The McCartney Years is a note-for-note reproduction of the famous singer’s peak musical career in the early 1970s – every song is played live with nothing pre-recorded. Joined by Karen Bell as Linda McCartney, David Usselman as Denny Laine, Braden DeCooman as Jimmy McCullough, and rounded out by Darryl Lahteenmaa (vocals and keyboard) and Aaron Guevarra (drums), Yuri Pool is the man himself, who leads a stunning and sonically explosive show.

Pool’s work in The McCartney Years has been praised by Beatles promoter Sid Bernstein as “the best on the scene today…” Whether he’s playing a real McCartney-era Höfner or emulating the same wardrobe from the Wings over America mid-70s tour, Yuri is true to Sir Paul in his vocal stylings and presentation on tracks like “Live and Let Die”, “Let it Be”, “The Long and Winding Road” and “Jet”.
