When it comes to playing the best of classic pop and rock, we pretty much do it all. In fact, we have done it all, performing Monkees, Beatles, Kinks, Who, Rolling Stones, Byrds and British Invasion tribute shows from New York City to Cleveland to Louisville to Liverpool. Although we'll play pretty much anywhere (within reason!), we're based in New York City, New Jersey and eastern Pennsylvania.
Although you'd never know it by looking at our eternally (and alarmingly) youthful mugs, most of us Meanies have been hanging out together since we were kids in the Seventies — and playing music together since August 11, 1984, when Jonathan Winters, Sid Caesar and Phil Silvers still roamed the earth.
This October, while other bands will be sipping pumpkin spice lattes, harvesting tree sap, admiring foliage and fashioning crude moccasins from tree bark, we'll be performing at the 2023 Beatlesfestivalen in Bergen, Norway, a city that — as every little schoolboy knows — was founded in 1070 by King Olav Kyrre.
