About the band

Becki and the Dove (Becki Morgan and Andy Dove) are a lively, experienced professional duo. We specialise as a hugely entertaining Pop/Rock covers band, playing all the best music from up to the minute chart hits to the laid back rock classics.

If you're looking for an energetic, fun, professional band for your wedding, private party or corporate event, Becki and the Dove are for you!

 

Original Material

A wide variation of musical styles from blues and jazz to pop and grunge, has resulted in our distinct blend of outstanding original songs, which are all ultimately anchored around a strong sense of melody.

Our first EP entitled "City Freaks" was written and polished in the space of just a week. On the back of this self-funded and produced E.P they have raised the bar through frequent live performances, bringing energetic shows and great entertainment to local venues. The title track, “City Freaks” from this first batch of songs, has had airplay on local community radio stations and larger stations further afield, Radio Northants, BBC Northampton, and Rugby FM to name but a few.

After a busy summer, and long string of successful festival appearances including Rugby Music Festival, Crick Music festival, and Umbrella festival Northampton, Becki and Andy have played to a wide variety of mixed audiences, quickly developing the ability to work a crowd and put on a first rate show. In the live setting, use of clever guitar work involving looping pedals and effects more associated with electric guitar, allows Becki and the Dove to entertain you with a formidable sound for a two piece.

With a second, larger E.P planned for the Christmas period, Becki and the Dove will be working hard, writing further originals, pushing themselves musically and creatively. Expect bigger, expect better, and expect a whole new Becki and the Dove.

Becki And the Dove are one act you should be sure to keep an eye out for. Go and see them live, buy an E.P, show them your support and see what all the excitement is all about.

Becki's Bio

Becki is a singer /songwriter currently performing throughout Warwickshire and Northamptonshire covering popular music which spans over several decades. Her passionate desire to develop and perform her own original work is little known to her existing audience.

In her spare time Becki spent several years studying musical theatre but became increasingly focused on performing and writing. She now regularly performs at local events, pubs and clubs and has a unique talent for engaging with her audience. She has received some incredible responses at events such as Kenilworth Festival, Rugby Bike Festival, Picnic in the Park, and as support to Roll 13’s and Tan.Trum. She has been a regular performer at The Boat Inn Music nights and The Vault in Rugby.

In early 2014 Becki became lead singer for ‘The Banned’, a local group who received fabulous responses playing at local events and music venues in her home town. When she is not actually performing, most of Becki’s time is spent rehearsing, writing and spending time out with friends supporting other local musicians.

Becki’s range of influences is wide; she has been inspired by acoustic talents such as Frank Hamilton, Lewis Watson, Nina Nesbitt, and Ed Sheeran. She has also been heavily influenced by Arctic Monkeys, Iron Maiden, a day to remember and various other rock bands. Becki continually enjoys discovering and learning from artists past and present.

Becki is rarely seen without her ‘Taylor’ guitar. The guitar she finally acquired several months ago after years of dreaming.

Andy's Bio

Andy's pedigree relates to the broadcast industry which has led to a musical lifestyle. Currently in his last year at University studying Music Performance, Andy fills his spare time by socialising, rehearsing and gigging. Andy has also been running a successful guitar teaching business since 2010.

He has been lead guitarist in a number of groups over the past four years, and has had a lot of success playing live in his home town as well as up and down the country. A notable highpoint would be a two week recording session in London with his old band 'Tear of Eden' with a top end producer. A truly rewarding and enjoyable experience. Andy has learnt a lot along the way through collaborations with other musicians, and strives to put on the best possible show, every show, often being very energetic and expressive in playing.

Currently playing for bands 'Ol'Rosie' and 'Becki and the Dove' his playing spans over both electric and acoustic guitar. With a deep upbringing in rock music from his father, Andy enjoys all the classic bands from Zeppelin, Sabbath, AC/DC, Thin Lizzy, Status Quo, Jethro Tull, Whitesnake and Rainbow, right through to more recent artists such as Black Stone Cherry, Joe Bonamassa, Baroness and Richie Kotzen. His other musical interests delve into classical, experimental and instrumental music.

Gear wise, Andy has an extensive collection of guitars. For Becki and the Dove, you will see him always wielding a Faith jumbo acoustic guitar, which punches out crystal clear melodies, and big sounding chords. He also has both Takamine and fender 12 string acoustics, all exclusively strung with Elixir strings. He uses Jim Dunlop plectrums, as thick as they come, and Boss and Dunlop pedals.
