Tribute band looking for new Wingmen [Posted by Dave Haber on Friday, 11/28/08 7:28 am] [Full Blog] [Tweet] [Facebook]
Have you ever been dreamed of producing a tribute band? If so, Mario Proulx in Qu?ec wants to hear from you! He wants to form a Paul McCartney tribute band called London Town, and take it on a world tour.
Mario says, "I could say that I've been influenced like so many other musicians by the Beatles in many ways along the years. I used to be a song writer, I recorded and produced my own album back in 1994, I've even had a number 1 with one of my songs in a local radio station. But years go by so fast that I sudently realized that I wouldn't have the time to make it where I wanted to, and that I was already too old for the music/record industry. So I've asked myself what is that I could do to still be able to go on stage and live my passion."

So Mario created London Town. He says, "I had never managed to see Paul McCartney live untill this very last summer when he came to Qu?ec city for the 400th of the city. There are hundreds if not thousands of tribute bands to the Beatles around the world, but not to Paul McCartney. My goal would be to give people the impression that they really are in presence of Sir Paul, because so many people had never seen him live yet."
If you're a solid producer and you think you can help make Mario's dream come true, please email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
