The Norwich Beatles celebrates the music of The Beatles in a very versatile, professional show! It is ideal for music venues, social clubs, theatres, holiday centres, out door events/festivals, themed bars, arts centres, corporate functions, parties and weddings. The band has previous experience and feels at home in all of the above environments.

Previous customers have booked the band for events where a Sixties theme and atmosphere has been required, where a variety of music has been required (remember The Beatles played a range of styles during their career) and where organisers have wished to attract a big crowd (after all The Beatles were and still are the biggest band on the planet!)

Subject to availability clients can book the band all the year round. The fee does vary depending on the time of the year and the location of the performance but The Norwich Beatles pride themselves on being very competitive in this specialised market.


Performance

A regular show runs to 2 x 45 min. sets (although it can run up to 2 hours and be tailored to the occasion).

The set is usually divided into “Cavern/Hamburg Era” for Set 1 and “The Beatlemania Years” for Set 2.

The act boasts four very talented and experienced musicians.

The band takes the stage with all the relevant outfits including Beatle boots, waistcoats, shirts and ties for the first set and the classic grey suits for the second set.

The band DO NOT wear mop-top wigs and try to talk with Liverpool accents. Emphasis is on the music, atmosphere and performance not impersonations.

The music is all re-created using authentic instruments of the Sixties including: Rickenbacker and Gretsch guitars, a Hofner-style violin bass and the Ludwig style “Ringo” drum kit.

Audience participation is a key element to the show therefore parts of the set are structured around this.

Just like The Beatles, The Norwich Beatles delivers high energy to the music as well as fun and spontaneity.

Because a large portion of the show is dedicated to the very roots of The Beatles career a lot of Rock 'n' Roll classics are included. Chuck Berry, Little Richard and Carl Perkins tunes are all featured in the “Cavern / Hamburg” set which attracts a much wider audience. This makes the band extremely unique in their field.


Technical

Customers can hire the band alone or an entirely self-contained show. The full show package includes:

HK Actor 2.5K P.A system + monitoring
Allen & Heath WZ 16:2DX mixing desk
All relevant mics for a fully mixed sound
Lighting (Par 56 floods + controller)
Backdrop
Sound engineer when required

This system is designed for up to medium sized clubs, theatres etc.


Promotion and Advertising

All necessary posters, flyers, photographs and CDs are available on request for anyone wishing to promote the show once a booking has been made.

Members of the band have been featured on BBC Radio/TV, The Independent newspaper and on various regional radio shows but are always seeking new opportunities to promote the act.
