The Olympic Cellars Summer Concert Series is one of the highlights of the summer out here on the Olympic Peninsula. One of our favorite weekends is when Crème Tangerine visits from Seattle and plays two shows, Friday, and Saturday.
We were not allowed to hold concerts in 2020, but 2021 looks promising, and we have begun planning. About a month ago I spoke with Jeff Lockhart, the drummer and manager of Crème Tangerine. He had some exciting news to share.
They have changed the band’s name to Good Day Sunshine!
And Byron Prather is back as lead singer!
And Olympic Cellars has the honor of premiering their new music video “Come Together”!
Of course, we will host Good Day Sunshine and Long Live Rock* in August 2021. Details are coming soon.
Our mission at Olympic Cellars is to Create Community and we are excited to premier this video for Good Day Sunshine. So, everyone “Come Together” and let us sing and dance again. You can start with the livestreamed concert on December 3rd. All the information about the band, video and concert are below.
Good Day Sunshine is a dynamic five piece band from Seattle who together (all Crème Tangerine alumni) have performed the music of The Beatles for over a decade and for thousands each year. Rather than focusing on the personalities or look of The Beatles, Good Day Sunshine focuses on performing their beloved music live for all to enjoy.
Together the members of Good Day Sunshine have performed The Beatles most recognized hits as well as different eras of the Beatles music and “Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band”, “The White Album”, “Abbey Road” , and “The Rooftop Concert” in their entireties.
NEW PREMIERE VIDEO “COME TOGETHER”: You can check out Good Day Sunshine’s new video “Come Together” being premiered here for the first time now exclusively to Olympic Cellars friends first!
