      Blues Beatles

      The Blues Beatles started during the breaks of the rehearsals of Today – an original band that Marcos Viana, Flavio Naves, Lancaster Ferreira, Bruno Falcão and Fred Barley started in 2010. Marcos, the singer, would invariably pick up his acoustic guitar and would start playing Beatles songs. The other members of the band were amazed at how natural the songs sounded. Being blues players the rest of the band started adding their blues twist to these “break songs”. One day Lancaster said: “Why don’t we mix these two things we love to play? We could call this Blues Beatles!” Everyone loved the idea and together the Blues Beatles were born in 2013.

      The first version of the Beatles songs that caught people’s attention was Ticket To Ride. The video has now 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. Most of the vocal melodies are kept in their original form, but interpreted with Marcos’ unique voice, in an unpretentious and heart-felt way. The arrangements combine blues and soul grooves that suit the vocals of the songs while adding a different feel to them. Instrumental solos and improvisation, 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.

      Blues Beatles released their debut CD, Get Back to The Blues recorded in 2016 at the Space Blues Studios in São Paulo, Brazil. To achieve the sound they were looking for they invited their favorite saxophone player Denilson “Big D” Martins to record several tracks. Later the band invited him to join them on tours. In December 2016 they started divulging their videos internationally on Facebook and their instant success was overwhelming. Their rendition of A Hard Day’s Night reached one million views in only one week.

      Tickets are $15 advance and $20 day of show. This show is in the Rhythm Room on the casino floor and is open to guests of 21 years of age or older.
