When fans see a beatles tribute band, they expect to hear the music that the four lads from Liverpool made famous. The musicians who make up these bands are not only skilled, they are also experts in recreating the Fab Four’s look and sound. They often dress in period-appropriate attire and use authentic instruments to evoke the Beatles’ era. They also rehearse weekly, which helps to ensure that their performances are as close to the real thing as possible.
Most tribute bands are formed by rabid fans of the group. However, only a select few can earn a living at their craft. Successful Beatles tribute bands must be able to appeal to both the fans who were lucky enough to see the originals perform, and younger audiences who may not have been born when the Beatles took America by storm. These groups must be able to sing, dance and act like the Beatles, but they must also be able to create an atmosphere that is true to their subject.
While most tribute bands are known for their note-for-note renditions of the Beatles’ hits, not all are equal in terms of musicality and entertainment value. One of the best in the business is Abbey Road, which features tight harmonies and precise musicianship. Their costumes are custom-tailored to replicate the Fab Four’s original look. The group even uses a Liverpudlian dialect and familiar onstage banter. Their show has been ranked higher online than Ain’t Misbehavin’ at the Ahmanson Theatre and a national tour of Hairspray.
Unlike many other Beatles tribute bands that attempt to cover the entire Beatles catalog in a two-hour concert, Studio Two chooses to focus on the club and touring years of the band’s career. This allows them to highlight the most exciting and memorable songs that the Beatles made. This unique approach makes for a fun, high-energy evening.
The members of RAIN are all dedicated to creating an experience that is as close to a true Beatles concert as possible. They have received rave reviews from across the country for their authentic costumes, instruments and harmonies. In addition, the group has performed at some of the world’s most prestigious venues and has been featured on national TV shows. RAIN has also headlined International Beatleweek in Liverpool, England four times.
In addition to the Fab Four’s classic hit tunes, The Parrots play songs that the original Beatles never played live. The result is an unforgettable, awe-inspiring performance that can take audiences back to the height of Beatlemania. Besides being highly entertaining, The Parrots can also play requests from the audience, which is a big plus for their fans. Engineering student Jumpei Shigeru, 22, is a regular at the club and says The Parrots have him hooked on Beatles music.
