Classic Albums Live brings together some of the country’s finest musicians to recreate live on stage the exact sounds of the greatest albums of the ’60s and ’70s. Musicians are chosen according to their sound and their fit into a particular niche, be it Bowie, Pink Floyd, The Beatles, or The Rolling Stones. The album might require a sitar player, a children’s choir, a string quartet, or someone to ring the alarm clock. Whatever it takes, the musicians treat these revered albums like a score, the way a symphony orchestra treats Mozart.
Founded in 2003 by Craig Martin, Classic Albums Live has become the ultimate destination for music lovers wanting to hear the greatest albums performed live without all the gimmickry and cheesy impersonations. Relying only on the music, using what Martin refers to as “the world’s best musicians,” Classic Albums Live has defined itself as a mainstay in performing arts centers across North America.
