THE BACKBEATS

Back Beats

Using authentic instruments, clothing, and hairstyles, The BackBeats transport their audiences on a Magical Mystery Tour of yesteryear, when the whole world first heard the four names of John, Paul, George and Ringo.  The BackBeats is proud to be the only Michigan-based Beatles show to have had sponsorship by both of the major classic rock Detroit radio stations (FM 104.3 and FM 94.7) and also by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland. In 2009, when The Beatles released their highly anticipated video game “Beatles: RockBand”, it was The BackBeats that were hired to represent The Beatles for the release of the game in the Michigan market. The BackBeats members have traveled the globe performing with various Beatle tribute shows, from The Cavern Club in Liverpool to the famed Carnegie Hall in NYC, and it’s members have opened for such acclaimed international acts as The Beach Boys, The Zombies, Leon Russell, America, Jefferson Starship, Vanilla Fudge, and Peter Noone of Herman’s Hermits, among others and have shared the stage with several members of Paul McCartney’s former band, “Wings.”  The BackBeats methodology has always been that although no one can deny the importance of recreating the music with note-for-note accuracy, it’s the presentation of the material, the ability to keep the audiences dancing, clapping, and laughing that has always made the band stand out amongst the scores of tribute bands around the world.
