NASHVILLE - The WannaBeatles, the world’s only Grammy-nominated Beatles tribute band, will travel to New York City to make their national television debut when they appear on “ Huckabee” on Fox News Channel on Saturday, Feb. 1 at 8 p.m. ET.
The award-winning songwriters/musicians will help celebrate the highly anticipated and publicized 50th Anniversary of the Beatles first performance on American soil ("The Ed Sullivan Show") by playing a medley of Beatles classics as well as debuting their self-proclaimed Beatles fan anthem “Because They Were Fab.” Gov. Huckabee will sit in with The WannaBeatles on bass as the “Fifth WannaBeatle.”
Straight from their first national television performance, the high energy musical tribute band will make their Big Apple debut, bringing their uniquely energetic live show of Beatles classics and their own original Beatle-esque songs to New York City’s famed The Cutting Room (44 E. 32nd St.).
