The Weeklings Present New Video “In The Moment”

“In The Moment” is the new song and video from The Weeklings, and it’s yet another standout track in the world of Beatle-inspired power pop. Like many others, The Weeklings have immersed themselves in ‘60s magic, but the band twists the past with a unique ability to reconstruct the influences of the masters in a way that sounds exciting and fresh, as well as catchy and familiar. The ethos of The Weeklings is to carry on the legacy of tight song construction, which they execute with passionate performances of bright melodies and harmonies punctuated by shimmering guitars and adventurous bass and drums.

All four members of The Weeklings are musicians that have excelled among the foremost students of the power of The Beatles. Lefty Weekling (Glen Burtnik), Zeek Weekling (Bob Burger), Rocky Weekling (John Merjave), and Smokestack Weekling (Joe Bellia) came together as an offshoot of a series of Burtnik’s “Beatle Bash” shows, which walked through virtually all of The Beatles’ LP releases. With Burtnik and Burger having years under their belts as a Gold and Platinum awarded song writing duo, it was only natural that an original project would emerge. The Weeklings both pay tribute to the greatest power-pop group of all time and write and play original music that masterfully captures the soul and vibe of what is termed “Beatlesque”. Yes, The Weeklings are the rare band that can play Beatles compositions with astonishing fidelity to the source, and then segue into their own songs that match the intensity, inventiveness, and joy of the Fab Four. “In The Moment” accomplishes that goal: to be true to the sound and spirit of the British Invasion, but to also reflect this New Jersey-based band’s own quirky attitude.
