White Album Xmas
has become a tradition - a way to keep Portland weird during the holiday season. The NowHere Band - a full 15-piece Beatles orchestra plays the White Album in its entirety, while the jugglers, aerialists, clowns and acrobats of the Rose City Circus present feats of remarkable strength, focus and dexterity. Guaranteed to blow your mind - every time.  This year's show is a covid-safe mashup of brand new circus acts with band footage and recordings from 2017, delivered directly to your living room - keeping the tradition alive!

Available ON DEMAND.  All who purchase a ticket will have access to the show until November 1, 2021.

Tickets are being offered on a sliding scale, from $20 - $100, with a special super cheap discount ticket offered for those who are struggling financially. If you don't see an amount that you want to contribute, you may buy more than one ticket.  Please contribute what you can, and thanks for the support!

The NowHere Band (pronounced “nowhere”) is collection of musicians and friends who gather a couple times a year to recreate the experience of hearing the Beatles’ music performed in a live setting. Unlike other ongoing Beatles “tribute bands” the NowHere Band, there is no attempt for anyone to be a particular Beatle (no one is designated as “Paul, John, George, or Ringo”). Instead, the vocal duties and instrumental duties are separated, thus creating an 8-piece ensemble. In addition to the vocals, guitars, keys, bass, and drums there are 3 strings (cello, viola, and violin) and 5 horns (trumpet, sax, clarinet, and trombone), and (when necessary) harp, tabla, and sitar. Nearly all of the music that the Beatles recorded after 1966 was never performed by them live. The NowHere Band attempts to recreate the “what if” the Beatles ever got to reunite or perform their music live with all the bells and whistles.

The nucleus of the project has also performed many kinds of music under different names, mostly one-offs. The concept of the “band for one night” (hence “Now Here” and such) is the brainchild of band leader and vocalist John Averill, who together with keyboardist Carl Tietze (aka Solovox) have been pulling off musical shenanigans for 20 years, from the dirt of Burning Man to accompanying ballets in performing arts centers, and numerous barns, clubs and warehouses in-between. The other core members of the NowHere Band have each been in the project anywhere from 15-17 years, including Sarah King (vocals) Jason Wells (vocals and guitar), Ryan Moore (drums), Arthur Parker (bass), Chet Lyster (guitar), and David Langenes (guitar).

The band is a true family of friends who love to play together, and when it comes to performing the Beatles’ music (which they consider an honor), the modus operandi is “accuracy with feeling."

Rose City Circus - Portland's best circus and variety performers - bring a whole new set of tricks and antics to this year's White Album proceedings.
Featured performers include Leapin' Louie Lichtenstein, A-WOL Dance Collective, Jon Dutch, Tera "Supernova" Zarra, Tyler Spades, Circus Luminesence, Curtis Carlyle and many more!
