The Return got its start back in 1995 when four young friends got together to play their favorite Beatles songs just for the fun of it. It wasn’t long before they played in front of an audience at the request of a friend and as it turned out, were very well received. That show—which was supposed to be a one time thing–led to another gig, which led to another and so on until the band found themselves playing on a regular basis. They decided to go ahead and make it official. They named themselves the Roaches.
Today the band still strives to maintain the utmost level of authenticity in their show. In fact, they are known for it. They’ve played thousands of shows—theatres, festivals, fairs, casinos, cruise ships, colleges and universities, weddings, birthday parties, bar mitzvahs–as well as countless corporate events for companies like Coca Cola, ABC, Hard Rock Cafe, and Volkswagen International–and the reaction is the same every time. People are amazed at how much The Return sounds and looks just like the Beatles.
