The WannaBeatles

The WannaBeatles


When it comes to recreating the fun and excitement of the most popular band in music history, The WannaBeatles live up to their name.

They are 2012 Grammy finalists who have written songs in honor of their fellow nominees Paul McCartney and Betty White. Their “We Wanna Meet Paul” and “Oh Betty! (The Betty White Song) video have taken the group to an entirely new level.

The WannaBeatles got their start playing at a Mexican restaurant in Nashville where “Beatles and Fajitas” were the chosen fare.  For Dennis Scott, Bryan Cumming, Nathan Burbank, and David Toledo it was love at first note!

Entertaining at Nashville hot spots proved to be a springboard for higher profile shows which included appearances with such renowned artists as Wynonna Judd, Phil Keaggy, and Jonny Lang. Their performances at The Tennessee Performing Arts Center and The Music City Bowl have earned them enthusiastic reviews and standing ovations. Earlier this year they appeared with The South Florida Symphony Orchestra where they debuted never before heard orchestral arrangements of Beatles songs.

The WannaBeatles have also produced ground breaking shows of their own including a rooftop concert to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Beatles final concert together made popular in the film, “Let it Be.”

These four Fab contenders use their multi-instrumental skills to re-create all eras of the Beatles song catalogue. Says Dennis Scott, the group’s founder, “We literally tie ourselves into pretzels to reproduce songs that The Beatles never performed live.”

And maybe that’s what makes The WannaBeatles special. It’s a team effort that lovingly allows the audience to share in their journey to go “where no Beatles band has gone before.” The WannaBeatles love what do and it shows.
