This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Beatles' historic Carnegie Hall appearance. They look and sound like The Beatles. The performance, professionalism and musicianship make the illusion complete. Band members are Mark Benson as John Lennon, Graham Alexander as Paul McCartney, Tom Work as George Harrison, and Bobby Potter as Ringo Starr.
