The Lonely Hearts Club
The Lonely Hearts Club is a Seattle-based band playing the Music of The Beatles. From their early hits, thru the layered orchestration of the Sgt. Pepper era, to the fan-favorite deep cuts, this group covers all phases of the Fab Four’s incredible career. Fantastic musicianship, amazing harmonies, and a great rapport with the audience ensures that you will have a great time at any Lonely Hearts Club show.
The Lonely Hearts Club is NOT a look-alike Beatles band…..the emphasis is on what matters: The Music.
However, they replicate album-quality renditions of the Beatles’ biggest hits and B-Sides. From “Twist and Shout”, “A Hard Day’s Night”, and “Help” to “Nowhere Man”, “Taxman”, and “Penny Lane”, all the way to “Come Together”, “Here Comes the Sun” and “Something”. If you love the Beatles, you’ll LOVE The Lonely Hearts Club!

“Great night, great musicians, great music and singing. This old granny loved it. Thanks guys.”
|George Lindholm – Lead Vocals / Random Instruments. A life-long die-hard Beatle fan, George has organized two Beatle-themed musical benefits (called “Come Together”) to raise money for Malawi Africa. The events allowed a local team of volunteers to put on mobile medical clinics, serving thousands of Malawians needing basic medical care. These events were the genesis of the LHC. He’s been a performing vocalist for many years, including singing Big Band classics with the Moonlight Swing Orchestra, and a wide range of musical work with his church in Marysville.|
|Jeff Swanson – Keyboards / Vocals. An experienced veteran of the local music scene, Jeff has played in many classic rock / pop bands including Deuces Wild, Trax, Indy Nile, and most recently with the Bill Mattocks Band & Billy Appleton Group. Originally a drummer, Jeff now handles piano, keyboards, and backing vocals for the Lonely Hearts Club. A huge Beatles fan from the beginning, he considers it a privilege to play with these talented, experienced musicians to recreate & perform songs from the Beatles catalog as accurately as possible.|
|Steve Swanson – Lead Vocals / Keyboards. Steve has a long performance history as part of the Seattle music community. Steve began his formal musical journey as a vocal music major at Pacific Lutheran University and was a founding member of the iconic disco band Deuces Wild, the classic rock band The Hooters, and still plays in The Flock of Beagles, The Jimmy Vegas Band, and Stevens Rocket.|
|Tom Brighton – Guitars / Vocals. Tom has been a fixture in the Seattle-area music scene for many years, and his Warner Records band Russia has opened for Journey, Pat Travers, Humbie Pie, Black Sabbath, and Cheap Trick. He has performed with former Yes and John Lennon drummer Alan White, and his songwriting compositions have been featured on television shows.|
|Chris Hagen – Bass Guitar / Vocals. In addition to Beatles music, Chris enjoys performing rock, blues, country, and jazz. He has played in numerous Seattle-based bands…most notably the Olson Brothers, a country-blues gospel group that has opened for Marshall Tucker, Garth Brooks, Clint Black, the Desert Rose Band, and K. T. Oslin.|
|Kent Stalter – Drums / Vocals / Keyboards. Kent started his musical career studying classical piano (and Ringo’s drumming) as a youth, and has since had a long career in the Seattle area as a drummer and keyboardist. He has played power pop with The Radios, Hendrix music in Power of Soul, and classic rock in Heggy Cheek and Indy Nile. Most importantly, he’s LHC’s final “go-to” in case there is any question about a Beatles musical detail, harmony, or nuance.|
|Richard McCormick – Guitars. Richard has been playing in Seattle and Vancouver, BC bands for the past few decades, and he deserves much of the credit for sparking the idea for the Lonely Heart Club. His spontaneous Beatle guitar riffs in the middle of church band rehearsals with George and Jeff would typically launch into a full song. “You know, we should just do a Beatles thing sometime” was a common refrain among us.|
