THE WEEKLINGS are America’s most unique tribute to the music of THE BEATLES.
The Weeklings like to say that they channel the music of The Beatles into explosive, note-for-note renditions of Beatles classics, uniquely-arranged Beatles nuggets such as “Paperback Writer” and “Baby, You’re A Rich Man” and brilliant Beatles-inspired original compositions.
The Weeklings channel the spirit and bold creativity of the 1960s, bringing The Beatles to life, not through costumes and gimmicks, but through their own brilliant musicianship and charming stage presence. They show their audiences both what The Beatles were, and what they might have been if they were performing today. Ladies and gentleman, it’s time to “Meet The Weeklings”.
The Weeklings feature Glen Burtnik aka “Lefty Weekling” (bass and vocals), Bob Burger aka “Zeek Weekling” (rhythm guitar and vocals), John Merjave aka “Rocky Weekling” (lead guitar and vocals) and Joe Bellia aka “Smokestack Weekling” (drums and vocals).
Glen Burtnik is a singer, songwriter, entertainer and multi-instrumentalist, best known for his work with Styx and Electric Light Orchestra. Burtnik appeared in the Broadway production of Beatlemania as Paul McCartney, and continues his love of The Beatles playing at national Beatle Festivals.
