The Silver Beatles

Covering many of the hits ‘The Beatles’ had between 1962 and 1970, ‘The Silver Beatles’, present a show with the guarantee that a ‘splendid time will be guaranteed for all...’ 
 
Conjuring all the magical mystery contained within the music of Lennon, McCartney, Harrison and Starr, their specially tailored suits and psychedelic finery bring all the monochrome and colour of the 1960’s to a venue near you. 
 
The long history of ‘The Silver Beatles’ has seen them work with ‘The Quarrymen’ (the skiffle group John founded in the late fifties/early sixties), Allan Williams (The Beatles’ original manager), Pete Best (their original drummer), Alastair Taylor (Brian Epstein’s right hand man) and Cynthia Lennon, who has gone on record to say that ‘The Silver Beatles’ are ‘look alike, sound alike and even think alike –it’s uncanny!’ 
 
Having appeared at Liverpool’s famous ‘ Cavern Club’, headlined the BBC’s ‘Children in Need’ marathon and played to the likes of Madonna, Blur and Robbie Williams at the ‘MTV’ awards in Milan, popular music magazine ‘Mojo’ voted ‘The Silver Beatles’ as ranking second amongst the most popular Beatles tribute bands in the world, an accolade they richly deserve. 
 
Their most recent shows, the ‘Love You’ experience, features an extended suite of Beatles songs patchworked together like that of the acrobatic theatre troupe, ’Cirque Du Soleil’ and has been playing to rapturous response. The Daily Telegraph said, ‘Cover bands are big business these days, but the ‘Silver Beatles’ are clearly a cut above most... ‘, but more importantly, ‘The Beatles Book’, world famous for being the ‘official’ monthly magazine, published a review by Alan Clayson who wrote, ‘...the fab gear winsomeness was flawless. The Silver Beatles captured that same ramshackle grandeur. These boys will go far...’
