The Cast of Beatlemania

The Cast of Beatlemania


The "Cast" recreates the sights & sounds of The BEATLES so faithfully that you will recall when the world was engulfed in the most pleasant fever of all: BEATLEMANIA! The "Cast" continue in their show as The BEATLES changed in their careers. Three different costumes coincide with the changing music.


The Cast of Beatlemania is a U.S. tribute band to The Beatles, one of the best known and longest running in the world. The group currently features Lenie Colacino, a former cast member of the 1977 Broadway musical Beatlemania. The group has performed in all contiguous U.S. states, and over twenty foreign countries, including Canada, England, Mexico, Central and South America, Brazil and Japan.

The Cast was individually selected from thousands of musicians who auditioned from all over the U.S. for the Broadway show, Beatlemania. The CAST originally started when members of the BROADWAY show were let go as the show came to a conclusion. Those members (Lenie Colacino, Richie Gomez, Mike Palaikis and Bob Forte) started The CAST and the same group has been in existence since the early 1980's. This current incarnation of the show is the best sounding and most popular version since inception. Carlo and Lenie have been playing together since the late 1980's and they continue to perform the most consistent and complete show available.
