About The Eggmen

You might have helped vote us number one for NINE YEARS in the "Best Cover Band" category in the Austin Chronicle Music Poll. Or you might've seen us play live or heard us on KLBJ, KGSR, Z102.3, Oldies 103, or KUT. Whatever the reason for your visiting Eggmen.com, there is one thing for sure - you really dig the music of the 60's.
Our first set is all early Beatles, we call it the "Suit Set",
consisting of songs like "Hard Day's Night" and "She Loves
You". In our second set, the "Psychedelic Set" we tackle
the hard stuff like "Day in the Life," "I am the Walrus," and Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band."
Songs of the "British Invasion" like "19th Nervous Breakdown" and
Who we are
John, Tommo, Nigel, Basil, and Davy, collectively know as the "The Eggmen" originally formed in 1992 in Austin, Texas. The Eggmen play authentic instruments, including amps by Vox; guitars by Rickenbacker/Gretsch/Epiphone/Hofner etc.; drums by Ludwig (vintage mid-sixties). Our "Liverpudlian" accents and vocal abilities are without equal. We play anything from private parties to large outdoor festivals.
We dig the music of the 60'sActually it's more like an obsession. We see ourselves as the keepers of a particularly important flame - live performance of the greatest music of this century ( our opinion of course). We think its important to treat the composer's musical ideas with a respectful rendition of the original piece. In our case, this means great live versions of music from The Beatles; The Kinks: The Who; Rolling Stones etc....
We dig the musical tools of the pastWe've researched the musical instruments of the 1960s to find our sound. That's why we haul vintage guitars, amps, and drums to every gig because we know how important these wonderful instruments are in capturing the sound...the tones...the feel of "that 60s thing." ( besides, these instruments look pretty cool too). Before a show there is often a small crowd drooling over the guitars sitting on the stage.
