NOT THE BEATLES

Not The Beatles are a Beatles tribute band based in West Cornwall. We formed in 1998 after 'John' placed an advert in the local press, and - just like the originals - first Paul joined , then George joined, and then Ringo joined.........

The band is made up of 'John' otherwise known as Nigel Collins. With a lifelong love of all things Beatles, Nigel is the founder member of the band. Guitar and piano skills, a rasping Lennon vocal and a naturally dry sense of humour, his portrayal of John is loved and admired. He has played with The Counterfeit Beatles and Beatles For Sale, and has previously had an audition with The Bootleg Beatles.

'Paul ' otherwise know as Dave Harvey, David took over the Hofner Violin bass form Mike Higgs in 2005. With his silky voice and doe eyed look, he makes a natural Macca...although not left-handed. He has also played with The Fab Beatles and The Backbeat Beatles.

'George' otherwise known as Bill Tonkin, Bill has portrayed George from the start, joining Nigel in the original line-up in 1999. A love of guitars, a keen ear for detail and a unique dead-pan scouse George accent, Bill has also played with The Counterfeit Beatles and The Fab Beatles.

'Ringo ' otherwise known as Mike Hollywood, Mike joined the band in 2015, taking over from the original Ringo, Pete Ledingham. A very accomplished and sought after drummer, Mike has studied Ringo's parts in great detail, but adds his own  sympathetic interpretation to them. Mike has previous experience playing with top local bands and has done numerous tours on cruise ships.

We play faithful reproductions of The Beatles' most popular hits and LP tracks with authentic vintage instruments, fab costumes and dodgy accents. and we play everything live!!
