It's hard to believe 50 years ago this Sunday the Beatles debuted in America on the Ed Sullivan Show.
The Quad Cities had their own celebration of that anniversary, by inviting a Beatles tribute band to Bettendorf High School.
Their show is almost flawless.
"I've been accused of playing Beatles records on stage by people that think we're playing the Beatles records on stage, so they must sound pretty much like the Beatles," said Louise Harrison, Beatle George Harrison's sister.
"He was my kid brother... he was a great guy, I mean everybody who has seen him know that he was kind, gentle," she said.
Louise started the Liverpool Legends more than a decade ago.
Marty Scott, plays her brother, George.
"Now she's just kind of like my grandmother. You know she's really hands on like, right now she's in the other room sewing buttons on our Beatles suit cause it fell off," said Scott.
The show at Bettendorf High School is special in a couple ways.
It comes right before the 50th anniversary of Beatlemania starting, when the four boys from Liverpool appeared on Ed Sullivan.
But the show also is bringing all kinds of people, together.
"The Beatles for some reason...it just...it works," said Scott.
The audience spans generations. Both young and old are here to see the Liverpool Legends.
"The Beatles are such a unique thing, because it's still cool today, it still sounds good on the radio and you know all the kids still love them and the parents love them, and even the grandparents love them," said Scott.
The Liverpool Legends, playing with Bettendorf High School students, are already digging the music.
"This one has character, and like you can relate to it a lot of times. And so, maybe it's people just connecting to their songs," said junior Libby Weaver.
A trait the songs have that Marty Scott said, is extremely important.
"We're not trying to save the world, but we're going into high schools and we're putting on these big shows with the bands and the choirs and the orchestras, too, and we're teaching them about the Beatles," said Scott.
