THE Bea­tle Boys have come to­gether and fly high above the du­ties of a trib­ute band. While Christo­pher Frazer, John Kater, Rod Alud and Michael Brady sing in the same pitch, share the same man­ner­isms and even look just like the orig­i­nal lineup, they are driv­ing their de­vo­tion to the limit by ‘‘pick­ing up where The Bea­tles left off’’.

Frazer, who recre­ates the spirit of John Len­non in the hits-filled two-hour show, says The Bea­tle Boys are work­ing on an al­bum of orig­i­nals to re­lease as a trib­ute band, de­light­ing fans with their take on a mod­ern day Bea­tles record.

‘‘It will be like an undis­cov­ered al­bum – Bea­tles’ fans can hear songs they never did,’’ he says.

‘‘The sound will be a mix­ture of then and now, al­though we don’t have Abbey Road Stu­dios to play in. The sen­si­bil­ity of th­ese songs will have the DNA of The Bea­tles in it.’’

La­belling them­selves as ‘‘the big­gest fans there are’’, Frazer says the quar­tet bring The Bea­tles back to life with one main agenda: they want their show to repli­cate how the orig­i­nal band’s per­for­mance would be in this day and age.

‘‘The trick is in our name, we are the sons of The Bea­tles,’’ says Frazer.

‘‘We still very much ac­knowl­edge the weight of ex­pec­ta­tions to give the au­di­ence a very good show and ren­di­tion. Our re­spect for the buzz, the mo­ment and thrill re­mains para­mount.’’

The Bea­tle Boys use the same in­stru­ments as their pre­de­ces­sors and have played at some of the same venues.

Frazer says Bea­tles fans will be ser­e­naded to Help, A Hard Day’s Night, Can’t Buy Me Love, Yes­ter­day, Love Me Do, She Loves You, Eleanor Rigby, Hey Jude, Let It Be and many more.

‘‘The show is jam packed with No.1 hits and peo­ple can get up and sing and be a part of the magic,’’ he says.

‘‘It’s an ab­so­lute celebration. Peo­ple have tears of joy.’’
