ABOUT

I’m Axel, Axellent33 in the game and pretty much all over social media ????. I’m from Plymouth, Massachusetts but currently living in Alexandria, Virginia. I’m a professional trained musician, singer, actor and songwriter. I’m a total metalhead ???????????????????????????????? but I do enjoy all kinds of rock music from its roots with Jerry Lee Lewis, Elvis and The Beatles. As a huge Beatles fan and musician, my greatest accomplishment was to play at the original Cavern Club in Liverpool also the Casbah and the Jacaranda for many years, which are the clubs where The Beatles played for 2 years before they jumped to stardom. I also recorded an original song in Abbey Road Studio 2, the same studio where they recorded most of their albums. I met Ringo Starr and played 3 shows with Pete Best, their original drummer before Ringo replaced him. I’ve played professionally for 22 years in more than 20 countries. I liked Liverpool so much that I applied for a student visa and I graduated from the University of Liverpool and from the Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts, and, yes, I had a total English accent when I came back home ????????. I’m currently recovering from a very rough time in my life after I was diagnosed with MS I lost everything I had and literally ended up homeless, living in shelters for 2 years. I secured my current apartment a year and a half ago. I’m doing much much better but I still ride the bus because I don’t have a car, so my mobility is limited.

I’m looking to form or join a Beatles tribute band (mainly but open to do covers of other 60’s and 70’s) to play for a living. Seasoned veteran musicians preferred.
