Two of Us brings together a pair of top-notch singers whose passion for the music of The Beatles, and for the Lennon & McCartney singing and writing partnership, in particular, shines through in their performances.
Drew Harrison, singer-songwriter and leader of the premier San Francisco area Beatles tribute band, The Sun Kings, lends the uncanny vocals that have earned him critical acclaim as one of the best John Lennon interpreters in the world, capturing not only the sound, but the nuance and emotion rarely achieved by others, and without mimicry. A musician since he was 15, he also authentically conveys the detail, sound and spirit of Lennon's rhythm guitar playing, so important to the Beatles' overall sound, and has an effusive and genuine enthusiasm for the music and for performing, and an ability to move people through song that has led him to great success, not only in The Beatles arena, but with his own music as well.
The clear voice of James Funk is likewise eerily like the man whose songs he sings in Two of Us. Like Drew, a fan of The Beatles since he was a child (favoring Paul McCartney and always playing his tennis racket, aka his “guitar,” left-handed), he's been singing and playing the music since he was a teen, though by then on a real guitar. As a high school sophomore, Jim’s dreams of becoming a hockey pro were suddenly exchanged for a life in music after an impromptu a cappella sing-along of Beatles songs with some new (& drunken) friends one night in a frozen field accidentally informed him that he could sing better than he could skate. This led to learning that he could also write songs, eventually becoming a songwriter for Virgin Music, and now with a big catalog of his own songs inspired greatly by the Lennon & McCartney model.
Two presents a show of your favorite Lennon & McCartney songs performed acoustically, and their unparalleled blend of voices will amaze you. This is a must-not-miss!
