Stan Bullock was 9 years old when he first saw The Beatles perform on "The Ed Sullivan Show."
"I had just turned 9 and my grandma, who was really cool, was in town. She said, 'You've got to watch The Beatles.' And I remember asking, 'What are Beatles?'" he said with a laugh.
That performance hooked Bullock on the music and the band.
He first traveled to Liverpool, England, in 1999. He met a tailor there who now designs the jackets worn in his band, Wonderwall The Tribute. He also is a regular performer on the Abbey Road on the River, a five-day festival which honors The Beatles. For the last 13 years, Bullock has performed the festival with his daughter, Amanda Bullock Sykes, as the band, Never Mind the Bullocks.
Wonderwall The Tribute will return to The Liberty Showcase Theater, 101 S. Fayetteville St., Liberty, at 7 p.m. Saturday.
Bullock plays drums and sings a lot of the lead vocals. The band also includes Chuck Martin on keyboards and lead guitar; Doug Dennis on bass; and Marcus Horth, who is from England, on guitar.
Martin, Bullock said, "is the Paul to my John."
Dennis is founding member of Brice Street Band and Horth, Bullock said, "is a full-time musician and a gifted guitarist."
The band takes its name from the film, "Wonderwall," for which The Beatles' George Harrison composed a soundtrack.
"We really pay attention to the original sound of The Beatles," Bullock said.
The band dresses like The Beatles, too, and brings a lot of energy to its shows.
No matter where the band performs, there's going to be folks "mouthing and singing along to The Beatles' songs," Bullock said. "It's just amazing."
