About 1964: A Tribute to the Beatles

1964 was formed in 1984 and consisted of Mark Benson as John Lennon, Gary Grimes as Paul McCartney, and Tom Work as George Harrison. Gary Grimes originally played an excellent Paul McCartney, but sadly passed away in 2010. All members were professional musicians before coming together as 1964. Benson has worked as a skilled luthier, repairing and selling vintage guitars to the likes of the Rolling Stones, ZZ Top, the Doobie Brothers and The Who. Work has freelanced in a barbershop quartet and in musical theatre. Although the members are getting older, their popularity continues to rise. They are dedicated to pleasing their fans as long as they can. The current lineup features Benson, Work, Ricky Vacca as Paul McCartney, and Bobby Potter as Ringo.

1964 reproduces the early Beatles experience as closely as possible. The typical 1964 set sticks to early Beatles music, with the occasional middle Beatles material mixed in. Keys to their successful rendition are body language, speaking voice, musical training, and singing voice. In performance, they don the tight pants, boots, mop haircuts and the right vintage instruments. Needless to say, the band has studied their models to perfection.

While 1964 reaches for an authentic Beatles experience, they deliberately deviate in sound quality and set length. The original Beatles shows were so poorly amplified that it was difficult to hear the music over the screams of fans. The original Beatles also performed an extremely brief set by today's standards – just two sets of thirty minutes each. 1964 originally stuck to the thirty-minute set, but the fans demanded more. They now perform two forty-five minute sets per concert.


Previous Hits

The success of 1964 isn't something you can measure on the charts. Rather, their enduring popularity is due to their very convincing emulation of early Beatles music and the part the Beatles played in the British Invasion. Rolling Stone magazine would hail 1964 as the best ever of Beatles tribute bands.

The tribute band has made numerous television appearances that have cemented their success. Most notably, they appeared on PBS in a special entitled "1964." They have also made appearances on CNN, PM Magazine, Entertainment Tonight, The Nashville Network, and the USA Network.

1964 enjoys huge popularity with the college scene. Campus Activities Today Magazine has honored the group with awards like "Best Contemporary Act" and "Best Major Concert Act." The National Association for Campus Activities would vote 1964 as "Contemporary Music Artists of the Year," and the Canadian Association for Campus Activities would hail the group as "Campus Entertainers of the Year."


Trivia

Tom Work, who plays George Harrison, is surprisingly the only member of 1964 with acting experience – in his previous life he was a community theatre actor. The other members of this tremendous tribute act have come by their seamless impersonations through careful study of the media from the Beatles' early tours.


The 1964: A Tribute to the Beatles Concert Experience

Full of all the early Beatles hallmarks, from the Liverpudlian onstage banter to the boots, suits and mop haircuts, 1964 is the next best way you can experience the Beatles' invasion of America besides building a time machine. With the original Beatles having changed so much and eventually disappearing from the tour scene, 1964 took it upon themselves to expand upon the legendary lo-fi shows put on by the Beatles in their brief and exciting original touring phase. Considered one of the most accurate Beatles tribute performances of all time, 1964 has reproduced the Beatles concert performance so well that Beatles fans who missed the originals can still get a taste of the epic British sensation. Don't miss out on your second chance to hear the world's best Beatles tribute band.
