Beatles cover band returning to Jonesboro Saturday

JONESBORO — Do you want to know a secret?

Well, it’s not really that much of a secret, but Jonesboro officials would like to see news of an upcoming concert at Lee Street Park travel the same way a secret gets around — by word of mouth. They want residents to come together Saturday for an evening of Beatles songs.

The Beatles cover band, The Buggs, will return to the city to entertain residents by taking them back nearly 50 years to a time that seems like yesterday to Baby Boomers. The Buggs performed at the park last year, and their return will close out the city’s 2013 concert series.

The free concert will begin at 7 p.m. in the park, at the corner of Lee and Smith streets. Non-Jonesboro residents are invited to attend as well, and attendees should bring lawn chairs or blankets to sit on during the event.
