Masterton musos will put the music of The Beatles back in the spotlight at the second Harley's Lounge entertainment event at Harlequin Theatre tomorrow night.

Longtime Wairarapa entertainer Pat McKenna launched the novel show last month with a line-up of musicians from the district covering their favourite Dylan songs at Harley's Lounge: Shelter from the Storm event.

He said the inaugural lounge show was "a big success" and the focus tomorrow night for guest musicians will be The Beatles under the billing Harley's Lounge: A Hard Day's Night.

Wairarapa musos who helped kick off the Dylan evening in March had included Nick Wilsden, Elton Halford, Bob Copper-Grundy, Kate Marshall and Steve Trotman.

Renditions will again be acoustic at the Beatles show with a microphone available and players seated in a semi-circle onstage.

McKenna was looking to make Harley's Lounge a regular event, he said, with allcomers welcome although guest musicians must have some performance experience.

Harley's Lounge: A Hard Day's Night will play from 7.30pm tomorrow night and tickets will cost $15. All proceeds will go to Harlequin Theatre. Tea, coffee and cold drinks will be available and tickets can be bought at Pat's Books next door to the Regent 3 Cinemas.
