Mike, Jim, & Bill

A unique reconstruction of the classic Beatles Revolver & Rubber Soul Albums featuring 3 voices and 3 guitars, with great stories Live at Nighttown!

Featuring: Mike Kearns, Jim Wilson, and Bill Hoffman.

Mike, Jim & Bill (Clevelanders Mike Kearns, Jim Wilson and Bill Hoffman) have performed their interpretation of The Beatles’ White Album to sold out crowds, twice, at Nighttown. Now the boys follow up with two of The Beatles’ most popular and innovative albums: Rubber Soul and Revolver.

On October 17, 1965, The Beatles entered Abbey Road Studios to record their sixth album, just in time, for a Christmas release, as usual. But there was nothing usual about the outcome. First, and there were many firsts, they did not have songs to record so over the next month and just eleven recording sessions they wrote and recorded 14 of their most creative works. And instead of writing songs of teen love, and inspired by American folk and soul music, they wrote songs about their lives what they felt inside. “Norwegian Wood”, “Nowhere Man”, “The Word”, “Think for Yourself” and “In My Life” to name a few. Being recording veterans, The Beatles asserted themselves and, for the first time, had complete creative control which resulted in, Rubber Soul, an album that certainly changed things.

The change continued with their next effort, Revolver. Again, the universes of pop writing, music, arranging and recording was expanded. 1966 was the year music got “experienced’ and The Beatles led the way. The Beatles wanted everything to sound different, so they experimented with levels, mic placement, tape loops, twin guitar leads, Leslie-phased vocals, Indian instruments artificial double-tracking (ADT) and a variety of new effects, most of which were invented on the spot. The result was another milestone led by “Eleanor Rigby”, “I’m Only sleeping”, “Here, There and Everywhere”, “Good Day Sunshine”, and “Tomorrow Never Knows”.

Both albums, not only, changed the course of The Beatles but, as many have said, changed the direction of pop music. This is not a tribute band. No wigs, please. Mike, Jim & Bill treat each song with the love and respect they deserve and with just three guitars and three voices add style and feeling of their own.
