Better Than the Beatles is the brainchild of David Lowell. During the dark days of the COVID pandemic, David invited some of his old bandmates to get together and play music for people who would walk the Chattahoochee River trails below David’s home in Roswell. As fate would have it, David’s neighbor, who happened to own Lucky's Burgers & Brew, overheard the band. He liked the music so much that he asked David if they would play a concert at Lucky’s once the pandemic subsided. Several years later BTTB, is still going strong and plays regularly all over Atlanta. Better Than the Beatles is NOT a Beatles tribute band. The name is certainly tongue in cheek and all of the band members love the Beatles, but they also love playing other classic rock songs. The BTTB line-up is David Lowell on bass and vocals, Tommy Strain and Howard Shevitz on guitars and vocals, Nick D’Allen on keyboards and vocals, drummer Kenny Crysler, and David’s niece Ashley Zimmerman on vocals and percussion.

Upcoming gigs:

Dec. 8 - B&W Burger, Norcross  

Dec. 22 - Roaring Social, Alpharetta

The band has been together seven years and are regulars at Rock 'N' Taco and Roaring Social, Alive after 5, the Roswell Beer and Wine Fest and the Sunshine on a Ranney Day gala.
