The Bears, New Bern’s favorite oldies band, return to Taberna Country Club Saturday evening, October 22.
Remember the songs you danced to in high school and college? The Bears will take you back in time with Doo Wop harmonies, British Invasion beats, and Golden Age Rock & Roll that will have you dancing, tapping your feet, singing along, and shouting for more. The Monster Mash will be a Graveyard Smash!

The Bears’ “way back machine” takes you on a sentimental journey through the best songs of the last sixty years, served up with harmony, hot licks, and a great sense of fun. In the immortal words of the Go-Go-Gophers, “Whoopee, doopie, We have fun!”
