Paperback Writer — The Beatles Experience

Saturday, September 2

Paperback Writer is a masterful replication of The Beatles look and sound, from the early days of “The Ed Sullivan Show” through the colorful “Sgt. Pepper Lonely Hearts Club Band” years and on to the rooftops of “Let It Be” performed with spot-on vocals and instrumentation.

The band even tackles complex and difficult production numbers such as “A Day In A Life,” “Strawberry Fields,” “Tomorrow Never Knows,” “I Am The Walrus” and many more.
