    by Ry Esquina

    Over the labor day weekend, more then 50 bands came to the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center at National Harbor to play at the world's largest Beatles-inspired music festival.

    The festival had its start in 2002 in Cleveland, Ohio, then moved to Louisville, Ky., in 2005. This year marks the first year for the festival in Washington D.C.

    The festival hosts many different types of tribute bands; some bands look, sound, and act like the Beatles. Other bands play Beatles music accurately, but do not dress or act as Beatles. Some bands celebrate the music of Lennon & McCartney and George Harrison without trying to reproduce the Beatles' sound. On site was a large collection of Beatles' memorabilia from various vendors and collectors, including a Beatles inspired Harley Davidson.

    TBD Segment Producer Hillary Esquina talked to three local bands who played at the festival, and brings us a look into Abbey Road On The River.
