THE RETURN - A Beatles Tribute Band

The Return are a FANTASTIC Beatles Tribute Band from Griffin, GA. They play the early Beatles hits, up through the1965 years, thereabouts. They have the accents, the suits, and especially the instruments. My Wife and I stumbled across them at a free concert they were giving at a local shopping mall in Georgia. We were there shopping and on our way out to the car, we heard this fabulous Beatles music drifting through the warm Summer air. Being huge Beatles Fans, we were absolutely hooked and have since gone on to see them play live about about 5 times now, with the most recent show on June 1, 2006 at Screen On The Green, where they played live before a showing of "A Hard Days Night" outdoors on the big screen.

As a dopey fan, I decided to present them with a drawing of themselves in the style of the old Beatles cartoon show from the 60's. They liked it so much, they had T-Shirts made, and are now selling them at their shows. The finished art is presented above, although they had to make a 3-color version for the final shirt. Below is my original doodle.

I’ve been a huge Beatles fan since I was a kid so I’ve been listening to them for over 25 years. Being that I’m only 34 years old I am not old enough to have seen The Beatles perform live or get involved with them as a current band.

That said I do enjoy most Beatles tribute bands. These guys look really good and I’d like to see how they sound. Although I love all of the Beatles music I’d like to hear all their music not just the early hits. There is one band I’ve heard called the Fab Faux who play all the Beatles music from early to later hits and classics. I’ve heard that they may be entering the 1st annual international tribute band competition that’s being held on January 19th, 2008 out in Las Vegas. I’d like to see these guys win…they are fantastic and hopefully they’ll end up being one of the top 3 tribute bands that will be chosen to compete at the Empire Ballroom in Las Vegas for the grand prize.
