Not just another Beatles show, why is Paperback Writer so much better then the others ?

Well it is a fact that Beatle bands are common place these days. However, 90% of Beatles tribute players/leaders out there simply call whomever is available for any given show to "put together" a Beatle line up for your casino, special event, fair or festival. Sometimes the players are meeting for the first time just before your show. Many refer to a "second cast" or a "third cast"….simply a glorified term for subs resulting in a performance that is neither tight nor polished and mediocre at best. Even the big shows with a national big names that have been around for anywhere from 20 to 40 years rarely contain any of the original members if any at all. What does this mean to you ?  You are simply buying "a name" with a bunch of subs or alternate casts.

No doubt about it! Not having the same rehearsed members over and over for any given show causes vocal part confusion compromising the quality of vocals, instrumentation and presentation. This in turn results in a complete lack of polish for your audience begging the question, do you want a show of "Subs",  a "B"  or" C" cast ? …or…do you want a polished show with the same 4 permanent members used for each and every performance.  Factored collectively with Paperback Writer's attention to detail and amazing vocal sound alike ability, is the reason why Paperback Writer is so much better then the others ! With Paperback Writer, one will always get the same 4 long-standing 8 year members as seen in all of the pictures and all of the  videos.  In addition, many of the shows fall short of authenticity lacking both detail  and vocal blend-sound alike ability. Paperback Writer has  achieved the tightest blend by having the same members performing and singing together for over 900 shows now.  Paperback Writer is authentic right down to the left-handed Paul.  Let's face it , shows with right handed Paul's just don't look right. Paul McCartney was not right handed. The result for your show? The absolute tightest sounding and most authentic sounding and the best presentation of any and all of the Beatles shows out there. Get the quality you deserve with Paperback Writer.  Why settle  for a  local average Beatle act ? get the show that headlines for 3 major cruise lines, theaters, fairs, Disneyland and Disney entertainment (a known entity for top talent) in addition to casinos all across the country.  Have doubts about our show ? take a look at our packed schedule ! That says it all.  Join in the hundreds of clients that have used, and still use Paperback Writer for their theater, fair, casino, corporate event or cruise ship showroom.

Always the same tight show, same tight members. Always better detail!

An Our dearest friend Carmen Martinez  

Every now and then someone can come along in one's life and have a profound impact in many ways. When I first met Carmen Martinez, her smile and radiant glow was the key to her kind heart and loving spirit. This I felt from the very first meeting. Carmen assisted Paperback Writer particularly in the early days with procuring shows and was one of the most dedicated fans we have.  I know that I speak for all of the members of Paperback Writer when I say that when Carmen arrived anywhere, the room shined that much brighter.

On April 26th 2014 at 9:30 PM Carmen left us for a better place. She will be greatly missed. We each now carry a sense emptiness in our hearts over the loss of this wonderful person.   She was a loving mother and  loving wife. Carmen  and husband Tony were  Beatles/Paperback Writer  fans and very dear friends. The Rose in this picture is our reminder that Carmen will continue to touch us all in spirit and in loving memory. We love you Carmen- Glenn, Chris, Gene and Richard- Paperback Writer.
