The Vox Beatles


Digger asked Mike at the south coast's premier Beatles Tribute Band, The Vox Beatles a few questions.

Digger: What is your background Mike and what prompted the formation of The Vox Beatles?

Mike: I've been a mad Beatles fan for years (just like millions of others) and have a massive love of 50s/60's music. My brother John and I have been playing in 60's cover bands since the 80's, most successfully with the Fourbeats which was pro/semi-pro for over 15 years. We were playing alongside the likes of Dave Berry & The Cruisers, The Checkmates, etc. Last year we (me & John) parted company with a pub/social club band, and it was the best thing that ever happened to us. We met a couple of great musicians & Beatles nuts and away we went!!...

Digger: For those not in the know Mike, where does the name come from?

Mike: The name The Vox Beatles came about because ....we wanted to form a Beatles tribute band, and you can't just call yourself The Beatles. So Vox means voice in Latin (so I'm told) and also because the Beatle amps were made by J.M.I. and were called Vox.

Digger: What does the music of The Beatles and the sixties mean to you?

Mike: Almost everything.

Digger: How hard is it to reproduce authentically the look and sound of The Beatles?








Mike: It's bloody hard on both accounts. We are never going to have there facial looks.... we are older for one thing!! But we try as hard as we can to sound as close as we can, plus we have most of the early stage gear so we are well on the way..........

Digger: What can people expect at one of your gigs and what would be a typical playlist?

Mike: We hope to take them back to the early 60's for a couple of hours of some of the best music ever written played completely live. Plus some great 60's guitars, amps etc. to look at and to listen to. Also our playlist of lots of early hits with some singles and LP tracks. We will be adding later material next year.

Digger: What sort of feedback and comments are you getting from audiences?

Mike: Mostly very good. We are asked to play return gigs at 95% of places we have played....I must remember to put all our feedback on our website!!

Digger: Mike, what are the most enjoyable aspects of running The Vox Beatles?

Mike: For me personally to be with like-minded Beatle people in and out of the band.

Digger: Why is retro and nostalgia such a big thing in so many people's lives these days, including the new generations?

Mike: Because, without looking through rose tinted specs, I think the past is a safe comfort place that cannot be changed. Memories. It wasn't all good, no, but life was less plastic then. More freedom (thanks to our parents' generation) - almost free of traffic wardens, CCTV, health & safety etc. etc..........need  I say anymore?!!! Apart from please excuse my spelling!! Not all young people like all new things - some like old things as well.

Digger: Where would you like to see The Vox Beatles in two years' time Mike?

Mike: Please God we are playing bigger venues, more money, women screaming for us etc. etc... Really ....yes! All of that and more?
