2013 marks ten years of the White Album Ensemble — and we celebrate this holiday season with our fans right back where it all began, the Rio Theatre in Santa Cruz.
In keeping with the tradition of two shows the nights before New Years Eve, for this set of shows we revisit everyone's first taste of the WAE, the Beatles' "White Album" in its entirety. It's the only double album they made, and an extraordinary piece of Rock and Roll! This performance will be enhanced by Barry Phillips string quartet; the MindOverMatterHorns- Roger Eddy and Brian Stock; former Musicscool student Keyboard ace Will McDougal, the "Honey pies" the lovely and talented Miss Tammi Brown, Alysha Antonino, and other as-yet under wraps surprises!
Monday December 30th — "Player's Choice"

For our second night's show, we offer up (since they've been such good boys and girls for a decade) a "player's choice" night: the group's favorites from various shows we've done, including the post-tour-era albums (Rubber Soul, Revolver, Sgt Pepper's, Magical Mystery Tour, The White Album, Let it Be, Abbey Road, and the Across the Universe soundtrack). For a surprise, two new originals from Dale Ockerman Project's latest CD "What If…?" will be unveiled, which features the White Album Ensemble and have a certain Beatley stamp. (Not surprising after 10 years of fab-research, and having written a few songs for the Doobie Bros.!) Barry Phillips String Quartet will be featured, as well as Will McDougal, stellar vocalists Alysha Antonino, and Tammi Brown; and even more surprises!
