    The Blues Beatles

    Blues Beatles started during the breaks of the rehearsals of Today – an original band that Marcos Viana, Flavio Naves, Bruno Falcão and Fred Barley started in 2012. Marcos, the singer, would invariably pick up his acoustic guitar and start playing Beatles songs. The other members of the band were amazed at how natural the songs sounded, as if he had written them himself. Being blues players, the rest of the band started adding their blues twist to these “break songs”. The first version of the Beatles songs that caught people’s attention was A Hard Days Night. The video now has more than two million views on Facebook.

     

    The band has worked and reworked many different songs since it was formed, but only the ones that sound natural to their ears stay in the repertoire. The arrangements combine blues and soul grooves that suit the vocals of the songs while adding a different feel to them. Instrumental solos, improvisation and typical elements of the blues are an integral part of the Blues Beatles' style. Their fiery live performances showcase their individual and collective skills as soloists.
