September 15, 1964: the night the Beatles played Cleveland Public Auditorium, a concert sponsored by WHK. It was also the first night Jane Scott of The Plain Dealer covered a rock concert.

September 15, 2014: the 50th anniversary commemoration of both momentous events, with the Beatles tribute band 1964 playing the entire set list from the concert at House of Blues Cleveland.
Michael Stanley opens with an acoustic set of Beatles songs, and the band Beau Coup will play their song "Jane."  Plus, rare footage of the Beatles first concert from 50 years ago will be shown.

There is a Beatles exhibit at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum, and a statue of Jane. Meredith Rutledge Borger, Associate Curator at the Rock Hall discusses the Beatles in this interview.

Proceeds from the 50th Anniversary Celebration of Jane Scott and the Beatles will help fund a documentary about the legendary music writer.
