A Leek musician has a new show for 2014 and will be officially launching his new act this month in the Staffordshire Moorlands.

Rob Wheeler is a singer, multi-instrumentalist, writer and producer with 16 years of gigging experience – he is also a huge fan of The Beatles.

And it is his love for this iconic band that has influenced Rob into creating his one-man tribute act of 'The Beatle'.

Rob, aged 32, said: "Producing this one man Beatles show has been a labour of love for me.

"It's been hard work sourcing all the original guitars and equipment, building the tracks so I can perform the songs accurately without the additional three band members on stage, even growing a "Beatle mop top" hair cut.

"But the Beatles are and always will be my favourite band, they are such wonderful songs, it's a privilege to play them."

Rob, who is an accomplished guitarist, bass player, and drummer, has an "uncanny knack" for impersonating voices, added: "I'm still writing and producing my own music too."

Rob's 'The Beatle' show runs for two hours and features costumes and guitars relating to each wonderful creative period the band went through. Rob's set includes many of the Beatle's hits such as: Hey Jude, Help, A Hard Day's Night, Yesterday, Ticket To Ride, Day Tripper, I Feel Fine, From Me To You, Hello Goodbye, Please Please Me, Can't Buy Me Love, Twist & Shout, plus many more.

Rob is currently travelling the country with his new Beatles act including to as far as London and Plymouth.

However he will be officially launching his new act in the Staffordshire Moorlands this month.

He will be at The Master Potter, Tean Road in Cheadle on Saturday, March 29.
