THE BAND MEMBERS
BeaT - together with friends IS AN ENSEMBLE OF PERFORMERS EACH WITH DECADES OF EXPERIENCE PERFORMING MUSIC WHO HAVE ALL COME TOGETHER TO PAY HONOR TO THE GREATEST BAND OF ALL TIME, THE LEGENDARY BEATLES.
the BeaT is a brand new show review concept where the musicians not only play live all the songs they perform, including record-like vocal harmonies, but their show includes telling some of the back stories of the songs while videos are being viewed by the audience of each song they perform on the big screen behind the band. They call this "Info-tainment" to share how these songs were created. Many songs the band performs "live" where never done by the Beatles live outside of the Abbey Road Studios becaused the technology did not exist then for live shows.
