BACKBEAT is four mates from Victoria, BC. Four pretty fab guys who live and breathe the most exciting decade in music history. The boys have been thrilling audiences since 1988 with their loving and most authentic musical tribute to the ’60s.
Students of music, casual listeners and fans of all ages know all these songs. In fact, many of them have been singing them since they were school kids when things were so much simpler and memories were being made.
BACKBEAT honors the music honors the memories with an uncanny sense and sensibility for each and every song on the repertoire which by the way is substantial to say the least. From the Beatles to The Zombies and everything in between, these are the songs you remember, the way they were played, absolutely live. For BACKBEAT, it’s all about paying homage to these great artists and this incredible catalog of music.
The guys are all experts at their craft, honing their chops on dusty stages and in smoky cabarets all across the country for over 4 decades. In fact, collectively and singularly each of these artists has graced the stage with some of the world’s foremost artists including Sheena Easton, Celine Dion, Loverboy, Fee Waybill, Nigel Olsson, Honeymoon Suite, Steven Tyler, and David Foster…yes, THAT David Foster. BACKBEAT has also been a featured opening act for Trooper and 54-40, two of Canada’s most successful artists.
BACKBEAT, authentic… genuine and honest just like the music they play. It’s been quite the journey, hasn’t it? From a small noisy dank cavern in Liverpool to 50,000 screaming fans at Shea Stadium and beyond, BACKBEAT lets you re-live every moment, every memory and the most amazing decade in music history. A splendid time is guaranteed for all!
