“The best Australian vocal band since The Seekers” Normie Rowe[Australia] 2011
The Beggars sound is often compared to The Seekers. Little wonder! When Stuart was 6 years old he saved up his pocket money to buy The Seekers Sing Their Big Hits and listened to it ceaselessly. He and ten million others wept as they watched The Seekers final TV special. Quinton toured with The Seekers on one of their 1990s Australian tours, and Judith Durham was an original inspiration for Renee to take up singing.
From the Seekers early days in the Melbourne cafe scene to London, swinging centre of the 1960s pop universe, they rode a rollercoaster of pop/folk hits! In 1968 their BBC TV breakup special Farewell The Seekers broke TV viewing records and their popularity has not faded with the years. In a career with more comebacks than Dame Nellie Melba and John Farnham the Seekers 50th anniversary tour is their final farewell.
