It features nonstop hits from early decade bubble gum classics to the explosive late ‘60s soul sound.
Beehive is the ultimate celebration of l960s female empowerment featuring such timeless classics as “My Boyfriend’s Back,” “Be My Baby,” “Son of a Preacher Man,” and “Me and Bobby McGee.” Paying tribute to performers such as Lesley Gore, The Shirelles, Brenda Lee, Tina Turner, The Supremes, Aretha Franklin and Janis Joplin, this irresistible revue will fly you back in time to experience firsthand the music that thrilled a generation.
