The Beatnix concept was conceived and assembled in March 1980 by founding member Tony Dean as a live performance entity. This puts it amongst the longest running Beatles Tribute Shows in the world. It is certainly the premier Beatles Show Down under. Through the years band membership has rolled over, thus retaining the fresh young sound whilst maintaining the experience of the management.

The Beatnix show includes fully authentic period musical instruments as used by The Beatles. These include very rare and valuable guitars by Gretsch, Hofner, Rickenbacker, Gibson, and drums by Ludwig, the Beatnix have the real vintage equipment. This combined with period Beatle suits and Sgt Pepper outfits give you the complete Beatles experience. You will believe you are seeing the real Beatles. The Beatnix have performed internationally and domestically from large venues to smaller intimate bookings.

There have also been many television performances including  Hey Hey Its’ Saturday, The Midday Show, Good Morning Australia, Simon Townsends’ Wonderworld, Donnie Sutherlands’ Sounds, and appearances at Beatle festivals in Adelaide, Melbourne, Auckland and four Beatlefests in Sydney. The Beatnix have also been professionally recorded on the notable “It’s for you” lost Beatles tracks album, “Stairways to heaven” with the “Money or the gun” album and numerous T.V. and radio commercials including The Soothers ad, Arnott’s Shapes, Browns Choc and you may have seen the “Hertz” ad with the guys [complete with bass drum] in the print media.
