GETTING the party season started with its entertaining show dedicated to the Fab Four are The Fab Beatles.

The Exeter-based tribute act are renowned as one of the best Beatles impersonators around.

Normally they travel far and wide for gigs but on Thursday, December 6, they will enjoy performing close to home at Exmouth Pavilion.

Each instrument and costume is an exact replica of the real thing, helping to create that nostalgic journey back to the Beatles era.

The show starts with Love Me Do and goes right through each album and song right up to Let It Be. Each period of the Beatles' legacy is superbly re-lived and re-created by the Fab Beatles.

The band was founded by Kev Day, aka John Lennon, 21 years ago and its current line-up is regarded as one if its strongest in the band's history.

Kev, from Heavitree, Exeter, said: "The Beatles have always been my first love and it never gets boring because of that.

"All Beatles fans say we stay true to the music and we don't use tapes or pre-recorded tracks. We try and keep the fun and spirit of it. It's all about having a laugh. We don't take it too seriously."

Among the many achievements the band has enjoyed is being picked by the BBC as the best Beatles tribute band to compete in BBC1 programme Battle of the Fantasy Bands in 2001.Another impressive feat was being commissioned by EMI to promote the Beatles 1 CD.

Tickets for the gig, starting at 8pm, cost £14.50. Call 01395 222477 or visit www.ledtickets.co.uk
