All Together Now (Beatles Tribute Band)

The All Together Now band is led by Jeff Landrock who has a studio in Berwick called Landrock Recording. He plays rhythm guitar like John Lennon and sings the Paul McCartney parts. Recreating Beatle music is something Jeff never tires of. If you are looking for a night out to break the winter doldrums this is a night that will surely please you. The show includes a large video screen which pro­vides an interactive multimedia experience. The music is also accompanied by original films designed to augment each song, in some cases giving a fresh perspective to tunes we’ve loved for 40 plus years!
