Travel back to a simpler time, with familiar ballads, old friendships, record players, and, of course, no Yoko Ono.

Classic cover band Rewind will have you thinking the Beatles never broke up.

"We play songs just like the record," Jim Guidici said.

And you don't even need a time machine.

"The band itself was formed about 15 years ago, primarily as a sixties tribute band: Beatles, Stones and British Invasion bands ... then, over the last five years, we've evolved ... keeping our roots in the music of the '60s, but we've expanded our playlist to include the classic artists of the '70s and '80s," he said. Think Springsteen and Robert Palmer.

The quintet doesn't just play tribute to the greats, it pays tribute to the times, the '60s, '70s and '80s.

"There was a truth behind the energy of the music and a truth behind the lyrics that were valid for the '60s, and they still hold those truths today, about peace and love," Guidici said. "It's hard to imagine that anybody could sit on their hands and not dance when they hear 'Satisfaction' or 'I Want to Hold Your Hand.'"

It speaks to a different time with different priorities.

"Every Saturday morning, the radio stations would release a new song," he said. "It was something that was anticipated all during the week. You'd hear that there was going to be a new Rolling Stones song released on Saturday or that there was a new Beatles song and you'd wait, and Saturday morning at 10, they'd go, 'Here you go.'"

It was during that era that Guidici got his first band together and learned to play his first song, "I Feel Fine," by The Beatles, a song he still plays with Rewind.

It's in that vein of nostalgia that Guidici and the rest of Rewind are honored to be a part of the PB Scott's Reunion Show.

"For us, walking into the Canyons Restaurant and looking on the wall and seeing all of the great artists who defined what PB Scott's was and to be a part of it is just a fantastic experience for us," he said. "We played last year, and we had a tremendous and enthusiastic crowd, and we're thrilled to be back."
