"I've just been listening to a band called The Pre-Amps on iTunes and I have to say it's worth checking them out. They are a sixties-sounding band with some great original material and it's really good stuff. They have been doing the usual circuit of gigs so you might have heard of them already, but give them a listen." - Spencer James (The Searchers, The First Class etc.)

"The Pre-Amps storm through a set worthy of a 1960s bender. Fantastic. Edge Hill University have a brilliant band on site." - Carl Hunter (The Farm)

"Those boys can sing." - Chris Taylor (Producer)


"Great stuff at The Cavern last night! Playing those songs spot on and with the respect they deserve; i.e. not doing a mod/punk version as so often gets done. We will deffo share a stage with you guys again." - Matt Bond (Small Fakers)

"Fantastic night of pure talent and entertainment! Seen them twice, would certainly go see them again." - Suzanne Bonner


"Saw the lads at Marden Residents Club and they lifted the roof. An absolutely faultless performance." - Jill Wear


"The Pre-Amps are an excellent band who are in complete harmony with each other. They are four extremely talented individuals who both sound, look and dress the part to the era of the 1960’s. By the end of their performance they have the audience singing along, dancing and wanting more. I would highly recommend booking them at a pub or a club or for a special occasion." - Louise Sanderson


"Excellent band, every one of them gel together with vocals and instruments - brilliant 60s coverage. Looking forward to seeing them again." - Robbie Miley


"The Pre-Amps are the best new band around. So talented. I usually don’t like other singers/bands version of Beatles music but this band is the exception. Their star is rising!" - Cheri Bill


"Watching these boys banging through the Beatles songbook gives you an idea of what it might have been like to see the real band in their early days. Raw, passionate - fantastic." - Mark Anderson


"Really enjoyed seeing this group at The Four Ladies, Cramlington last night - a real class act! I look forward to seeing them again in the future." - David Parks


"Fantastic band. Will definitely be back to see you again and will recommend that all my friends come to see you!" - Janice Moore

"Wonderful! My aunt sent me their CD and I love it. You guys sound great!" - Jessica Gonzalez


"Saw these at the Maggie Bank - excellent musicians and great lads. Defo recommend seeing them." - Cheryl Vissenga


"Really love these guys. They sound great, harmonize well and play songs from my era that I love." - Michael Robertson


"These lads are fab and will go a long way. Must be seen." - Karen Knight


"These are a really good band, saw them at The Hastings. All good songs mostly from the 60s." - Anita Straker


"Brilliant band, always a pleasure to watch and it's obvious how much hard work they all put into what they do. Keep up the hard work guys, I'm sure you will make it to the top!" - Norman Banks


"Well worth checking out if you're into the mid 60s. Fantastic harmonies! Can always appreciate young talent." - Owen Johnstone


"Excellent musicians, all of them." - Scott Creedon


"They do lots of 60s songs, I'm in my 60s. Always loved music, but it's not just the fact they do 60s material - I've heard some bad bands doing that. This band is seriously good. It's immediately clear that they have worked hard to be good ... "Professional" is the word that came to mind as soon as they started playing. I look forward to seeing them again in December." - Arthur Bosworth


"Had these guys at our bar, they were outstanding. Top quality harmonies and a very tight band. We immediately booked them again. A must see band!" - Michael Jeffels


"I am very impressed with these four multi-talented musicians and singers. It is so refreshing to hear a younger generation who appreciates the music of my generation - and do it so well too! I bought their 'Covers' CD and they sound just like the originals. That is not an easy feat considering they were doing covers from The Beatles, The Beach Boys etc. Great harmonies! Each Pre-Amp can sing and sound awesome with their spot-on harmonies. This, in addition to playing as well as anyone years older than them can, makes them a wonderful act to enjoy. They are quite young and I know they are beginning to write their own compositions, I have heard a few of them and they are very good! I know they will go far in the music industry. I live in the USA and wish I could see them play live. One day, I hope to be back in the UK and I definately want to see them play in person. Meanwhile, everyone who gets the chance, go see The Pre-Amps and be blown away!" - Paula Brock


"10/10 - I would highly recommend for bookings. They are amazing at harmonies." - Molly Banks


"The Pre-Amps played at The Magnesia Bank and they went down a storm with the audience. Great young lads with fantastic harmonies, and musically outstanding. The songs were almost identical to the real thing. Anybody thinking about booking these talented lads, do not hesitate. We certainly will be booking them again! Can't wait!" - Karen Gibson


"Really talented bunch of lads! I had a really good night watching them perform. Not even usually my type of music and I still found myself dancing and singing along. Will definitely be coming to watch again next time I'm in Newcastle!" - Robyn Katie


"What more can I say other than what a fantastic band they are! Their harmonies blend in really well, both live and on their 'Covers' CD. I have been to watch them at multiple pubs and clubs across Newcastle and not one venue has been dissapointed. For their age they are fantastic and very professional. You would be a fool not to give them a listen, especially if you are a Beatles or Beach Boys fan!" - Lauryn Currey


"Saw these guys in The Cavern Club early this year and they rocked it! The Liverpool people can be a tricky bunch to please and The Pre-Amps won them over from the start!" - David Hughes (Charity Shop Pop)


"Great band, definitely worth checking out." - Stephen Ferrell


"Fantastic band - worth a watch!" - Vicky Bell


"Consistently amazing!" - Charlotte Anderson


"The Pre-Amps aren't your run-of-the-mill covers band, they are a cut above that. With the keyboards and 4-part vocal harmonies making an ease of Beach Boys classics, as well as covering Small Faces, The Beatles (better than most Beatles tributes) and other 60s classics, they just do it better than everyone. Get them booked and you won't regret it." - Noel Robson (Howaysis)


"I had the pleasure of photographing this band last night and they were absolutely brilliant! Really enjoyed watching such a talented bunch of lads who I'm sure will go far! Can't wait to go and watch them again!" - Lucy Walker (Lady Jayne Photography)


"Brilliant atmosphere at their gigs, beautiful vocals, very talented young gentlemen." - Norman Banks


"Great set at The Forum in Darlington. Keep up the good work. Very high standard." - Andrew Jinks


"Fantastic night at The Forum, Darlington. Please hurry up back. First class lads." - Richard Fielden


"My kind of music. Sounds ACE." - Julie Walker


"These guys are amazing" - Helen Palmer Wilson


"Great group. Going to miss them when they go back to Liverpool." - Iris Ritson


"Top gig today...superb. The harmonies between you guys are some of the best I've ever heard!" - Scott Buglass


"Authentic to the core." - Dennis 'Menace' Harrison
