Maybe they were Manchester City fans who were on holiday and could not afford to fly home to watch their team win the league.

Ah yes, but what it the ripoff Ringo was playing drums with one hand whilst using his other hand to manipulate his organ ? teacher_mode

Just as a hint, Scholar, John sang and played guitar, Paul sang and played Bass, George was a guitarist who also sang, and Ringo played the Drums. American English could never have had a fourth member who played keyboard if they were a tribute band, that is, unless you can't count! nananana

I saw a decent Beatles tribute band in the Fake Cavern in Liverpool (the original has long gone). At the end of the set, they took off their costumes - including Beatles wigs and revealed themselves to be a bunch of 18 year old college kids. Amazing. I think they were called "The Mersey Beatles"

Out staff night out is often at the local racecourse and for the party nights they have various tribute bands who perform on various stages rotating through the acts as the night wears on. Once people are in the party mood they will get up and dance and sing along with "Tina Turner" or "Abba" look-e-likies and have good fun.

e.g. http://www.ayr-racecoursegallery.co.uk/main.php?g2_itemId=11859 (I am not in any of these photos btw)

I would never bother to watch a tribute band unless it was that kind of occasion.

Some of the cable TV channels in the US are "public access" channels i.e. non-commerical channels where individuals or groups may send out a program. One of them in my area has the label "Religious Access."

You can imagine my surprise when I tuned in early one morning to hear Beatles music recorded from a live performance at the high school of my town. I was pleased with how close they sounded to the Beatles. I only caught perhaps the last four numbers in the performance. One of them sung and played like John, one sung and sounded like Paul. I didn't hear lead singing by the stand-ins for George or Ringo. There was a fourth person in American English, the fellow who played the keyboard parts.

Here is the cover page for their site

And here is the site.

The players stayed in character between numbers and while making comments (maintaining their Liverpool accents, for example).

Have you listened to tribute bands? Did you enjoy them?
