Beatles- John Lennon Celebrity Lookalike impersonator
You won’t believe your eyes…or your ears! He does an exciting and authentic re-creation of John Lennon from his “touring years” (1964-1966) with the Beatles that captures all the thrills Beatle fans have been missing for 35 years. His act goes the extra mile, to include John in his solo years. It relives John as the angry youth, musician, and idealist, through his words and music. Take a “Magical Mystery Tour” through the twenty years of John’s career. You will hear songs from “She Loves You” to “Starting Over”. He has up to six costume changes including the gray collarless suit worn by John at the Washington DC concert in 1964, the black suit worn on the Ed Sullivan Show, Sgt Pepper suit, long haired John in his white suit from Let It Be and Abbey Road, and familiar costumes from his solo career. He has been performing as John Lennon in various Beatle tribute bands for 20 years. He has performed in Atlantic City’s Trump Plaza, the Atlantic City Hilton Casino (which included a reenactment, sponsored by Continental Airlines, of the Beatles landing in Atlantic City) and has performed with such names as Davy Jones of the Monkees, the Shangri-La’s, The Edsels, just to name a few. He performs either with his band or by himself in shows with other superstar impersonators. Through him, John’s music shines on. “Come Together” a Tribute to the Beatles… portrays the Beatles from 1964-1966 the touring years. “Come Together” recreates the early Beatles concerts with identical costumes and equipment. Songs from “I Want to Hold Your Hand” to “I’m Down” played with Vox amps and Rickenbacker guitars made famous by the Beatles. The look and sound is uncanny. If you missed the Beatles in 1964, you must see “Come Together” a Tribute to the Beatles today.
