The Beggars have been playing "good time rock and roll" for many years now. In September of 2012 the band formed a New lineup adding great guitar player Chris Krez and fantastic Bass player James "Pookie" Grech to the mix along with founding member Johnny Wilkins, SuperDrummer Jim Faulkner and Frontman extraordinaire Steven Tuthill. The New Lineup has recorded a New "live at GBS" record that will be coming out in July, 2013 on Motorcity Special Records and a Full length Studio Album to be recorded and released in November, 2013.

The Band has toured from Wilmington, NC to Anaheim, CA(coast to coast). The Live show is a must see as many folks in Metro Detroit now know the Beggars don't mail it in Ever! This Band gets the Original Spirit of rock and roll(have fun-to hell with pretentious bullshit). The shows vary according to the crowds. Extremely Positive vibe that is both family friendly and not skimping on the excitement of Live Rock and roll. The Crowd is ALWAYS encouraged to join in on the fun as there are many call and response moments in the Live act.

The Musicians are very professional and experienced and understand proper band etiquette. If You are looking for a band that suits the entertainment needs of human beings the ages of 7-70 the Beggars are Your band.
