Call them the Fab Five. Or six. Or sometimes even seven.

Or just call them Trainwreck Theatre.

The band, which has been together in various incarnations for a number of years, has been playing the songs of the Beatles for most of this century.

"We were all inspired to become musicians because of this music," bassist Roger Gillespie said Friday. "We try to recreate as close to the sound of the recordings as possible, using many of the authentic instruments they used."

Gillespie, along with band mates Kurtis Gentile, Barry Hovis, Chris Meyer and David Walsh will appear Saturday night at Hesperia Lake Park as the headlining act following a day of Hesperia Day music celebrations there.

("And sometimes Mark Mancina and Joe Ongie join the band," Gillespie said.)

The band will cover songs from a variety of Beatles albums, which Gillespie says appeals to audiences of all ages, and not just Baby Boomers who grew up with the music.

Trainwreck Theatre will play from 5 to 7:30 p.m. on Saturday.
