ABOUT THE BAND
The Pre-Amps are a 4-piece British 1960s-influenced Pop/Rock band from Newcastle upon Tyne, England.
They specialise in performing covers from the 1960s, covering the likes of The Beatles, The Beach Boys, Small Faces, The Who, The Kinks, The Hollies and The Monkees to name but a few, whilst combining distinctive 1960s-style vocal harmonies and retro Rock & Roll instrumentation to create a real nostalgic experience that’s sure to get you up dancing!
Known locally for their impressive vocal harmonies, The Pre-Amps have made a big impression on the North East music scene since touring the local pub/club circuit and spent time furthering this in the North West during 2017-2020 whilst studying Music Production at Edge Hill University in Ormskirk, Lancashire. The group is currently playing regularly at various venues around the UK, mainly focussing on social clubs and holiday parks where they are gaining a positive reputation as a hard-working, professional and entertaining live act.
They gained great exposure after playing on the front stage at the world-famous Cavern Club, Liverpool for the first time in March 2018 and supported the Small Fakers in the Cavern Club Live Lounge in March 2019, subsequently being asked to return by the venue on several occasions.
