Music that matters

Lauren Passarelli, lead guitarist and backing vocalist, has been with the band for four months. She said the band found her on the Internet, and that as the Beatles professor in the guitar department at Berklee College of Music, she also toured with a Beatles tribute band for 12 years, and has hundreds of videos on YouTube.

“All Beatle music is important to me. The Beatles taught me everything about music, life, optimism, humor, and connection,” Passarelli said. “Celebrating the moments that fill our time, and making them extraordinary by caring and investing ourselves, the Beatles gave the world permission to dream, desire, to wake up and be conscious, and use our power for the good. ” Read More...

Passarelli — whose favorite Beatle is George Harrison, added, “I am forever grateful that I was on the planet when all four Beatles were here. I’ve loved them since, ‘Please Please Me,’ in 1963. It was heartbreaking when The Beatles broke up in 1970. I was 10 years old, and so I was thrilled that they made solo albums. That was how they continued and how I could continue and grow with them.”

She observed, “AfterFab is an amazing idea and such a cool, band for me. Many of these songs and guitar parts I had never played before, so I’m programming the right sounds, and working out the parts and having tremendous fun being a part of this group. Bryan, Mike, Tom, Jon, and Adam are great guys and it’s a blast to recreate these masterpieces with them.”
