They were also featured in a PBS special of the same name; the soundtrack to which is listed in the discography. 1964 the Tribute have been featured on Entertainment Tonight, PM Magazine, CNN, The USA Network, and The Nashville Network.
While touring worldwide at concert halls, fairs, festivals, colleges, corporate events, and conventions, they were voted "Best Major Concert Act" and "Best Contemporary Act" by the readers of Campus Activities Today Magazine. They were also voted "Contemporary Music Artists of the Year" by the National Association for Campus Activities, and "Campus Entertainers of the Year" by the Canadian Association for Campus Activities. They have appeared on scores of local television and radio programs throughout the United States, Canada, Europe, and South America.
The group plans to continue performing in the future. When asked about their future, Tom Work said, "The answer to that is the answer Gary gave his dad. His dad asked him, 'How long are you going to do this?' And Gary said, 'Until they stop coming.' We are not anywhere close to the age the Beatles were. I'm sure many people will comment, 'They're starting to look a little old to be doing this,' but people are still coming. Just being a musician keeps you young at heart."
