Response from The McCartney Project:
Thanks Tom. Great audience and we love that theatre. Hope to see you next year. Please introduce youself and say hi.
The McCartney Project is absolutely amazing. Tony Burlingame brings Sir Paul to life with his fabulous impersonation. His voice, looks and mannerisms are uncanny. Close your eyes and you will be in the presence of the former Beatle. This is a show that you truly don't want to miss. It's no wonder he is America's #1 tribute to Paul McCartney!
Response from The McCartney Project:
Thanks William. Appreciate the review! TMP
What to Expect
The McCartney Project is America's #1 live concert tribute to Paul McCartney, Wings and The Beatles. Our show is more than a concert; it’s an "experience"! Emulating what Paul McCartney plays in his recent concerts, we cover more than three decades of music, from the early Beatles through the monster hits of Wings and more. This sets us apart from the many excellent Beatles tribute bands and extends our demographic reach. Tony (our "Paul") plays the left-handed bass, acoustic guitar, piano and ukulele and is backed by the talented McCartney Project Band recreating Sir Paul’s music note-for-note.
Our live concert experience will evoke pleasant memories and create new ones. This is a fun, high-energy, interactive show from the opening song through the closing encore. It is a family-friendly show and a wonderful opportunity to introduce kids or grand-kids to Sir Paul’s unforgettable music. Each show includes a meet-and-greet with Tony and the band immediately after the concert! Be part of the ultimate McCartney experience!
Our theatre show is typically 2 hours with a short intermission. Our set list includes Beatles and Wings hits thereby continually pleasing the die-hard Beatles or Wings fan. The second set normally opens with a short acoustic set. We can tailor our set list to the expected demographics of your attendees (more/less Beatles, more/less up-tempo songs, etc.). Tony does 4-5 minor costume changes throughout the show and plays the bass guitar, acoustic guitar, piano and ukulele. Since these shows typically are attended by passionate fans of Paul McCartney we sometimes perform some deeper cuts that fans appreciate. Tony weaves some storytelling into the show to reveal facts even some die-hard McCartney fans may not know.
Festivals, fairs and summer concerts are typically 90-120 minute shows but we can perform up to a three hour show (with breaks). These shows are typically a bit more up-tempo and do not include an acoustic sit-down set. A meet-and-greet can immediately follow the show, if requested. Technical requirements are similar to theatre shows.
The McCartney Project is America’s #1 Paul McCartney, Wings and Beatles tribute. Our authentic tribute starts with left-handed, sound-alike, look-alike Tony Burlingame as Paul McCartney playing the iconic Hofner violin bass. Tony is backed by the talented McCartney Project Band recreating Sir Paul’s music note-for-note. At our show you can sing along to every song as we recreate the best of The Beatles and the monster hits of Wings. This family-friendly show covers more than three decades of music and is great for all ages.
Additional Booking Notes
Technical requirements: we prefer a single 16’ x 8’ platform riser for Tony (keys), Sara (keys) and Phil (drums). We use in-ear monitoring which provides audiences with a much better audio experience than traditional floor monitors that can sometimes be louder than the FOH mix. This allows us to play in any size venue. Finally, we like to project a video backdrop behind the band. Theatre provided projectors and screens deliver the best experience but we can bring our own projector and screen.
We play the best of The Beatles and the monster hits of Wings including: Yesterday, Listen to What the Man Said, Hey Jude, Maybe I'm Amazed, Eight Days A Week, Jet, My Love, When I'm 64, Hard Day's Night, Oh! Darling, Live and Let Die and many more.
Influences & Inspiration
The Beatles, Wings, Paul McCartney, Elvis Presley, Everly Brothers, Chuck Berry, Carl Perkins, Barrett Strong and Buddy Holly.
We typically bring our own backline, mics, stand, cables etc ... all up to the venue's sound. We use in-ear monitors. No amps or monitor wedges on stage to muddy the mix.
