An authentic Beatles experience comes to Smiths Falls

If you missed seeing them in the 60s and 70s, here’s your chance to experience the magic and charisma of the Beatles.  Four gifted musicians from Montreal have not only perfected the sound of the Beatles, they manage to recreate the Beatles experience on stage.

“They’re the closest thing you’ll get to the Beatles, they look just like them and they’re so tight and so good.  It’s a great show,” says Jim Bray, account executive with Lake 88, who has seen them play twice in this area in the last three years.

Replay the Beatles will be taking the stage at the Gallipeau Centre Theatre on Saturday November 8 for one show only.  At the band’s request the show will start at 8:00 p.m. and will include two sets with costume changes.

“If you’re a Beatles fan, you will feel like you’ve seen the Beatles,” says John Oriettas, a.k.a. Paul McCartney and the band manager. “If you don’t know the Beatles, it’s a fun night.”

The Fab Four impersonators have been together for about 12 years now and have been wowing audiences across the pond and in North America ever since.

“They’re a huge crowd pleaser, they brought us a bigger audience at our summer shows going from 300 to 1000, and we’ve brought them back every year since 2010 not just for our summer shows but for our bigger concerts,” says Kristina Timms, cultural animator with the city of Beaconsfield.

According to Timms, Replay sound exactly like the Beatles not only musically but during their onstage banter, capturing the Liverpudlian accent perfectly and even the mannerisms of the original Fab Four.

“Their show is a Beatles rock concert instead of the usual Beatles shows which are more tributey,” says Timms.

Like so many good things this band got together by accidental design and simply jelled.  Each of the four musicians simply took on the role of the Beatle whose instrument they play and it’s just coincidence that they manage to look like the original band members once they’re in costume.  Their attention to detail is legendary and extends to their sound – they always provide their own sound technician at every show.

“It’s a bit like asking a chef to make a souffle, if they don’t know what it is they won’t be able to make it. It’s the same with the sound, you have to know what the Beatles sounded like so you can recreate that sound for the audience,” says Oriettas, adding “We want to make sure that the sound is original, so it’s modern sound quality but the guitars and drums sound just like the Beatles,” says Oriettas.

Replay is by all accounts and reviews a ‘must see’ show, and tickets are $39.50 so drop by the Gallipeau Centre Box office or call 613-205-1493 to book your seat for Nov 8.  You can also purchase tickets online at www.gallipeaucentretheatre.ca through ticketpro.
