Greg first performed publicly at the age of 18 in Bristol and started writing his own material by twenty-four, inspired by such acts as The Everly Brothers, The Beatles, Neil Young, R.E.M., Robyn Hitchcock, Lucinda Williams, and Patti Smith. Greg sang his first original song at J.B. Kline & Son Gallery in Lambertville, New Jersey.
In 2018, Greg will release his first album. Count The Colors (For Marcella) is a tribute to his late, great girlfriend, one of the earliest and strongest supporters of his songwriting.
Will Rhodin lives in Newtown and has been playing guitar, writing songs and playing in bands for most of his adult life. His music has been featured on local radio stations in Philadelphia and Princeton. Will records in his basement studio in Newtown as well as at Cambridge Sound Studios in Philadelphia. He has performed (and been sound man) at local venues and events including Newtown Welcome Day and National Record Store Day for many years. Will appeared at Kenn Kweder’s Bob Dylan Birthday Bash at Ardmore Music Hall in both 2017 and 2018. He has been a huge Beatles fan since 1966, when his older brother sent the LP “Revolver” in the mail!
