Ken Dziuba as John Lennon
Like the Beatles’ great and innovative leader, Ken is an amazing sound-alike of John Lennon. Ken has studied John Lennon’s writing, singing and playing in great depth; one might say, unprecedented detail! On stage he might be seen playing a black Rickenbacker electric ¾ model 325, or a Gibson model J-160E acoustic guitar –both just like John’s – with resounding accuracy. His singing voice is an accurate, spot-on impersonation of John Lennon’s. He has studied every musical aspect the Beatles’ song catalog, arranges the band’s material and is a virtual encyclopedia on the Beatles' music.
Marty Trentacosta as Paul McCartney
Marty, a long time Beatles Tribute band bassist, is featured prominently in BEATLES FAUX SALE. Marty has made it his passion to study and work on the various tones, inflections and characteristics that are unique to Paul McCartney’s vocal sound – with fantastic results – as you can hear in the audio and video samples on this web site. In addition, Marty’s “on-stage” introductions, witty banter, and speaking voice will have you believing you are truly listening to “Sir Paul” at a live Beatles concert in the mid-60’s! A fascinating and authentic aspect of Marty’s portrayal of Paul McCartney is that he plays LEFT-HANDED bass guitar – like Paul – (despite his being a natural righty). This is a feature NOT usually found in most other bands.
Len Carparelli as George Harrison
Len has performed and recorded professionally with many well known artists from the 1980s; most notably Joan Jett, Paul Shaffer from “David Letterman” and Stevie Nicks, under the stage name “LEN LEONARD”. For his role as George Harrison in BEATLES FAUX SALE Len took a step back to his roots to study the various and intricate guitar stylings of George Harrison. Len’s natural ability and years of experience as a professional NYC session musician has been a great help to him in allowing him to master all of George’s parts, instrumentally AND vocally.
Greg Dziuba as Ringo Starr
Last, and certainly not least, is our very own “Ringo Starr”, Greg Dziuba. Listening to Greg sing “Boys” or “I Wanna Be Your Man”, will tell you why every Beatles tribute band wishes they had Greg as their drummer. No musician playing the role of Ringo sounds more like “Ringo” than Greg. Greg’s vocal performances are a highlight in the band’s live shows and his drumming style is an exact duplication of Ringo Starr’s work with The Beatles. Greg is arguably the best singing "Ringo" in the Beatle Tribute Band business.
