Across the Universe has been called "one of the greatest Beatles shows" by Majic 102.7, South Florida's "Beatles Station", and has been featured on "Joe Johnson's Beatle Brunch" show, which is syndicated in over 120 markets across the country. The band has also been featured by Seaview Radio 95.9 and 106.9 in Palm Beach.
Unlike most other "tribute" bands, which usually consist of actors with instruments, Across the Universe members are professional studio and touring musicians who recreate the sound and energy of the original recordings as accurately as possible in a live setting. You won't find fake Beatle wigs, mustaches and beards here... only the raw energy of The Beatles classics brought to life note for note on stage in the original keys. The show includes selections of the Fab Four's music from their early days in Hamburg, Germany through the psychedelic period and beyond, performed as originally recorded and performed by the Beatles themselves.
Across the Universe performs at venues of all sizes, from private parties and nightclubs to theaters, amphitheaters and sports arenas. Their numerous sold-out concerts frequently break attendance records. They have been invited to perform multiple times at many popular festivals, including Fort Lauderdale's Great American Beach Party, The Pompano Beach Seafood Festival, The Lake Worth Heritage Festival, West Palm Beach Beer Fest, and many others. In addition, Across the Universe has appeared at world famous venues including BB King's Blues Club and The Bamboo Room, and performed for exclusive organizations like the PGA National Member's Club.
While new to the GigMasters site, Across the Universe has been touring and performing since 2009.

"Tom, Mitch and I want to thank you for a real good time. Man, that music brought me back. It was the music that Mitch and I dated to, the music that brought me through puberty, the music of my growing up. You even performed songs that brought me back to high school, when 7 of my friends crushed in to a 'recording booth' in an arcade in Times Square, and cut a copy of Help. Thanks again for the great music and great memories. We'll have to do it again."
-- Donna H.
"I was at your concert last night... You were fantastic. I've been to several of your concerts and really enjoy them... Thank you so much for your band! Having grown up with the Beatles' music, you touch strong emotional feelings in me. Between that and being able to dance along to your excellent music really feeds my soul."
-- Viveca P.
