Join us for American English, the world’s best Beatles Tribute band! The show begins with the early years of Ed Sullivan and includes classic Beatles favorites such as She Loves You, Twist and Shout, and I Want To Hold Your Hand.  Then we move into the psychedelic era of Sgt. Pepper and finally, The White Album with songs like Let It Be, and Abbey Road. The show is a visual spectacle in full costume with amazing artistry and vocals, performed by one of the best Beatles tribute bands in the nation.

American English captures the very essence of John, Paul, George, and Ringo! Each musician captures the vocal pitch of their matching counterpart in the legendary band, The Beatles. You’ll experience moving renditions of all their greatest hits, including Hey Jude, Something, Let It Be, and more. Don’t miss this opportunity to see this iconic tribute band in your own back yard, under the stars and dance and sing all evening long!


“They are without doubt the world’s premier Beatles Tribute band. And a great bunch of lads…just like the Beatles were.  It amazes me how each individual member of American English is so like his counterpart in The Beatles. In looks, performance, and personality. And it’s not part of their act but a true reflection of their own self.”
– The late Sam Leach, the original promoter of the Beatles, and author of “Birth of the Beatles”

“These guys are more than a band, they’re a Broadway show!” – Eric Burdon of “The Animals”

“American English is the best Beatles act since The Beatles!!!” – Dick Biondi, legendary rock n’ roll DJ who introduced the Beatles at the Hollywood Bowl and Comiskey Park

“The best Beatle band on the planet!” – Newsweek
