Gimme Abbey is a tribute concert to celebrate The Beatles and The Rolling Stones
Two bands, The Return and Satisfaction, “come together” for one special Destin event under the stars at Mattie Kelly Cultural Arts Village.
The Mattie Kelly Arts Foundation and Ocean Reef Vacation Rentals and Realty is delighted to present Gimme Abbey, a tribute to the two greatest bands in rock and roll history, on April 24 at the Mattie Kelly Cultural Arts Village. Two nationally acclaimed tribute bands, The Return and Satisfaction, have joined forces for this special tribute that will take you back to the 60’s.
“We are extremely excited to secure this nationally touring program, which also coincides with the 50th anniversary celebration of the Beatles performance on the Ed Sullivan Show,” said Marcia Hull, CEO of the Mattie Kelly Arts Foundation. “We’ve heard from the community they want more live music at the Cultural Arts Village and we’re focused on bringing music that appeals to all ages.”
Hull went on to say “Anyone who came of age during the 60’s remembers watching The Ed Sullivan Show on Feb. 9, 1964 when they got a first look at The Beatles and heard, I Want To Hold Your Hand. Since then many generations have enjoyed a special connection and appreciation for The Beatles.”
The Return embraces Beatlemania and got their start in 1995 as four young friends played their favorite Beatles songs together and have now become one of the most recognized and respected Beatles tribute bands.
Satisfaction is internationally acclaimed as the most authentic cast and production show honoring the Rolling Stones today. They create an authentic portrayal of the original band members’ appearance, sound and mannerism.
Both bands have performed hundreds of concerts around the world. They also have been touted as the closest things to the originals. You will feel like you are in the 60’s watching the Beatles and Stones perform live together in this most awesome Destin event.¬†

Concert fans are welcome to bring their own picnic and wine or beverage of choice or fresh cuisine will be served on-site by local restaurants.
