YONKERS, N.Y. -- Beatles fans young and old at Yonkers' Cross County were teleported back through the 1960s and 70s on Wednesday 16 to see one of their famed live performances -- courtesy of hit tribute band Strawberry Fields. 

The fully costumed band played many of The Beatles' greatest hits, including "A Hard Day's Night," "Slow Down," "She Loves You" and more.

They began with hits from The Beatles first four albums, complete with mop top hair, black suits and thin ties.

Then for the Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band album, they changed into all of the costumes and jackets featured on the album cover.

They ended with the long hair and free spirit of the 1970s, playing music from The Beatles (better known as The White Album), Abbey Road, and Let it Be.

Strawberry Fields has performed for audiences of all ages for more than a decade and has shared the stage with featured guests from the Broadway cast of Beatlemania.

Their website reads: "Most of us never got to see The Beatles in-person because we either couldn't afford to buy tickets, or were just too young to stay out past 8 p.m., but we were able to cling to an old album cover or photograph, hoping one day to catch a real glimpse of the Fab Four. Well, today, "Strawberry Fields" is here, a look-alike, sound-alike Beatles tribute, dedicated to bringing you, the audience, as close to a real Beatles concert as you can get."
