"Thank you for an outstanding show last night! To recreate the whole of Abbey Road note for note is an exceptional achievement and you did it with excellent musicality, style and professionalism. My son and I would have stayed and listened all night! Loved your choice of hits in the second half Looking forward to your “Let It Be” show next year and then the solo years! Well done again. Absolute magic!"

Julian Whittaker, Director of Music, Crypt School, Gloucester, 8th September 2019 (ABBEY ROAD 50th Anniversary Concert at Stroud Subscription Rooms)

"WOW WHAT A NIGHT! You really made Chew Valley Lake Sailing Club rock on Saturday night, so much so that for sailing on Sunday we nearly lost our sea legs with all that dancing and could hardly shout Protest after all that singing. It was quite a party. Very many thanks for a thoroughly enjoyable and totally memorable occasion. You were all brilliant!"

"Julian,

Apologies for the delay in dropping you a note. I wanted to thank you and all the band for your amazing performance on the 17th. We raised about £30,000, which was way beyond what i thought we could achieve, and everyone said they had an amazing time. 
I would have no hesitation in using you again and recommending you to friends and colleagues. Thanks again !

"Hi Julian,

Sorry this has taken so long, but consider this a hugely belated thank you for your brilliance on our wedding day.  From the look to the sound, your whole performance blew so many people away and we've had so many positive comments since (including a lot of Rocky Raccoon love!) when we've seen people since.

Thanks again.
Peace and love,

Dan and Bec"

"Beatle mania came to Cashes’ Green Community hall in Stroud last week. Fans that had been there in the early 60s, clutching old programmes and nostalgic memories of the fab 4 were waiting at the door with bated breath for them to arrive.   By the end of the night, neighbours that hadn’t talked to each other for years were belting out ‘All you need is love’ and ‘Hey Jude’ with arms entwined  and eyes closed.  120 people crammed into a hall only meant for 100 (don’t tell Sue from Health and Safety.)   It was a glittering and glorious night.

On stage in their early 60s suits and mod cuts, singing old songs such as ‘Love me do',  ‘I want to hold your hand' and 'Eight days a week' the band quickly won over the room.  Musically slick with wonderful harmonies and hilarious Liverpudlian banter, time went backwards and we were transported into an era when music wasn’t written on machines in dark bedrooms by teenage boys or lip-synched by talentless Barbie dolls.  In the second set the boys transformed into late period Beatles – long hair and flared trousers.   Everyone were on their feet, young and old grooving down to the funky tunes  of 'Come Together' and 'Revolution'.

If you want to put on an event to bring people together I can’t recommend ‘All you need is the Beatles’ more highly.  As one lady said, ‘we haven’t partied like this in this community hall since the 60s.’  Now that’s a compliment!"

"Hi Julian,

I just wanted to say a massive thank-you for such an excellent performance last Saturday! I absolutely loved it and I know my friends and family did too. It was great to chat to you all too! I'll definitely be recommending you guys in future and I'm sure you impressed on the night. I'll keep an eye on your facebook page in case you've got gigs whilst I'm back in Cirencester, or in London.

All the best!

“Hi Julian

Thanks to you and the guys for finishing our wedding at The Manor House, Castle Combe in the best possible way. We’ve had so many people telling us since how much they enjoyed the three sets. This coming from diehard Beatles fans, too! I just hope our enthusiastic singalongs weren’t too off-putting! Thanks also for playing ‘If I Fell’ as our first dance. For us being Beatlemanics, it was perfect!

Best wishes,

Steve & Francesca"

"Hi Julian and the band, 

We're back to reality after our wedding and honeymoon and would just like to say a massive thank you to you all - as expected, you were amazing! So many of our guests have commented on how fantastic they thought you were and you really made our special day even more so with such brilliant music. We had the best time dancing to all the songs and seeing our guests doing the same- the dance floor was never empty which is a true testament to how good you guys were. 

Apologies  the timings didn't quite go according to plan on the night but we really appreciate all you did to make it run smoothly.

Thank you once again and if there's any way we can provide positive feedback/ reviews/ shares for you on websites etc then do let us know. 

Best wishes,

Mr and Mrs Tween!"

"I booked All You Need is the Beatles for my dad’s 60th as a birthday present to him, the party had a Beatles theme and I thought this would be the perfect band for the event. I had many correspondences with Julian before to organise the event and even just the week before I was requesting timings to be changed and songs to be played. At such short notice I didn’t know whether they would be able to do this but they accommodated everything I asked for.

When they came out for their first set they looked amazing! The costumes and wigs were fantastic, after a costume change half way through the evening they came back looking even better! Before I booked the band I had looked on their website and watched videos and listened to them playing, so I knew they were going to be good. All I can say is that all the sound bites and videos do not do them any justice; they really were incredible and exceeded any expectation that I had before they arrived.
They created a fantastic atmosphere and there wasn’t a single person at the event not watching them. They had a great energy on stage and sang a brilliant mix of all the best classics. Since the party everyone has complimented me on the band and asked for their details which I have happily passed on. They truly finished my Dads birthday off perfectly and were the icing on the cake.
Not only were they fantastic but they were a really friendly group of guys and I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone!
If you’re thinking about booking this band don’t just think about it do it, because you won’t be disappointed. I’m just trying to think of events to plan so I can book them again!"

"Dear Julian and All You Need Is The Beatles band

What can I say? What a brilliant night it was on Saturday 8th June for our Beatlemania evening. Members have consistently come up to me and said that it was one of the best nights that they can ever remember at the yacht club.

Your professionalism, e.g. turning up on time, and the way you conducted yourself through the whole of the night was absolutely first class. Your show kept our members dancing right from the opening bars of 'From Me To You' all the way through till the end of your encore. Absolutely brilliant!

