This catchy name is given to the show led by Howie Casey, who performed on tour with Wings and appeared on their albums.
He’d met the Beatles many years previously when Howie and his group at the time, the Seniors, were playing in Germany and Paul McCartney and the other members of the Beatles were playing at the same venue. They used to jam together for fun.
Also from Liverpool, saxophonist Howie returned to the UK and moved to London. He worked as a session musician for the likes of Chuck Berry, Marc Bolan, Elkie Brooks and the Who. Howie was later asked to help with an album for Paul McCartney called Band on the Run, did a tour with Paul and Wings and appeared on further albums.
Howie moved to Bournemouth in 1979, where he still lives. He will be performing his Wings and Beatles tribute show with his band at the Barrington Theatre in Ferndown on 3 September. The Barrington Centre and mags4dorset have teamed up for this competition for two tickets to see the show. For your chance to win, just answer the following question:
