Who is ‘John, Paul, George and Ringo – The Beatles Tribute’ ?
Me & My Monkey - The Beatles Tribute
Rod Bollinger as John Lennon (vocals, guitar, keyboards, harmonica)
Paul Sacco as Paul McCartney (vocals, bass, keyboards)
George Jara as George Harrison (vocals, guitar)
Michael Daniel as Ringo Starr (vocals, drums)
The two original members, George Jara (George Harrison) and Rod Bollinger (John Lennon), have been with the group since it’s inception just six years ago, adding Michael Daniel (Ringo Starr) shortly there afterward, and as recently as three years ago, adding Paul Sacco (Paul McCartney) to complete the line-up. Since then the band has traveled extensively perfecting its' world class ‘Tribute to The Beatles’ along the way. With numerous television appearances, and headlining many festivals as well as opening for a handful of classic rock favorites in the United States (even playing with the likes of Denny Laine (of Paul McCartney’s Wings) and Gordon Waller of Peter and Gordon), Me & My Monkey was more ready than ever to invade the shores of the U.K. In an interview with a brit-pop magazine, Paul Sacco (Paul McCartney) states: “We feel there is only one way to do this…the right way. We’ll stop at nothing to give people the feeling that they are actually seeing and hearing the Beatles live.” “We actually are very competitive within the band itself, as far as the attention to detail. We are our own toughest critics.”

"We loved Me and My Monkey. They are professional, flexible, and
responsive in every way- not to mention great musicians. The second they
began playing the crowd started dancing, young and old, and never stopped. A
year after our daughter's wedding reception our friends still comment on
what a blast they had. John, Paul, George, and Ringo would be proud."

Live Review of Me and My Monkey – The Beatles Tribute in Liverpool, England
“… go and see the greatest tribute band in the world: "Me and My Monkey."
“Rod had the crowd in stitches with his accent.” “Paul Sacco is a dead ringer for Paul McCartney!” “They played at The Cavern Club, Royal Court Theatre, and they apparently closed Castle St. (Mathew Street Festival – England’s Largest Free Festival). “…Everyone I talked to said that Me and My Monkey was the best Beatles Tribute band in the world! Hey they should know they grew up with this band!”
NEC held a 60's themed party for some of our largest customers at John
Ascuaga's Nugget Hotel and Casino in Reno, Nevada. The focal point was
Me and My Monkey and everyone had an absolute blast. The Beatles music and
costuming were big hits, and people of all ages and backgrounds thoroughly enjoyed themselves. The band's professionalism and talent make them an excellent entertainment choice and I look forward to hiring them again!
