Beatles tribute to help save Preston Castle

beatleduoCome together and twist and shout with Because to save Preston Castle. Because — the area’s premier Beatles tribute band — promises a wildly entertaining evening of fun and music at the beautiful Preston Castle Courtyard at the end of Palm Drive, off of Highway 104, on Saturday, June 22.

A Northern California-based band, Because, strives to capture the imagination of both the old and young from the way that it looks and moves to the way the band sings and plays. Because will whisk the audience away to the 1960s, bringing a youthful energy and playfulness that is the sheer essence of The Beatles.

Gates open at 6 p.m. with a no host bar and a tour of the outside farm museum. The show begins at 7 p.m. Snack food and a wide selection of drinks will be available for purchase. No outside alcohol is allowed.

In 1890, the 230 acre parcel of land where the Preston Castle stands was purchased from the Ione Coal & Iron Company for $30 per acre with 100 acres donated. The land was purchased to house the Preston School of Industry, established by the State Legislature as a progressive action toward rehabilitating, rather than simply imprisoning, juvenile offenders.

The Preston School of Industry remained open until 1960 when new facilities for the school were completed. The building remained vacant and fading into disrepair until Sept. 10, 2001 when The Preston Castle Foundation received a 50-year lease for the property. The Preston Castle has also been named a California State Historical Landmark and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Tickets are $25 in advance at prestoncastle.com and are $30 at the door.
