BIOGRAPHY

Liverpool/Syracuse NY based Paul Davie is one of Central NY's most-traveled musicians!

In 2001 Paul formed a Beatles/British Invasion act, THE FAB FIVE with 4 other local all-star musicians known for their passion towards the band that changed the world on CBS-TV's Ed Sullivan Show on February 9, 1964.  

Paul could never have predicted, that his burning desire for the Beatles tribute genre, would lead to working personally with dozens of his 60’s & 70’s vinyl & AM pop radio heroes he grew up listening to!  (Scroll down to see the long list below!) 

 

With that, he has experienced performances as far away as Liverpool UK, Los Angeles, Chicago, Pittsburgh, Cleveland, The Iridium in Manhattan (Les Paul's Monday night residency) and a 3 week tour of Australia - from Perth to Sydney!
 

Paul’s efforts have also been featured in Newsweek magazine (50th anniversary of The Beatles issue - 2014), CBS Sunday Morning, 9WSYR's "Bridge Street Live" (10x) and on most CNY area radio & TV stations and news outlets in print and on-line.
 

In between living those dreams, Paul has a full schedule of 150+/- solo/duo/trio acoustic gigs all over upstate NY – Syracuse, the Finger Lakes & Lake Ontario Wine Trails, the 1000 Islands Region and more. He also entertains at weddings & receptions, veterans hospitals, senior living centers, libraries and birthday parties. 

In 2005, Paul took the 25 years of lessons learned in the non-profit and radio/TV industries, and created his own music & event production business - “My Generation Music Promotions”.  He puts on several shows a year, including BeatleCUSE, Homeward Bound Harmonies, Heroes & Lennon's 75th and various collaborative tribute shows with top CNY musicians.
