PAUL COLLINS BEAT
Paul Collins has been making hits for 40 years…from The Nerves to The Beat to The Paul Collins Beat year after year of quality rock n roll that has stood the test of time.
In the true spirit of the DIY ethic, anything is possible. Mr. Paul Collins has taken his brand of DIY Touring to extraordinary lengths, tours of Australia, Japan and even China, all done in the DIY, Grassroots style of the 21st Century. Emails, Facebook and Skype are the major components of how Mr. Collins, AKA The Kingof Power Pop arranges tours all over the globe. These tours are humble affairs revolving around ordinary clubs and venues and almost exclusively with young up and coming bands.
Mr. Collins’s forte is touring at ground level with as bare bones an operation as possible; these are shows for the everyday rock fan not big ticket shows that break people’s pocket. Mr. Collins knows who he is and what he can do: play balls to the walls power pop music to a crowd not more than ten feet away, this, in his opinion is where the real rock lives, always has and thank god, always will. As Mr. Collins likes to say…“There are a lot of worlds out there but the one that exists in these small clubs all over the globe is exciting and fun it’s an experience you can’t get anywhere else.”
In what has become a tradition with The Paul Collins Beat, Paul will be joined by three young talented musicians from New Jersey, known around town as The Low Doses who represent the new guarof musician’s around the globe that have picked up the torch to carry on what Mr. Collins and his contemporaries started many years ago in the last century…if you dig vibrant rock n roll played with passion and honesty then make a point of coming out to one of these shows, you will not be disappointed.
