About Studio Two:
Hailed “New England’s Best Beatles Tribute Band,” StudioTwo continues its national tour in celebration of The Beatles music before America (1960-1963) and the early hits from the touring years (1963-1966).
Studio Two is a headlining Beatles band that pays tribute to the early Beatles years, choosing songs from the pre-Sgt. Pepper era. Unlike other Beatle acts that try to deliver the entire Beatles’ catalog, Studio Two concentrates only on the most exciting and fun time in The Beatles career.
Featuring graduates from Berklee College of Music and Beatles devotees, Studio Two band mates met in a “cellar full of noise” in a town slightly west of Liverpool (Milford, New Hampshire!) to pay homage to the greatest rock band of all time. Band members are experienced musicians of today’s generation dedicated to preserving the memory and fan culture of The Beatles generation. By recreating the Fab Four’s music, instruments, and onstage banter, Studio Two performs your most favorite hits that will bring people to the dance floor.
