Brief History of the Band.
If you can Remember the Sixties
it was a decade when Music changed with Bands like the Beatles, Stones, Hollies,Kinks etc etc...
A Band who were known for there very colourful stage Gear and inventive style
was a Band called Dave Dee Dozy Beaky Mick & Tich.
Between December 1965 and May 1969 when Dave Dee left the Group
DBM&T spent a Sensational 141 weeks in the UK charts with 13 Major Hit Singles
With Sell Out Tour's of Australia New Zealand Japan and Europe.
1966 was a Vintage year for Dave Dee Dozy Beaky Mick & Tich
having charted 5 Top Ten singles which rewarded the Band with over 50 weeks
in the chart's of that year.
To think it could not get any better for the boys from Wiltshire there success gained
more momentum with the African sounding Drums of a song called Zabadak which
charted for 14 weeks at Number 3 followed up with Okay at number 4 for 11 weeks
and with Touch me Touch me.
But the biggest accolade for Dave Dee Dozy Beaky Mick & Tich
was receiving the GOLDEN OTTO award in Germany .
Germany being the 3rd largest record purchasing nation in the World.
The Silver was taken by the Beach Boys and the Bronze by the Stones.
To be a Musician in the Sixties or being a Musician of today was and still
is to have Number one success.
This was achieved for Dave Dee Dozy Beaky Mick & Tich early in 68
with the influwence of Spanish culture depicted in the song and
the sounding of flamenco guitars and the cracking from a whip.
The Legend of Xanadu was born and became a number 1 hit charting for
Following Dave Dee's departure in 69 Dozy Beaky Mick & Tich were to follow up
with a new album called Fresh Air from which came the single Mr President.
The 70s and 80s saw extensive tours of Europe, New Zealand and the Middle East
also doing recording projects in studios.
Late 80s Dozy Beaky Mick & Tich decided to stop gigging on the road,
and opened a Sixties bar in Puerto Banus near Marbella.
Entertaining the rich and famous.
After a period of two years away from the UK they decided to go back home
and started touring.
To this presant day Dozy Beaky Mick & Tich are still Touring in Europe
and the UK .
Their much praised stage performance is as dynamic as ever and truly
one of the best if not the best Vocal band to come out of the Sixties era.
To Believe is to See!!
