About The Band
“1964” concentrates on only the “touring years” of the Beatles. Since this time period is one of the most well documented (pictures, films, and eye witness accounts) times of the Beatles career, there is much that one can compare. “1964” has accomplished what many other acts could only dream of: an astonishingly accurate re-creation of the energy and the magic of those touring years. Over 20 years of researching and performing have made “1964” masters of their craft. They are hailed by critics and fans alike as the most authentic and endearing Beatles tribute show in the world.
