About the Beaters’
The Beaters’ members include Randy Clark, Terryl Greene, David Turner, Rick Lane, Ranse Whitworth, Randy Johnston and David Brown.
Formed in 1985 by Clark, Greene and Turner, the band achieved great success by performing the music of the 1960s.
Looking for an even bigger sound in 1994, the Beaters added Rick Lane and Ranse Whitworth at keyboards to help duplicate the synth and horn arrangements of the 1970s and 1980s.
Randy Johnston joined the group in 2002 to produce even more versatility with his blazing guitar work.
In 2011 David Brown was added to the band. His soaring vocals can cover anyone from Journey to Earth Wind and Fire.
The Beaters pay close attention to detail in reproducing the sounds of the original recordings. Their excellent vocal harmonies and exceptional musicianship are unsurpassed.
The band plays a variety of music styles such as 1960s rock artists The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Van Morrison; Motown artists such as The Temptations, Four Tops, and Marvin Gaye; R&B artists such as James Brown, Wilson Picket, Aretha Franklin; 1970s bands such as Chicago, The Allman Brothers, Aerosmith, The Eagles; 1980s groups such as The Cars, The Fixx, The Police; and disco artists like KC, Rick James, and The Commodores.

From Nashville, Tenn., to Naples, Fla., they have performed at festivals, weddings, nightclubs, corporate parties and every other kind of event imaginable.
