The Quik Beats

An Upbeat Tribute to Iconic Soul, Mod and R&B Music

The Quik Beats are a five-piece Mod and Soul band who deliver an upbeat ‘tribute’ to iconic Mod, Soul and R&B music. The band draws its repertoire from the material made famous by mid-sixties “British Invasion” bands, American soul artists of the era and home-grown Northern Soul acts. Majoring on high quality vocals and virtuoso musicianship their show has become a firm favourite with established venues across the Midlands.

The Quik Beats’ goal is authenticity, right from the choice of their instruments through to their stage presentation, and this eye for detail along with the band’s professional outlook is reflected in the high quality of their performances.

But don’t just take our word for it …

From our original conversations regarding the production of their vinyl recording, through to meeting & working with the guys, The Quik beats are a pleasure to work with. Being personable fellas with a professional client approach always makes my job a lot easier & throughout the process of getting their music mastered & pressed the guys were keen to maintain a high level of authenticity & quality. Working with The Quik beats was altogether an enjoyable experience & I look forward to seeing them here at Abbey Road Studios again soon.

In the ten years that The Artrix has been open, the venue has worked with The Quik Beats on several very successful projects, most recently earlier this year when we booked the band for a reprise of their innovative concept ‘Quadrophenia Night’. The band has always been professional to work with not only delivering polished performances but also developing new event formats and promoting gigs.

Upon booking The Quik Beats it was great to see a band deliver that fantastic 60s Hammond sound so authentically. With an obvious eye for image and detail as well as excellent musicianship, the band convincingly trade off both classic 60s hits & those often forgotten gems of the era. Acts that have a professional and entertaining approach while giving our audience something a little different is something The Jam House always endeavours to provide for its patrons and The Quik Beats are no exception. We look forward to their return this September.

The Feathers Inn is the Premier Music venue for the Lichfield area and I’ve known The Quik beats for over three years. They’re always punctual and professional from the time they arrive, through the sound check and the gig itself. Their Hammond Organ player recently won the Hammond Organ USA World “Riff Off” Competition and we presented him with our very own competition prize in front of a packed audience. Their music is skilfully delivered, our working relationship is excellent and audiences comment to us on the level of authenticity that they reproduce. A two hour set from The Quik Beats can touch up to 40 songs! They command the top fee that we pay.

We booked The Quik beats to provide the music for Morgan Cars’ largest event of the year, the standing ovation they achieved made sure we will feature them at future events. They entertained the crowds for several hours and played a big part in making our event one to remember.

I’m a studio owner and musician and first became aware of The Quik Beats a couple of years ago when they performed at a venue local to me in Oxfordshire. I was impressed by their obvious dedication to authenticity, their professionalism and sharp suits. Competent musicians playing authentic renditions of classic 60’s “British Invasion” songs using authentic equipment. I got talking to them after the gig to discuss playing a festival that I was helping to organise and was further impressed by their business acumen. You won’t be disappointed.
