Young Hines as John Lennon Young Hines as John Lennon

Young Hines brings to the Beatle world his exceptional musical and vocal skills which quickly gained him the status as "The Guy!"  Young has an unlimited vocal range, beautiful falsetto and rich timbre for which John Lennon was so famous.  Young's vocal are so realistic that he and his former band mates from "The Return" were invited to appear on the ABC network television show, Good Morning America. Young has the vocal ability to belt out screamers like Twist & Shout and Mr. Moonlight, switch to ballads such as, In My Life & Norwegian Wood and then use his uncanny falsetto in songs like Day in the Life & Baby You’re a Rich Man.  Young’s stunning portrayal of John Lennon will surely please even the most die-hard Beatles fans.

 

 

 

 

 


Eric Michaels as Paul McCartney Eric Michaels as Paul McCartney

Eric Michaels and Paul McCartney have several things in common, but perhaps the most striking similarity is that they are both incredibly versatile vocalists. Eric has the power to scream out a raucous rocker like "I Saw Her Standing There" and also the finesse to sweetly sing a tender ballad such as "Yesterday". He is also a multitalented instrumentalist; not only does he play a left-handed HÖfner bass like McCartney, he is also proficient on piano and guitar. Eric’s physical resemblance to McCartney combined with his vocal and instrumental talents produce an amazing performance every time!

 

 

 

 

 

 


Doug Couture as George Harrison Doug Couture as George Harrison

Doug Couture has found his true calling in the music industry, paying tribute to the "quiet one," George Harrison. As a teenager, Doug spent countless hours of every day playing and singing along to Beatles records, trying to emulate the signature riffs and 3-part harmonies that made The Beatles one of the most influential groups of all time. Doug has spent the last eight years touring the country with several different tribute bands and has received rave reviews for his performance in "BeatleMania." His understanding of George’s vocal & guitar style has earned him a reputation as one of the "Best!"   Doug's accurate portrayal of George even led him to a consulting job for the making of the "Beatles to A Tee" guitar instructional DVD/Video. As a Beatle’s fan, Doug confides that he has lovingly studied and carefully recreated George’s persona on stage.

 

 

 

 


Tom Grable as Ringo Starr Tom Gable as Ringo Starr

Tom Gable mirrors the very nature of Ringo Starr. Not only does Tom accurately duplicate Ringo’s voice in fun loving songs like Yellow Submarine and With A Little Help From My Friends, he completely replicates the wild and unorthodox drumming style for which Starr is known. The owner of The Cavern Club in Liverpool was quoted as saying "Tom’s voice is the closest to Ringo's that I have ever heard!"

And it's not part of their act but a true reflection of their own self."
