The Band

Revolver and Friends performs a first rate Beatles and friends musical tribute.

The band was initially founded as “Revolver” in 1981. The band was the opening act at the Lulu’s Roadhouse 20th anniversary British Invasion Show in 1984, sharing the stage with Gerry and The Pacemakers and Herman’s Hermits. In addition, the band performed with The Troggs, Billy J. Kramer, Badfinger, and Chuck Mangione, as well as numerous times at Toronto’s CNE and Ontario Place Forum.

The current version of the band is called “Revolver and Friends”, and performs a first-rate musical tribute to The Beatles, as well as the hits of other bands from the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s.  We pride ourselves in our vocal harmonies and professional stage presentation.

Revolver and Friends is grateful for all of the opportunities to perform on stage this year, and we were especially thrilled to appear with many other great bands at the Niagara 2022 Canada Summer Games in August 2022.  Here is a link to a video clip captured by an audience member that day, during Mike’s drum solo and our rendition of The Beatles, “Sargent Pepper’s Reprise”:
