The Fab Four is a California-based tribute band paying homage to The Beatles. Founded in 1997 by Ron McNeil—John Lennon impersonator and President of The Fab Four Corp—the group began performing Beatles music throughout southern California. They have brought the music of the Beatles to many places worldwide, including Japan, Malaysia, France, Hong Kong, The United Kingdom, Germany, Australia, Mexico and Brazil, covering nearly the entire Beatles songbook, in addition to the Beatles' solo material. The band’s beginnings included Tuesday night performances at a small venue called Music City in Fountain Valley, as well as regular performances at Disneyland's Tomorrowland Terrace in Anaheim, The Hop in Puente Hills and Scruffy O’Sheas in Marina del Rey. The core group consists of McNeil (John Lennon), along with Ardy Sarraf (Paul McCartney), Michael Amador (George Harrison) and Rolo Sandoval (Ringo Starr). Since their humble beginnings, the group has gone onto perform at locations such as the Las Vegas Hilton, The Aladdin, and The Sahara, as well as receive an Emmy Award in 2013 for their PBS special "The Fab Four: The Ultimate Tribute," filmed at Pechanga Resort & Casino.
