Beat-lele, featuring four Beatle-loving musicians from Oahu, will perform at the Kahilu Theatre Thursday, Dec. 2 at 4 p.m. and Friday, Dec. 3 at 7 p.m. For tickets and more information, call (808) 885-6868 or visit https://kahilutheatre.org/.
Beat-LeLe performed for numerous years as a Beatles tribute band in Hawaii before they decided to reinvent themselves and fuse the beautiful music of The Beatles with their passion for playing ukuleles. There is no other musical group in the world we are aware of combining the timeless music of The Beatles to the soaring popularity of a simple ukulele with added percussion of a cajon.
With Sonny Aquino as “John,” Nolet Quiason as “Paul,” Alastar McNeil as “George,” and Dennis Muth as “Ringo,” each band member sings and performs their respective parts as one would expect from the original recordings. Beat-Lele spans The Beatles’ career from Love Me Do through their later years of Let It Be, Abbey Road, and everything in between. Their impeccable attention to musical detail will make you wonder if you are hearing the actual recordings!
Over the years, the members of Beat-Lele have individually performed with seasoned musicians in Hawaii, the U.S. mainland, and the Philippines. Up until recently, Alastar and Dennis performed at the historic Waikiki Sheraton Princess Kai’iulani Showroom with The Beatles tribute production of Fourever Fab, and Alastar is a regular touring member of RAIN! — one of the premier Beatle tribute bands in the world.
Beat-LeLe recently released their self-titled debut album produced by legendary producer/engineer Dave Tucciarone. Beat-LeLe was also honored to have been invited to the 2017 International Beatle Week Festival in Liverpool, England. They performed ten shows over seven days to thousands of enthusiastic Beatle fans from the world over. They are excited to share this harmonious blend of “island-style” Beatles music with Hawaii and everyone else across the universe.
Two Beat-lele concerts will take place at the Kahilu Theatre (67-1186 Lindsey Rd.) in Waimea on Thursday, Dec. 2 at 4 p.m. and Friday, Dec. 3 at 7 p.m. For tickets and more information, call (808) 885-6868 or visit https://kahilutheatre.org/.
