"beatlegras at the Palace Theatre"

Fort Worth Star Telegram-
There are so many Beatles cover bands around that we were starting to become bored with mundane versions of Back in the U.S.S.R. Until we heard Beatlegras do that song on National Public Radio a few weeks ago. Their fast-picking version actually had us singing along, which no other group, aside from the Fab Four themselves, have managed to do. The Trio of Milo Deering, George Anderson and Dave Walser do the John-Paul-George-Ringo catalog as bluegrass and jazz with a “classical twist”. It’ll have you tripping like you just discovered Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds.

"beatlegras at the Courtyard Theatre"

They’re not John, Paul, George and Ringo, but you might want to call beatlegras the Fab Three. Studio pickers Dave Walser on guitar, George Anderson on upright bass and Milo Deering on just about every other stringed instrument take the Lennon-McCartney songbook and refashion it as fiery bluegrass tracks. And they have a sense of humor, too...

"beatlegras at the Texas Theatre"

Friday evening, February 11, 2005 - We knew a little about this group, having checked out their web site,, and listened to the music samples. What we heard during their generously long sets was some of the most imaginative, creative and thoroughly enjoyable music we have heard in a long time. The melange of musical styles brought together by this trio of extremely talented musicians was very exciting to hear. The melding of jazz, country, bluegrass and rock and roll with the familiar Beatles' classic music was awesome. Their performance was a great treat from beginning to end. Their on-stage banter was hilarious and this approachable trio was very friendly and signed their CDs after the show. The trio, George Anderson, Dave Walser, and Milo Deering, are all session musicians in the Dallas area with many years of musical experience under their belts. Their bios are really an interesting read so be sure to go to their web site and follow the links for some enjoyable discoveries. Hopefully, they will make many trips down south to The Texas Theatre and share their music with us.

Our first CD titled "beatlegras" was released in Jan of 2004. We did the CD as a project and then became a band as a result.
"beatlegras live" was released Jan 2005 and gives a good picture of what our concerts are like. The recordings have that raw sound, but you can hear the humor in what we do.
We are finishing up our third CD to be named at a later date. We feel it will be our best and contains several original tunes as well.


Feeling a bit camera shy


Bands have been covering Beatles tunes for decades, but none like this talented trio. Imagine the music of the Fab Four shaken up with infusions of bluegrass and jazz and topped off with a classical twist. The result: a satisfying musical cocktail called beatlegras.
“This isn’t your same old Beatles band,” says Dave Walser, founder of the innovative group. A fan of the classic quartet since he first saw them on the Ed Sullivan Show, Dave was inspired to create beatlegras after seeing McCartney’s Back in the U.S. tour in 2002. “I thought it would be fun to get some great musicians together and play all acoustic versions of Beatles songs. Hooking up with George and Milo was the best thing that could happen. Each of us adds a little something different to the mix”.
A longtime Dallas musician, Dave Walser owns and operates Blue Moon Recording and Post, where most of the beatlegras CD was recorded.
George Anderson has been playing classical upright bass since junior high, which he now plays occasionally for the Dallas Symphony Orchestra. He has also played with such notables as Ray Charles, Ella Fitzgerald and Woody Herman to name a few. His jazz album “Faces” was listed for a Grammy Award in the spring of 2003 and he is much in demand for his smooth jazz and R&B sound. Dave says “When I first asked George to be in beatlegras, he said he didn’t really know anything about playing bluegrass on the bass. I said, Great! You’ll be perfect!”
Milo Deering is a virtuoso player of stringed instruments, including the mandolin, fiddle, guitar and dobro. He is in constant demand as a session player and also as a composer. Milo has toured with Lee Ann Rimes and other well-known artists. You’ve probably heard his fiddle playing on the infamous Motel 6 theme song (“We’ll leave the light on for you”), which he also co-wrote. He even graced the silver screen in a cameo in the Sandra Bullock movie “Hope Floats”.
“One of the best things to me about the Beatles,” says Dave, “is that they weren’t afraid to think outside of the box. Neither are we”.
