The Weeklings
The Weeklings
“THE WEEKLINGS are America’s most dynamic touring celebration of the music and inspiration of THE BEATLES, performing explosive renditions of Beatles classics, uniquely arranged Beatles nuggets such as "Paperback Writer", "Baby You're a Rich Man" and “I Am the Walrus” plus brilliant Beatles-inspired power-pop originals, like their newest, “In The Moment”. The Weeklings bring The Beatles to life, not through costumes and gimmicks, but through their extraordinary musicianship, exceptional vocals and charming stage presence. “They show their audiences both what The Beatles were, and what they might have been if they were performing today.”

**The Weeklings are annually featured at premier Beatles festival events like Abbey Road on The
River and The Fest for Beatles Fans.
