attendorn Memories of the music of the good old days and in particular of the legendary mushroom caps are guaranteed to be awakened on Wednesday, June 29 at 8 p.m. at the opening of the Attendorn Summer of Culture on the cinema forecourt. With free admission, guests can enjoy the oldest Beatles Revival Band.
The Beatles caused a real hype in their heyday in the 1960s. The music could be heard around the world. The news of the breakup of the Liverpool-based cult band shocked the music scene and millions of fans in the 1970s.
Four years later, four young musicians in Frankfurt am Main decide to bring the Beatles’ songs to the stage again “just for fun alongside their studies and work”.
Premiere at the carnival evening
They took the records of the Fab Four and painstakingly worked out the finely detailed sound of the musical legends. In 1976, the “Beat-Boys vom Main” dared to step into the limelight on an average, happy carnival evening in Frankfurt’s “Sinkkasten”.
For this occasion they had come up with the name “The Beatles Revival Band”. A perplexed, then crazy-playing audience suddenly found themselves in Hamburg’s “Starclub” and transported years back: A yellow submarine floated through the music store, Sergeant Pepper danced rock ‘n’ roll and Eleanor Rigby served colored drinks.
Most successful cover band of all time
The performance in a completely sold-out Berlin Philharmonic followed weeks later. The music magazine Joker described the Beatles Revival Band as the most successful cover band of all time.
After more than 45 years, the Beatles Revival Band is the longest-serving cover band and, measured by the average age of the members, the youngest Beatles tribute band in Germany. With more than 3,000 concerts and more than 100 TV appearances, she has already taken her audience on a journey through time to the 1960s – and that is exactly what the “boys” from Hesse have planned to do in Attendorn.
