      ......THE HISTORY..




      ..
      ....After several years of performing Top 40 covers in the NJ nightclub circuit, The Mahoney Brothers (then consisting of brothers Tim and Brian, along with two other childhood friends) began what would turn out to be a long unexpected career as “tribute artists” from a simple request of a NJ club owner in 1977...

      ..
      ........“Could you perform a full night of..music from just one artist?”....
      ..
      ....
      Although the band had to perform “Ticket To Ride” three times that night to fill the sets, The Mahoney Brothers (donned in ..Meet The Beatles.. style black turtlenecks) realized they had stumbled upon something special. They were immediately invited to return to the club for a number of performances that month and The Mahoney Brothers ....Long Live The Beatles.... show was born.

      ....
      By the fall of 1978, ..Long Live The Beatles.. growing reputation and ..a sold out show for 10,000 people at Six Flags Great Adventure brought the brothers to the attention of the producers of the Broadway Production ..Beatlemania..... The producers were blown away by the brothers’ attention to detail, including right-handed guitarist Tim who had recently taught himself to play bass left-handed to accurately portray Paul McCartney. An offer was made to Brian and Tim to audition for the roles of John Lennon and Paul McCartney respectively. The brothers passed the audition and soon began daily rehearsals on Broadway for their debut on the “White Way”.

      ....
      While Tim and Brian were still in rehearsals in 1979, ..Beatlemania.. closed on Broadway. But the brothers wasted no time and secured themselves a multi-year deal for ..Long Live The Beatles.. with Six Flags Entertainment, enlisting youngest brother Mike on the drums as “Ringo” along the way. ..The show was performed for an estimated three million people at the Six Flags parks from 1979-1984...

      ....During this period the band would also often open for themselves, performing their own original music as the "warm-up" act for ..Long Live The Beatles... This led to the release of their first full-length original album ..Running Too Long.. in 1982, featuring the regional radio hit “Send Me A Photograph” and a note-for-note cover of The Beatles “Help!”. The brothers would also reach another milestone during this period becoming the first Beatles tribute band to recreate a Beatles concert at a major league baseball stadium, performing for more than ..37,000 rock n' roll and baseball fans at Philadelphia’s Veterans Stadium in 1980...

      ....
      After extensive touring in the U.S. and Canada in 1985, the brothers were asked to join the cast of the Las Vegas Show Of The Year, ....Legends In Concert..... The band accepted the offer and spent six months in 1986 headlining in ..Legends.. at Caesars Hotel And Casino in Atlantic City. ..Although The Beatles would later become a staple of ..Legends.., The Mahoney Brothers were the first Beatles act to join the production...

      ....
      As much as the band was enjoying performing the music of The Beatles, their time in ..Legends.. inspired the brothers to expand their musical impersonation act to include many of the other outstanding artists of the last fifty years of popular music. The result was the debut of ....Jukebox Heroes Live!.... in 1987.



      ....
      With the same attention to detail that marked their highly successful “Long Live The Beatles” production, the Mahoneys initially added tributes to such musical luminaries as Elvis Presley, The Beach Boys, Rick Nelson, The Everly Brothers, Jerry Lee Lewis and Buddy Holly. After several tours in the USA, “Jukebox Heroes Live” settled into a two-year residency beginning in 1990 at Six Flags Great Adventure's Music Box Theater, the same stage where years earlier they had performed to packed houses with "Long Live The Beatles".
      ....
      It was during this time that the Mahoney Brothers came to the attention of the Seattle-based veteran producer/director Greg Thompson. So impressed with the Mahoneys’ ability to reproduce a wide range of musical acts and styles, Thompson hired the brothers throughout the 1990's for a series of long term casino revues built around the “Jukebox Heroes Live” theme and The Mahoney Brothers' ever-growing roster of impersonations (now spanning more than 60 years of music, from the 1930's Benny Goodman to the 1990's Garth Brooks). The Greg Thompson productions included performances in Atlantic City, Gulfport, Seattle, starring roles in “Wolfman Jack's Rock & Roll Revue”, and partnering with Dick Clark for the 1996 smash hit show, “Dick Clark's Golden Age Of Television”.
      ....
      Prime-time appearances on The Disney Channel, The Family Channel, The Nashville Network, CBS's "A Busch Gardens/Sea World Summer Safari", and a performance for President Clinton at Hillary Clinton’s 30th High School Reunion were also some of the many highlights of “Jukebox Heroes Live” during the busy decade of the 1990’s.
      ....
      In between long term casino showroom engagements, the Mahoneys even managed to write, produce and record two critically acclaimed original country music albums, receiving airplay in twenty countries worldwide. Their single “Long Necks and Tall Tales” was a top forty hit on the worldwide country music indie charts in 1998.
      ....
      As “Jukebox Heroes Live” entered the new millennium, the Mahoney Brothers added even more time honored musical legends to their impersonation lineup. Neil Diamond, Willie Nelson, The Bee Gees, and "Jumpsuit Era" Elvis Presley have recently joined the long list of acts rotated into the show, still all performed by brothers Tim, Brian, and Mike. And in celebration of the 20th anniversary of "Jukebox Heroes Live", The Mahoney Brothers recently updated the production with a 3-video screen multi-media presentation, that teamed with the brothers' uncanny impersonations, transports the audience through more than half a century of music in 90 minutes.






      ....
      In the last twenty years, both ..Jukebox Heroes Live!.. and ..Long Live The Beatles.. have evolved into full multi-media spectaculars, bringing the brothers (joined by the multi-talented Jay Swanson as “George Harrison”) all over the globe. ..From crowds of 80,000+ at Giants Stadium and Disney’s Epcot Center, to multiple sold-out casino performances at The Borgata in Atlantic City and The Biloxi Grand in Mississippi, to national TV appearances on Entertainment Tonight and MTV, the band has captivated audiences young and old for more than 30 years and shows no signs of stopping anytime soon...
