[September 02, 2014]  DECATUR - Millikin University's Kirkland Fine Arts Center will kick off its 2014-2015 Performing Arts Series with Beatles Tribute Band 'American English' on Friday, Sept. 5, 2014 at 7:30 p.m.

American English is simply the best Beatles tribute story of our time. At the inception of the band, they were voted "number one" by thousands of Beatle fans as winners of sound-a-like contests at Beatlefest® for three consecutive years. They have also won Illinois Entertainer of the Year and have been voted "Best Tribute Band" three of the last four years by their fans in the Chicagoland area.

American English's demand here and abroad, coupled with their spectacular fan base, has made them one of the most sought after shows in theatres worldwide.

Come celebrate with the band that is recognized by Sam Leach, the original Beatles promoter who has said: "They are without doubt the world's premier Beatle Tribute Band, and a great bunch of lads, just like the Beatles were."
