Frank Muffin is performing the entire Beatles’ record Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band Saturday evening at Lafayette Theater. The proceeds of the night benefit Therapeion Therapeutic Riding Center in Brookston.  Therapeion provides "equine assisted programs for persons with disabilities, children who have been victims of violence or abuse, veterans with disabilities, and for youth learning life skills." WBAA's John Clare spoke to Hans and Brittany Rees from Frank Muffin about the event, including having 22 musicians on stage, and how the idea came together.
