The Essential Beatles have a full repertoire of all the Beatles' most famous songs; from early tracks such as Please Please Me and Love Me Do through to Rubber Soul and Revolver classics like Nowhere Man and Paperback Writer and right up to the likes of the seminal Hey Jude. The band will always try to accommodate various song requests and strive to work around the client as much as humanly possible!
The Essential Beatles pride themselves on replicating the Fab 4's onstage image, sparing no expense with their equipment and outfits, the ultimate intention is to recreate the magic of the Beatles in their sixties heyday. All their equipment is vintage (except the PA system of course – that’s too risky!). So authentic are the band that we believe we have the only REAL John Lennon in the entire world…..as that’s his real name! The guys even replicate the personalities of the Beatles, being described by clients as honest, reliable, humorous and VERY entertaining.
This ‘Fab 4’ have worked with artists such as Midge Ure (Live Aid, Ultravox), Tony Visconti (David Bowie / Marc Bolan), Neil Finn (Crowded House) and Mary Hopkin (as produced by Sir Paul McCartney himself!) not to mention Morrissey and Nancy Sinatra, amongst a host of others. No gig is too far or too much trouble for the lads and they’ve recently performed in Portugal, Switzerland and as far away as China! (Although Ringo hated the flight, he wants Jimmy Nichol to do it next time – great bit of Beatles trivia there folks!).
Recent venues include The Excel and QEII Centre’s in London, Birmingham’s NEC, Liverpool’s fabulous Echo Arena, The Cavern club (also Liverpool – but you knew that already!), the old Apple store in Baker Street and even the Abbey Road studios themselves.
Specialising in weddings, parties, corporate events and festivals, The Essential Beatles will liaise with you to ensure you get the very best experience. We welcome ‘would be’ Beatles joining us on stage (always great fun!). Additionally, the group's PA system can be used for personal MP3 players or laptops to cut costs or the band can supply a DJ if preferred.
Great entertainment from the Essential Beatles. One of our guests thought the DJ was playing Beatles tracks before realising we had a live act! They were the fab 2!
Thank you so much for a memorable performance at our wedding. We loved it!
Really great to see a Beatles tribute band who look like they're enjoying themselves and can actually play! Seen a lot of bloated pie eating, balding, boring ones who seem to have enlarged egos out of 'thin hair'. A lot of disappointing ones out there, this lot leave them far far behind, top notch!
Quite simply the most humorous and professional, not to mention authentic, Beatles tribute act I’ve seen here so far
We booked ‘The Essential Beatles' to play at our wedding reception and they were brilliant! They looked and sounded like the real thing with a few costume changes thrown in. Everyone got up and danced all night and all our guests commented on how great they were and still do. All the band members were really friendly and even got the kids up to sing and have a go on the drums. They made our wedding reception and we are so glad they were there to play all our fave Beatles’ tunes all night. Since that night we have been waiting for a special family event so we can have another party and get them back! Thanks guys
The band played at our Gala Dinner, they were fantastic. The whole room were up and dancing by half way through the first song!! Excellent!
