I agree with this one! That'd be cool cuz I've seen a couple tribute bands that I really like! Especially British Export! [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

Doubt there'd be much of a call. We've had a number of threads about tribute bands and they die off pretty quickly, so I wouldn't think there would be enough interest to keep a whole forum going. But I always enjoy discussing them, so don't hesitate to start another topic or dredge up an old one, if you so choose! [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Hi there! Thanks--I'm glad you like my idea. I saw a bunch of the best Beatle Bands at the Abbey Road on the River Festival last year---including British Export. They were GREAT and will be returning to the festival this year. It's wonderful to see Beatle Bands from out-of-state that you aren't able to see usually. I live near 1964 the Tribute, and have seen them many times--awesome show!!!

Are you familiar with any other Beatle Bands?

P.S. Anyone interested in trading tribute band videos (VHS)?

I'm definitely not interested in adding a tribute band forum. And my reason is pretty simple. I cannot begin to describe how immature many fans of these bands are. Almost every day, I have to sift through ridiculous reviews of the bands on the main site, deleting obvious attempts by jealous fans to reduce the rankings of rival bands. If I miss a review and it gets posted, e-mails pour in from webmasters complaining of bogus reviews. It's really sad to me. Speaking of bogus reviews, you also see fan after fan after fan rating their favorite band a 10 over and over to pad the rankings. I mean, do we really believe that hundreds of people think every tribute band rates a 10 out of 10?

I've seen the Fab Four a few times, and I truly enjoyed the show. But the last thing I want to do is provide a separate forum for the fans to do their work. Feel free to post about tribute bands in one of the existing forums.

I'm sorry, Jerry. I understand the problems that would create for you now, and I didn't anticipate them when I suggested the idea. I'm new to Beatlelinks, so I'm not aware of a lot of ideas that have been tried in the past.

Marty

I spose you have a point there....

in answer to your question, martymusic, I've seen Beatlemania, and I just saw 1964 a few weeks ago. Both I thought were very good. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Hi LennonLuvr9,
In Ohio I've also seen Beatlemania Live, Beatlemania Yesterday & Today, Hard Day's Night, Yesterday, BackBeat, Abbey Road, and the Beetles. These are in addition to the bands at the Abbey Rd. Festival. I also collect tribute band videos, so I know some of the bands are better than others. 1964 is great, but I also like the bands that do the Beatles later material.
