'Been coming to Tribfest for 4 years now, these guys were fantastic, was awaiting their performance in the V.I.P tent, I've seen a few Beatles tribute bands in theatres before, so kinda knew what to expect, but didn't expect what I saw and heard from these Four guys, no twee little head boppin show from these lads it was full on stadium Beatles just like the live concert films, it was all there the Rickenbackers the drums the suits the boots and the screams, the audience went nuts, best band of the weekend for me, can't wait to catch them again.'

As a man of a "certain age" I have vivid memories of the lunchtime sessions in the Cavern from 1962. I worked in Liverpool city centre and went to the Cavern regularly during the week. I used to enjoy not only The Beatles, but Johnny Sandon and the Remo Four, The Big Three, Gerry and The Pacemakers, The Fourmost and many other groups. (They weren't "bands" in those days). Having seen The Cavernites perform, I can safely say that they recreate the music from that era perfectly, much more so than any other group. They fill this old man with nostalgia, for their performances are authentic and capture the mood and magic in a way unlike any other. I can thoroughly recommend them and I thank them for their dedication in capturing the music of my youth".

You have to remember that The Beatles were a dance band, a rock and roll outfit, they played the clubs and dance halls all over Merseyside then Hamburg then the clubs grew into stadiums but they stayed the same Four lads who liked to rock and roll, the closest I've seen for their style and the way they are personally is The Beatle Band - they have that vibrancy and passion.
