The Polish Muslims have an option for those wanting to do something active to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Beatles' first appearance on "The Ed Sullivan Show."
While CBS will be airing the all-star "The Night That Changed America: A Grammy Salute to the Beatles" that night -- with performances by Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Katy Perry, Maroon5, Eurythmics and others -- the polka parody group will be on stage at Paycheck's Lounge, 2932 Caniff, Hamtramck, playing the songs the Beatles played that night in 1964 -- including "All My Loving", "Till There Was You," "She Loves You," "I Saw Her Standing There" and "I Want to Hold Your Hand." Radio personality Bob Koski will serve as the Ed Sullivan-imitating host for the show, and the Muslims plan to be on stage at 8 p.m., the same time the Sullivan show started that night in 1964.
The Redones will open the show with some Beatles covers of their own starting at 7 p.m. Admission is $5. Call 313-874-0909 or visit www.paychecksloung.com.
