THE LIVERPOOL SHUFFLE

AUTHENTIC  LIVE BEATLE MUSIC

performed by PROFESSIONAL BEATLEMANIACS!

Originally formed in 2003 by Joe Refano, THE LIVERPOOL SHUFFLE brings together veterans of the New York music scene with a combined  150 years of musical experience between them. 

They are all avowed BEATLEMANIACS. 

They delight audiences of all ages with their fun performances at corporate events, theatres, casinos, town events, festivals (weddings and private parties too!) They have perfomed many thousands of shows.

The Liverpool Shuffle can do two different shows.  The first option is just the four of us doing the early Beatle material.  We can also do a 5 piece setup where we perform with a keyboardist and do some of the later material as well.

             Some people feel the need to change or interpret BEATLE music the way THEY think it should be. WHY?????