If ever you need a recommendation please do not hesitate to give our name.

Thanks once again and wishing you continued success.

All the best from

Ysanne, Nigel and all the members of the RMYC"

"Well done Julian and the band for an absolutely brilliant evening last July, and sorry for not writing this a bit earlier!  Everybody had a fantastic time (that was 70 of us, by the way) and we were really surprised that so many of our friends got up to dance because we know that for some of them, the Beatles were not their favourite.  But we think you converted them!  What was so impressive was your attention to detail - the outfits, the stage persona and the movements, and most of all, the accuracy of the music.  There were a number of us there who were around at the time of your mentors and we do take notice of those guitar fills!  Also, I thought Ringo was brilliant – much under-rated at the time too.  Thought you were fairly adventurous to include what’s known as ‘the long medley’ (basically, side 2 of Abbey Road for anybody out there who doesn’t already know) but you carried it off really well!  And to think that one of the reasons the Beatles stopped touring was because they felt unable to replicate the music after the Help LP in 1965!  Brilliant show you guys – look forward to seeing you again soon!"

"Hi Paul, John, George and Ringo, Just a note to thank you for Saturday night you were absolutely brilliant, you made our night. It was a lovely surprise for everyone, especially the Liverpudlian members of the family. I don't need to tell you how much everyone enjoyed it as the dance floor spoke for itself. Thank you all so much for making the day that extra special. I would not hesitate to recommend you. With best wishes"

"On behalf of St. Mary's Church, I would like to thank you and the other members of ‘All You Need Is The Beatles’ for the excellent performance last Saturday night at our fundraising event. Everyone who came said how much they enjoyed it and several who could't attend said they were sorry to have missed such a brilliant evening. All of us at St. Mary's are very grateful to you and the band and wish you continued success in the future. Many, many thanks."

"Hi Julian. Just a quick note to thank you on behalf of Clare and myself for the band’s brilliant performance at our wedding on October 17. Everybody was extremely impressed with both the authenticity of your sound, and your musicianship. It really brought our wedding day to a close in style! The dance floor was full – there were some people getting up who had never been known to dance before in their lives. Cheers."

"Hello Julian. Hope all's well with you. Just a quickie to say we're back at work but still crowing over our superbrilliant wedding. You lot were amazing! So many people have told us how much they enjoyed you. I'm attaching a good picture of the band the photographer took, and have upteen photos of the crowd- ranging from grandad aged 86 to babies via spotty youths and the vicar Beatling away which i can send if they'd be useful for your website or anything. Thanks again for making the evening so much fun. We're so happy you advertised in Uncut! Best wishes to all the Fab 4."

"Just wanted to say a massive thank you to you all for the FABULOUS performance at our wedding 13.09.08.
You played brilliantly and everyone (literally!) was impressed, a great way to end our 'big' day which we are so pleased with.
All the best."


Vicky and Paul Bullock
 
 

"What can I say? What a fantastic evening! You were absolutely phenomenal! Words cannot describe how grateful we are to you for making our wedding reception so lively and memorable - even guests who don't like Beatles music (shame on them!) said how much they enjoyed your the evening and how fantastic you were. Your renditions were absolutely spot-on. I was a bit concerned when I asked you to play several songs which aren't as well known as others, but you even managed to engage people when playing them! And as for learning \"Got to get you into my life\" in the break... you moved me to tears! If you use this on your testimonial page, I want to tell everyone reading that if you have any kind of event - not just a wedding - please chose \"All You Need is The Beatles\". I can assure you that you will not regret it.  Thanks once again for such an amazing performance, and I'd like to provisionally book you for our 25th wedding anniversary on August 22nd 2034!!!"

"There are many words I could use to describe how great ‘All You Need Is The Beatles’ are and these include, professional, talented and unmissable. If you want a wonderful evening of toe tapping, sing out loud entertainment then look no further than the "ALL YOU NEED IS THE BEATLES". Our fund raising evening was a wonderful success and everyone young and old had a brilliant time and we have you to thank for that. I cannot recommend your band enough, thanks again."


Neal Lemay-Lamb - Fundraiser
 
 

"Dear Julian and the band, we just wanted to say a big thank you for helping to make our wedding day so memorable. So many of our guests have since remarked on what a great band you were, and one of our fondest memories of the reception is of everyone singing along to Hey Jude on the dancefloor! Thanks also for going above and beyond with your encore, you really helped to make the evening memorable and fun. Thanks also for your professionalism throughout the booking process and your performance, we really appreciate how smoothly everything went.

We won't hesitate to recommend you to friends and colleagues should they ever need a quality live band!

Best wishes, Danny and Jenny."

"Hi Julian, Just wanted to get in contact and say a massive thank you for the great show you guys put on for us at our wedding in Somerset back in August. Everybody loved it and I know that quite a few people were asking for your details for various functions they had lined up. The set was perfect and you were really accomodating and we couldn't have been any more impressed. I hope you enjoyed the show yourselves too! Anyway, I hope you had a good rest of the summer and all the best for the future."

"Hi Julian, I would just like to say a HUGE thank you again. You were all brilliant and would really like it if you could forward our thanks to the rest of the guys. We had an amazing weekend and your performance was definitely the icing on the cake. We have even had people from the village asking about you because they heard you performing on Sunday. I have given them your information. Big thank you again!!!!

All the best to you and the guys, Emma."

"Hello, Sorry for the late reply but we have only just got back from honeymoon. The band was absolutely amazing! They really made our evening reception perfect. Lots of our guests commented on how good they were. People commented that they sounded just like the Beatles. They certainly got everyone up and dancing and the ending song (Hey Jude) will last in our memory for ever. Thank you once again for making our wedding reception perfect. Thanks."
