The Beatnix

Powered by Audioscrobbler™There are two groups known as the Beatnix. Both are Beatles cover bands.

1) The Beatnix concept was conceived and assembled in March 1980 by founding member Tony Dean, rhythm guitarist and vocalist (now retired to full-time management) as a live performance entity. This puts it amongst the longest running Beatles Tribute Shows in the world. The Beatnix show includes fully authentic musical instruments similar to those used by The Beatles. These include very rare and valuable guitars by Gretsch, Hofner, Rickenbacker and Gibson, Vox AC30 guitar amplifiers and a Vox AC50 bass amplifier with a T60 bass cabinet. The drums are identical to the ones used by Ringo, a 1960's model Ludwig Black Oyster Pearl kit complete with Zildjian cymbals. This, combined with a range of early period Beatle costumes and the colourful Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band outfits, give you the complete Beatles experience.

2) The Beatnix was the name of a project started by members of the Beatels before that band was formally started. They recorded a well-known collection of Lennon/McCartney songs called It's Four You, which was released at a time when the original Beatles recordings of those songs had never been officially published. Although the front cover and spine of the CD release do not name a band, the Beatnix drum logo occupies a large portion of the back cover. Soon after the release of this album, the actual Beatles recordings were published as part of the Anthology project.

This band continues to tour as the Beatels, and has played internationally since 1996.
