Help! From My Friends

Help! From My Friends is a newly formed Beatles tribute band. The group has performed Beatles songs over the years at various gigs, however, they decided to become an official band in November of last year!

They focus on the three-part harmony, which they believe was the Beatles’ “secret sauce”. Help! From My Friends features faithful Beatles guitar fills and riffs, as in the original songs, in addition to vocals.

Event-goers are encouraged to join in, as the band’s name states, and give a helping hand with your voice, provided percussions, and dancing to the nostalgic songs you know and love.
