Mick Clarke

Mick Clarke, an original Rubettes band member, provides bass and vocals for the band.

Mick met John Richardson while he was playing at a pub in Essex in the early 1970s.

Late in 1973, John called him up and asked him if he would like to become a band member of his brand new group the Rubettes.

Mick took a break from the Rubettes in early 1990 which featured Alan Williams and went to work with Elton John, Cliff Richards, Jordanaires, and Shakin’ Stevens.

The bassist remained with The Rubettes with Alan Willians on vocals, John Richardson, and Steve Etherington until Feb. 15, 2019 when the band broke up and joined the Rubettes with John Richardson and Steve Etherington.

With his new version of the Rubettes, the band’s new single was signed to a label and hit the North American charts a week after it was released in February 2019.

Mick also provided bass and vocals for the Mick Clarke The Tremeloes (1966–1967, 1992–1996). He continues to pop up to perform with the band as a special guest.
