I started playing bass to do one thing...play along with Beatles records. If I do say so myself I've become pretty well-versed at McCartney's lines. Since then I've managed to try put together a few efforts at a tribute band. I don't know if I'll ever have the right mix to actually gig as the Beatles. Unfortunately you gotta find three other (at least) like minded people who just happen to look and play like them, plus have the commitment. I've tried Craigslist but It's tough to find the right people. Any one out there booking gigs as MCartney? I'd love to hear from those handling tribute shows. How did your group get formed? What kind of shows/venues do you perform at? Do you find it easier to specialize? (i.e. early Beatles, psychedelic Beatles, rooftop Beatles?) What advice do you have for someone trying to start a Beatles tribute?
