Beatlejuice is a New England-based Beatles cover band that featured Brad Delp, former front-man of the band Boston on vocals. Beatlejuice has the distinction of faithfully reproducing Beatles music note-for-note, from early Beatles to late Beatles, without costumes or stage gimmicks.

Biography[edit]

Beatlejuice began in 1994 when John Muzzy and Brad Delp saw Bob Squires' Beatles cover band Merseyside play in Newburyport, Massachusetts and they decided to start their own band. Beatlejuice played regularly at venues throughout New England until lead singer Brad Delp passed away on March 9, 2007 at his home in Atkinson, New Hampshire at the age of 55.

Beatlejuice is currently[when?] performing under the name Beatlejuice and Friends. It began as a series of shows at the Regent Theatre in Arlington, MA as a memorial concert to Brad Delp. Beatlejuice and Friends now plays regularly. Some performers include Jimmy Rogers of Velvet Elvis, and Mike Girard of The Fools. Dave Mitchell, the guitarist in the band, works as a guitar teacher in Nashua, New Hampshire. Beatlejuice is occasionally joined onstage by Joe Holaday's sons: Jared, who plays saxophone, and P.J., who plays drums.
