The iconic duo behind the music of the Beatles, Paul McCartney and John Lennon’s songwriting partnership began in 1957 when the pair met at a church event. The two immediately struck up a partnership that would form the basis of the world’s most iconic band, and produce more than 180 songs. Since the inception of their partnership the pair agreed that all songs written by them would feature both names, and though later disputes would see the alteration of the order and crediting of certain songs, they remain one of the most influential songwriters of the 19th century. According the Guinness Book of World Records “Yesterday” in the most covered song of all time. Hits include “Hey Jude,” “Across the Universe,” and “Wait.”

The Wannabees play “classic rock done right,” from the decades of greatest music. Featuring three and four part harmonies with dual guitars and exceptional musicianship, the groups has play a variety of venues and festivals across eastern North Carolina, including the Embrace Recovery Rally, City Stage New Bern, and the Buccaneer Music Hall.
