Decent Tribute Bands?
« on: March 13, 2010, 12:44:33 PM »

Hi there, I was hoping some of you active beatles fans could help me with a problem i have? I manage a bar in Harrogate, North Yorks and would really like a Beatles tribute band for St George's day this year. I've looked at a couple of agencies and been quoted HUGE money! Just wondering if anyone on here knew of any bands that might be more attainable?
Thanks for taking time to read this, hope you can help.

Haha! They look very good! North Yorkshire might be a bit of a trek tho i fear? If not, please let me know! We can offer a reet good night, but fame and fortune may be a bit much for us to guarantee.
Thanks for you reply.

Hi.
You could try this lot.....

http://www.beatlemaniacsonline.com

I saw them years ago in Newcastle and they were excellent.
Haven't seen them around on the local circuit for a while though - from their website it looks like they might be doing more theatre-type shows now.
Worth dropping them an e-mail though since they are based in Teeside (I think) so fairly local to you.

Thanks for you reply.
Possibly a bit of a trek for the budget (Isle of Wight to Portsmouth is the 2nd most expensive stretch of water in the world apparently) but thanks for looking and if we are ever stringing a couple of dates off our Island, be good to know what reet good nights are out there on t'mainland.
Best of luck on your search. :)

The Apple Beatle has the best Beatles cover band i've ever heard. Seriously. I dont know if Rick has a webpage, but they are seriously good.

I'm out of touch on what cover bands are about now.  I used to watch the Paperback Beatles a lot in the mid-90s.  They were a really tight band.

Bootleg Beatles
« Reply #10 on: April 25, 2011, 01:32:16 PM »

I saw the Bootleg Beatles in Bournemouth a month or so back. I knew they obviously would not be as good as the real thing and thought I would leave disappointed. I was right they were not as good as the real thing but I did not leave disappointed.They were excellent the vocals, instruments  and costumes a very good show indeed. Has anyone else seen them? If so what did you think?

This probably does not help, but "The Fab Four" are my absolute favorite cover band. They are awesome. I can not express how good they are. I have seen at least 50 Beatles bands. The Fab Four are THE best. I think they are better than "Beatlemania" was in the late '70s/early '80s. I saw Beatlemania and they were good. Fab Four are excellent.

The Beats from Argentina were recognized as the best Beatles tribute band in the world some years ago. I saw them live once and they are really great. But I guess this won't help too much.

The Beats was born in 1987 thanks to its two founders, Patricio and Diego PĂ©rez.  In the year 1996, it was recognized as THE BEST BEATLE BAND IN THE WORLD by the Beatles Annual Convention from London and Liverpool. They have been praised by Allan Williams in England (first manager of the Beatles) who said: "They sounded even better than the Beatles when I took them to Hamburg" and Alistair Taylor (Brian Epstein’s personal assistant) who said: "It looks as if the Beatles were born again". Furthermore, they were recognized with important articles in the British newspapers Daily Post and Liverpool Echo.

They seem to be pretty good, but they have an Latino accent.

Ah, sure, losing the latino accent may be hard I guess. I don't notice it since I have latino accent too. :)

Last year I passed up on the opportunity to see them but I regretted it.This year I made sure i went and fantastic they were too. Glad i saw them before the legend that is Neil Harrison left. But he had played John for 31 years so you can't really blame him. Like he said " After playing John for 31 years it's time too pass over the wig and glasses to someone younger". I'm sure  the new John will be good but he will have some hard shoes to fill. I will check out your forum as a priority.

Oh I'm gutted that Neil Harrison left! I didn't know this before. Luckily I got to see tham last December and at the end he came on and did a solo acoustic version of "Happy Xmas (War Is Over)". It was brilliant and made a nice change from him doing "Imagine"!
