What can you expect from an AfterFab show? A high-energy, passionate tribute to the mega-classic canon of The Beatles' solo years, the only one in the world, played with high fidelity to the original studio recordings. Beatles fans are absolutely everywhere and this unique concept and focus draws them in droves. It's something new and different for Beatles and classic-rock fans, and general audiences, thanks to 70 US Top-40 hits and 325 million records collectively sold by John, Paul, George, and Ringo, post-Beatles. The genius didn't stop with Abbey Road. This is the classic Beatles music that fans have been missing.
AfterFab is a formidable six-member powerhouse of long-experienced Beatles-expert musicians with a dynamic, entertaining front man and a talent for getting the music right. Not impersonators, but a music-first tribute along the lines of Brit Floyd, Get The Led Out, or The Fab Faux. Based in New England, the band began in 2012, designed from the start as a concert attraction for top music clubs, performing-arts spaces, theatres, and venues that desire to present something special for guests. Misson-driven to convey the brilliance of the solo Beatles' legacy, AfterFab adds extra dimensions of entertainment with back-stories of the songs, fascinating trivia, and video of images of solo Beatles LPs, singles, adverts, and quotations.
"When I first thought of a tribute exclusively to the solo Beatles," says guitarist Ad Boc," I was sure I'd find others doing it. But tributing a 'band' that never actually existed is apparently an idea outside the box. 'Brilliant concept' has been an oft-repeated compliment. The Beatles were my first musical love, and it's exciting to be bringing their solo stuff to live audiences." Ad led original indie-rock bands for 20 years, and his first recruit was long-time collaborator Tom Evans on drums. Next to jump enthusiastically aboard was experienced singer/front-man Jonathan Paquin, a devotee of Paul McCartney and Robert Plant. "I brought myself up on the solo stuff before I discovered The Beatles," says Jon, "I knew Admiral Halsey before I knew Lovely Rita." It then took a year's trial and error to find the rest.
Mike Bishop nailed his bass audition on the first try, no surprise after having logged years in original and cover bands throughout New England and New York. Next in was keyboardist Bryan Eyberg, a pro music instructor with a Master's Degree in Music Performance. Rounding out the line-up is Lauren Passarelli, the first woman ever to graduate as a guitar performance major from Berklee College of Music, where she now teaches and is known as "The Beatles Professor" for her extreme expertise regarding all things Fab Four.
AfterFab constantly build their repertoire of chart hits and iconic album cuts, seeking to please any audience. "Thrilled!" "Elated!" and "Amazing!" were the actual words from management of three venues AfterFab played consecutively in 2014, and the shows got even better from there. The band has been discovered and hailed with excitement by Beatles authors like Robert Rodriguez and Ricardo Pugialli. "They did the solo stuff and rocked it!" said organizer/promoter Charles Rosenay on the radio, following AfterFab's appearance at his 2014 Fab 4 Music Festival: Danbury Fields Forever. MC and radio host Ken Michaels remarked, "They played with a passion. You could see it in their faces. They really practiced and studied the music. And the lead singer, he was outrageous!"

Deanna creates an incredible environment of trust and honesty which allows you to really go there, to the depths, the weird, dark and zany places. She has a great eye and won’t let you hide or foster old patterns. Sometimes I feel like I’m a child in front of my siblings, free to go wild.
Deanna is like a sculptor. She molds your talents, quirks and insecurities into a character you can play through.
Deanna is uncanny at drawing genuineness and comedy out of every single person. The class is engaging from beginning to end, and her way of explaining the work is wonderfully precise and effective.
I thought it would be fun. It turned out to be profound.

Come early for a special opening set from LES DEUX:
Les Deux is the creative joining of DJs Mercedes and Cost Carma (Erin Wehlage), two long-time underground dance music aficionados with varied yet complementary subgenre proclivities. Mercedes cut her DJ teeth learning to spin vinyl in Chicago beginning in 2005/2006, and while living in Providence in 2010 she co-formed an all-women house music DJette collective, which performed together in Providence and Boston through 2012. Mercedes continued as a solo DJ thereafter, and finds her musical home in extra deep, melodic, synth-heavy sexy house music complete with ample female vocals.
Erin began DJing in 1997 in Cleveland and Columbus Ohio, deeply inspired by the godfathers of progressive house. During 2005-2007, Erin held the distinction of being the only female DJ spinning vinyl in Wilmington, NC and held her own weekly residency as Cost Carma at Souya. Erin was featured at The Trump Room in Tokyo, Japan, and also regularly played underground raves in San Francisco between 2009 and 2013. Erin’s deep house preference resides in the techier, nerdier, funkier part of the spectrum.
Together, Mercedes and Cost Carma look forward to share their depth of musical knowledge and track collection gleaned from over a decade of digging with Boston’s underground dance music community.

$50 tickets will give you access to exclusive reserved seating in the closest seats to the stage (within rows 2-6). Great for parents and friends! These tickets are assigned by our staff in the order that you purchase them online. These tickets are NEVER available at-the-door. You will receive a special gift bag which also includes our program book, and each VIP ticket will be entered into a VIP ticket only raffle basket prize called "Contestant Experience" which includes all the magnificent sponsor gifts that each of our contestants receive just for competing!
$30 seats purchased in advance online will give you more than 15% off general seating in the hall. Seating is first come-first serve. (General Admission is $40 at-the-door depending on availability, we will most likely sell out the entire auditorium, therefore you should purchase online in advance). Online ticketing will be shut down 36 ours before showtime, or earlier if we are sold out.
