Caught Live: The BeatBack Brothers

#171: Hello ... Hello ... my old friends ... It's great to see you once again! We had the great pleasure last night of [at long last] witnessing a gig by The BeatBack Brothers at the Goodrich Club here in Winterful Wolverhampton for my last musical musing of 2010. The set last night [Friday 17th December] was varied and the guys produced a great show that paid tribute to the original artists but at the same time displayed their own skills and personality. In particular, I was impressed not only with their covers of those Beatles classics but also of Wings and Paul McCartney songs amongst many others. It was a fantastic Christmassy evening and it was my great pleasure to re-meet Craig and also meet his BeatBack Bro Adam.

The BeatBack Brothers are Craig Whale [Guitar/Vocals] and Adam Willetts [Keyboards/Vocals]. With great skill, they cover classic songs by the likes of ELO, The Beatles, Wings and T.Rex et al:

I look forward to hearing their take on ELO classics "Do Ya" and "Evil Woman". Me thinx also that they are well suited to covering those seminal Jeff Lynne songs: "Hold On Tight", "Rock 'n' Roll Is King" and "Calling America". I am also looking forward to seeing TBBB again  - maybe even their cover of "Battle Of Marston Moor [July 2nd 1644]" - only joking folks!

Hence whether you be a pub, club or other entertainment venue here in the [West] Midlands of England or if you are planning an event, then take it as read that Yours Truly KJS and ELO Beatles Forever [ELOBF] reckon that you give these talented individuals an opportunity to rock your house and - naturally - your customers too!

Until next "Time" in the ELO [and related] Universe ... KJS ... 18-Dec-2010


  1. Have been following these guys for some time, and as "Old Rhythm & Blues Guitarist from the late 50's early 60's" I've always thought they were two of the most talented musicians I'd seen for some time, although events overtook life and I couldn't make this show your review is as accurate as you can get. Hope to see you soon at one of Phils shows or Roy Wood etc. :-)
    Thank You Keith.

  2. I aim to support these guys as much as possible Geoff. Thanx for your kind comments. Keith JS.
