TRIBUTE group The Beatels will play at Blacktown Workers Club on September 6, with their fabulous re-creation of The Beatles live on stage.

The internationally acclaimed act that has wowed audiences around the world will perform Beatles classics from Please Please Me through to Let It Be.

The Beatels use a variety of costumes and generally perform a two-set show: a black-and-white set (1962-1965) and a psychedelic set (1966-1970).

They have the biggest collection of authentic Beatles instruments of any cover band in the country, and that is one of the reasons they can capture the sound of The Beatles so well.

Besides the extensive range of equipment, the quality of the musicianship sets this group apart from most other tribute acts.

With lush, live, three-part harmonies and note-for-note performances of Beatles recordings, this group has to be heard to be believed.

Bruce Coble bears a striking resemblance to John Lennon and first started impersonating Lennon in 1990.

Steve Shipley plays Paul McCartney, Marcus Phelan is George Harrison and Neil Rankin takes the part of Ringo Starr.

All band members are accomplished musicians.

In the past few years, they have been regular visitors to Singapore and Malaysia, with other shows in Papua New Guinea, Vietnam, and The Cavern Club in Liverpool — the very place where Beatlemania began.

■ Blacktown Workers Club on Saturday, September 6, at 8pm.

■ Tickets: Members $7.50, visitors $10.50. Book at
