The Weeklings are a unique celebration of the music, inspiration, and legacy of The Beatles. While performing and recording explosive renditions of The Beatles’ discography and Top 40 classics, The Weeklings often add new, churning rhythms and the occasional “howling harmonica” (NJ Arts).
The band plays on Sirius XM’s The Beatles Channel, The Loft, and Little Steven’s Underground Garage. Their most popular renditions are of classics including “Paperback Writer,” “Baby You’re a Rich Man,” “I Am the Walrus,” “The Word,” and “I’ve Just Seen A Face.”
“Though The Weeklings will always, probably, be associated with The Beatles — they have recorded many Beatles songs and regularly play them in concert — with each album, they provide more evidence that they should be considered a great power-pop band.”
– NJ Arts
Don’t miss your chance to experience these uniquely electrifying renditions of The Beatles’ classics and more at SOPAC!
