Aqueous opened with “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” and went on to cover “Magical Mystery Tour,” “Flying,” “Blue Jay Way,” “Eight Days A Week,” “Strawberry Fields Forever,” “For No One,” “Happiness Is A Warm Gun,” “Sgt. Pepper’s Reprise,” “A Day In The Life” and “Hey Jude.” But don’t sleep on the band’s originals, which are filled with interesting signature changes, jaw-dropping composed sections and plenty of jamming.

Check out a stream of “Happiness Is A Warm Gun” > “They’re Calling For You” (Aqueous Original) > “Sgt. Pepper’s Reprise” > “A Day In The Life”:
