The Toppermost Beatles tribute has been entertaining fans across the region for five years, and each year they have been the most booked tribute act in the state.
This Sunday, Toppermost will be performing 2:30-5:30 p.m. at , 6805 Mast Road, and the band invites everyone to come out and sing and dance to some of the best music ever made.
Toppermost performs a family friendly, interactive and exciting show that appeals to all ages, and this is a special year because it is the 50th anniversary of the Beatles.
Toppermost co-founder and lives in Dexter.
"Toppermost is a tribute to the most popular band in the world," Diab said. "So many people like the Beatles that it has given us more work than we can handle, in fact we had to turn down a dozen requests this season because our schedule is so packed."
The members of the Toppermost Beatles tribute are Ron Lockhart as George, a co-founder from Farmington; Ray Steinberg as Ringo from Farmington Hills; and Tony Iadipaolo as John from Livonia. Toppermost has appeared on Detroit TV stations ABC and Fox 2 and Detroit radio stations WOMC 104.3 FM and WCSX 94.7 FM and more across the state.
"We try to stay within a two-hour drive time radius from our homes because we are all family men," Diab said.
However, they have been coaxed to travel further distances on occasion. They have performed before the Paul McCartney concert at Comerica last summer and opened for acts such as Chaka Kahn and the Gin Blossoms.
"It really is an honor to open before such wonderful acts but we prefer to have the focus on our show since it is a concert and performance in one," Diab said.
This year Toppermost has about 50 shows scheduled and their calendar can be viewed at www.toppermost.info.
