Beatlejuice is a New England-based Beatles cover band that featured the late Brad Delp, former front-man of the band Boston on vocals. Beatlejuice has the distinction of faithfully reproducing Beatles music note-for-note, from early Beatles to late Beatles, without costumes or stage gimmicks.
Beatlejuice began in 1994 when John Muzzy and Brad Delp saw Bob Squires
' Beatles cover band play in Newburyport, Massachusetts
and they decided to start their own band. Beatlejuice played regularly at venues throughout New England until lead singer Brad Delp died on March 9
at his home in Atkinson, New Hampshire
at the age of 55.
Beatlejuice is currently performing under the name Beatlejuice and Friends. It began as a series of shows at the Regent Theatre in Arlington, MA as a memorial concert to Brad Delp. Beatlejuice and Friends now plays regularly. Some performers include Jimmy Rogers of Velvet Elvis, Charlie Farren, Peter DiStefano, Mike Girard of The Fools, and more. Their primary lead singer is currently Bob Jennings. Beatlejuice is occasionally joined onstage by Joe Holaday's sons: Jared, who plays saxophone, and P.J., who plays drums.
