Beatles Blues and Blue Violin was a project created by Mik Kaminski and Phil Bates (Trickster, ELO Part 2, Bev Bevan's Move & The Orchestra).
Mik and Phil first met when Phil's band Trickster were supporting ELO on their "Out of the Blue" tour. Both bands were on the Jet Records label at the time.
Mik and Phil met again in the early 1990's when Kelly Groucutt asked Phil to join ELO Part 2, They are still good friends and Phil plays in The Orchestra when usual guitarist Parthanon Huxley isn't available. Phil also played in Bev Bevan's Move and Bev Bevan Band (2004 - 2007). The BBBV was formed in 2008 and consisted of Phil, Mik and Phil's ex-girlfriend Tina McBain on vocals, They toured around the UK performing songs from The Beatles, Eric Clapton and ELO. BBBV played smaller, intimate venues, I've seen them several times at The Key's Restaurant, at St Peter's Parish Church crypt in Huddersfield, they also played the Cavern in Liverpool.
I've scanned the covers of my BBBV cd.

Horacewimp: We are all good thanks, just wishing I could go on a foreign holiday, it’s just not worth the risk with Covid and the possibility of a 14 day quarantine, we may do some short breaks in the U.K.
