Fresh on the heels of their first Grammy nomination for "Fab Fan Memories - The Beatles Bond", the Nashville-based Beatles tribute band The WannaBeatles has launched a spirited campaign to meet Sir Paul at the Grammys in Hollywood on Feb. 12. The campaign includes the release of their new song and video, "We Wanna Meet Paul".
"We are so excited to be at the same show as Paul," said bandleader and two-time Grammy winner Dennis Scott. "Our little album has made it to the Grammys against all odds," Scott added. "This may be our one and only chance to meet Paul McCartney and, on behalf of the fans, thank him for the music that changed our lives."
The WannaBeatles received their first Grammy nomination in December as the producers of "Fab Fan Memories - The Beatles Bond", a CD featuring songs, stories, recollections and fond thoughts about The Beatles from celebrities and everyday fans. The project is nominated in the "Best Spoken Word Album" category. The audio book also features narration by George Harrison's older sister, Louise Harrison, performances by The Liverpool Legends of Branson, Mo., and of course performances by The WannaBeatles themselves.
"Our album is all about the fans," said Scott. The CD is available at iTunes at: http://bit.ly/FabFanCD
"If we meet Paul, it will be a victory for 'Fab Fans' everywhere."
