Beatles/British Invasion – BBC Band

BBC Band 1The BBC Band is a group of talented Western New York area musicians dedicated to capturing the original sound of The Beatles/British Invasion and other and sixties music. A common bond shared by each member is that they have spent their lives as keen musical enthusiasts, meticulously studying these recordings allowing them to provide the most accurate musical presentation possible.

Each band member breaks down every musical nuance, to faithfully reproduce the original sound, and it’s all done live on stage! The BBC Band attacks each song with fire, enthusiasm and personality. While having much fun playing together, they create an infectious energy. The band has a warm, sociable stage presence, and delivers great music that sparks raw emotions in people of all ages. The BBC band is a powerhouse of talent that features John Connelly, Frank Grizanti, Bob Volkman, Gary Astridge, and Russ Thomas.

BBC Band 2Testimonials

“They bring the audience to their feet and leave them wanting more! They transcend the market of a ‘local band’ and compete with and often surpass sales of National Touring Tribute Acts and Vegas Beatles shows that we host. Our historic theatre seats 1,140, The BBC Band is the ONLY Western New York based Band to sell out the theatre! They are a pleasure to work with, arriving at the venue prepared and the quality of their show is only surpassed by the quality of the individuals themselves.”
– Jim Pritchard, Riviera Theatre

“We have had the pleasure of hosting The BBC Band annually for the past several years.  The quality of performance fits seamlessly with our roster of national artists.  Our staff and audience alike look forward to their amazing themed and consistently sold out shows. ”

“The BBC Band is the #1 concert band in Western New York…For the past three years, The BBC Band has sold out O’Hara’s Performing Arts Center 900 seat Theater. They are remarkable performers, a pleasure to work with, and a must see show.”
– Bill Tepas, O’Hara Performing Arts Center

“You must see them to believe…. five lads from Buffalo, so passionate and deep into the music they grew up with. They have it all: chemistry, charisma, superb vocals and musicianship. They are the closest likeness I’ve ever heard to the Beatles from a live group anywhere, anytime…They are as great as entertainers as they are musicians.”
– Craig Matthews , WYRK 106.5 Radio

“I’ve seen the The BBC every chance I have had, and they are, simply put, an incredible collection of musicians and men. They put everything on stage for every show, and the amount of money they have raised for charities is astonishing…BBC may not look like The Beatles or the other bands they cover, but when you close your eyes, it is like actually being back in time.”
– Tom Bauerle, Radio 930 WBEN
