Scandinavia Beatlemania Blues Tour 2018
It is with great pleasure that we at Damn Good Music, can introduce you to this great Brazilian band.
And no, it is not Samba or Salsa or for that matter any other Latin-American rhythm your are gonna hear, but fusion between one of the most famous band, The Beatles performed by the very elegant, swinging and yet with all Brazilian humor, Blues Beatles.
Blues Beatles is the combination of The Beatles’ vocals with hard-driving blues rhythms. Songs like A Hard Day’s Night, Ticket to Ride and Yesterday receive new arrangements, in which the most memorable parts are preserved and others changed to allow the blues universe to come into action.
The result is innovative studio and stage performances that blend familiar Beatles’ melodies with improvised guitar, Hammond, piano and saxophone solos.
Each member of Blues Beatles has a well established career in the blues and rock scene in Brazil and is among the top five players in their respective instruments in the country.
