The Missing Links was formed in the spring of 1995 by band member Daniel Lopez,during the Monkees 30th anniversary
tour of the US and England. The high powered energy,comedy and strong musical skills of the Missing Links have made
them one of the country's hottest new tribute acts!! The Missing Links show relives the entire carreer of the classic
Monkees television series,and the bandperforms all ten of he Monkeestop 40 hits. The Missing Links are all accomplished
musicians an actores that have an uncanny resemblance to the original Monkees.
The Huge success of the Monkees television show and their record sales over the last four decades is what prompted
my interest in starting a Monkees tribute band." States Missing Links creator Daniel (Davy)Lopez. He continues,I always
thought it would be a great idea to have a tribute act that not only performs all of the hit songs by the Monkees, but one
that recreates the classic comedy of the TV show. I've been in the tribute band business a long time and felt it was time
to try something different." Daniel is also the creator of the internationally proclaimed Beatles tribute band - Back beat.
"I must admit it was much tougher to cast a Monkees band because of their TV exposure and true comedic genius.
"explains Daniel." I had to find performers who could not only play the classic songs but who could also act and make
people laugh. I feel we accomplished is the Missing Links. John Lennon called the Monkees the Marx brothers of Rock
N Roll. I felt it was time to bring some fun into the tribute shows because so many of them are too serious." This band
really gets people to laugh and have a good time."
The Missing Links bring back to life the Monkees 60's tv show with replicas of the actual instruments, videos and
costumes used by the original band.Their wardrobe includes the famous 8-button red shirts and hippie clothes.
Daniel is also very aware that there are thousands of Beatles,Rolling Stones and Elvis tribute acts out there.In an
effort to stay competitive,the Missing Links not only play the hits of the Monkees but also classic rock songs of the
Beatles,Rolling Stones and other greats.
