Biography

The Beatnix Show includes fully authentic musical instruments identical to those used by The Beatles.

It was February 1980, 10 months before the untimely death of John Lennon, that Australia and possibly the world's, first tribute show THE BEATNIX was conceived and produced by Tony Dean - founding member and now owner/manager.
Coming from a Show Band background, popular in the 1970's and touring Australia wide, Tony was used to playing covers including Beatles, Doobie Brothers, Beach Boys, Hollies, Bee Gees, & Eagles, all great harmony groups, plus songs directly from the top twenty hit parade but then "Punk" came along and it was out of the question to play that style of music.

It was suggested we play more Beatles music, everybody loves The Beatles. From that simple suggestion Tony thought "lets play only Beatles songs", hence the first tribute show was conceived.

Originally put together for a four week season in Perth, Western Australia, the shows proved so popular that after 18 months it was decided to make the move to Sydney where the show is now based and is available to travel worldwide.

 

The first half of The Beatnix one and a half hour Show captures the excitement and atmosphere of The Beatles early concerts. Featuring all the classic instruments and the typical 60's period outfits showcasing songs such as Twist and Shout, I Want to Hold Your Hand, A Hard Days Night, I Feel Fine and She Loves You.

The second half of the show sees an impressive change of colour and mood set by the legendary Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band costumes and includes songs from the most significant album in Rock History. The trip continues along Penny Lane to include songs from all the later albums. Everybody sings along all night!
