the sound, amazing!
A must see show
for all ages!"
Some 90% of Beatles tribute players/leaders simply calling whomever is available for any given show to "put together" a Beatle line up for your casino, special event, fair or festival. Sometimes the players are meeting for the first time just before your show. Many refer to a "second cast" or a "third cast"….simply a glorified term for subs.
No doubt about it! Not having the same rehearsed members over and over for any given show causes vocal part confusion compromising the quality of vocals and instrumentation. This in turn results in a complete lack of polish for your audience begging the question, do you want a show of "Subs" or a B or C cast? …or…do you want a polished show with the same permanent members used for EACH AND EVERY PERFORMANCE. With Paperback Writer you will always get the same 4 long-standing 8 year members as seen in all of the pictures and all of the videos with no prerecorded vocal tracks used of any kind. Paul McCartney and the Beatles look lean and trim and so does Paperback Writer. Many of the shows fall short of authenticity. Paperback Writer is 100% authentic right down to the left-handed Paul. The result for your show? The absolute tightest sounding and most authentic looking of any and all of the Beatles shows out there. Get the quality you deserve with Paperback Writer.
Always the same tight show, same tight members. Always better detail!

An amazing Northern California weekend February 28th and March 1st 2014.
Friday night February 28th audiences were dazzled and amazed at the return performance of the hit Beatles show Paperback Writer. Executing with perfection huge production numbers such as “A Day In A Life” and “I Am The Walrus”. This show recreates The Beatles with spot on authenticity. Those in attendance, really felt as if it were the actual Beatles from 1964 to 1969 live on stage.
Beginning in the early years with the Ed Sullivan suits, ( and rightly so given the 50th year anniversary this year) the act delivered the look, sound and energy of the greatest rock and roll group of all time. Moments to remember were “Yesterday”, “I Wanna Hold Your Hand”, “All My Lovin” and "A Day In A Life" as the crowd cheered and whistled to no end !
Thanks to all that attended the show at Feather Falls Casino a true good time was had by all! Check the web site for the return of Paperback Writer to Feather Falls casino one of their favorite venues in July.
Saturday night March 1st was the discovery of a true “Gem in the Wilderness” in performing the beautiful 450 seat theater at Crystal Springs Upland (private) High school located just west of Beautiful downtown San Mateo, California. Nestled in low lying hills and no shortage of trees, this school sports an underground gym, a spectacular green campus and boy did they put on a fund raiser to beat all !! In the theme of The Fab Four this private event raised several thousand dollars culminating with the tremendous performance of Paperback Writer live on stage. These fund raiser event planners left “no stone unturned” even surprising the show members with the throw-back vibe reminiscent of the mania surrounding The Beatles invasion of 1964. The show had dozens of screaming girls with a packed house some even making it on stage to touch their favorite Beatle. Not much before the police ( costume perfectly) were on the stage to promptly remove the mania fed girls. Detail, detail and more detail set the mood recreating the 1964 Ed Sullivan show and yes ! Even the Pan Am stewardesses were there straight from the flight deck just off the plane over the Atlantic. Ed Sullivan impersonator Michael Sherman opened the show with his humorous Ed Sullivan with a chuckle often from the audience. When he announced Paperback Writer no sooner did they get into the first few bars of “She Love’s You” did the fans vacate their seats and rush the stage setting off complete mania.
By the end of the show dozens of fans danced the stage overcoming the police. In fact event the policeman could not hold back the urge to let go and get caught up in the moment of Beatlemania dancing themselves to the beat so well created by Paperback Writer. Wow ! What a weekend!!
