Fernando Perdomo and the Beethose Beatles Tribute Band Raise Money for Love Thy Neighbor

South Florida has an all-star Beatles tribute band. Bet you didn't know that.

The Beethose consists of local musical stalwarts Jim Camacho, Chris Alvy, Jordan Welch, Chris Price, and Fernando Perdomo. This Fab "Five" is playing a special benefit show at Stache on Saturday, January 3, for Arnold Abbott and his Love Thy Neighbor homeless charity group. Abbot was twice cited and ordered to appear in court recently for feeding Fort Lauderdale's homeless - in defiance of new, controversial regulations requiring that anyone hosting mass feedings in outdoor public spaces provide portable toilets and adhere to other restrictions.

County Grind caught up with erstwhile Miamian, much in-demand musician, producer, and Beethose co-founder Perdomo to chat about the Beatles's White Album (which will be performed in its entirety at the show), tribute band co-founder Jim Camacho, and life at his new home in the San Fernando Valley.
