BeApple Live on the Radio

Eefke Boelhouwers is the charming host of a daily ‘feelgood’ radio programme from 1 pm till 4 pm at Omroep Brabant Radio. At set times you might be caught with live music. Thursday, October 14 this will be a certain something. BeApple is on the programme this Thursday and is going to perform some nearly undressed versions from their repertoire including All I’ve Got To Do which is already different from what you might expect of a Beatles tribute band. Live but almost naked. We’re glad it is only radio !

For this time only it’s not again ´See you there!´, but “Sit and relax, close your eyes and ask yourself like us what Eefke wants to know about BeApple”. Omroep Brabant Radio, Thursday with Eefke, 1 pm (till 4 pm)

Cult & Tumult with BeApple

After 7 really exciting gigs in Liverpool last august, even more vibrant as last year, we already did one of a kind also in our hometown Eindhovena few weeks ago. As we go with the flow now BeApple is facing a new challenge at the Veldhoven ‘Cult & Tumult 2010’ cultural festival. Next Sunday, September 26 we climb the stage at 4.30 PM for another “BeApple plays the Beatles”. As you know, different from what to expect, that’s for sure. ‘Cult & Tumult’ is a festival with a wide range of art and culture. The program is full of interesting acts for the young and aged. Having its fourteenth edition this year, Cult & Tumult is definitely one of the bigger cultural events in Holland.

Before, during and after our show you can buy the official ‘Let it BeApple’ 2010 T-shirt. You might notice John Lennon’s handwriting on it as well as some thumbnails sketched in his style. So quite a gadget we think.

Sunday, September 26 – Meiveld, 5501 KA Veldhoven (The Netherlands) – Doors open: 4.30 PM

BeApple versus the Stones

Take a close look and see: ‘Tribute Beatles’ in De Kersouwe open air theatre. Don’t need to guess who. You can have your choice and see the band you know that is meant here. This is all about the BeApple four. See them play next Friday, June 18.

Your best chance at last to experience the difference between the Beatles and the Stones. Although the Stones did come scary near to the sound of the Fab Four with ‘I Wanna Be Your Man’.

The very last time we know a tribute confrontation like this took place was in 2008 in Trondheim, Norway. So don’t miss it when you happen to be around.

Only a few tickets are still available, 10 euro each. Do not disappoint yourself by waiting for the last moment but go for it online at http://www.kersouwe.nl/index.php?page=9 .

See you there !

Friday, June 18 – Natuurtheater De Kersouwe – Kersouwelaan 1 – 5473 TE – Heeswijk-Dinther (The Netherlands) – Doors open: 8 PM

BeApple is on the road again

We are ready for it. Only two weeks from now BeApple starts touring again. After an intense period of rehearsing new songs we now focus on our first 2010 gig, Saturday, May 15. Having already 10 gigs in front of one, including some in Liverpool (UK) for the second time in august, the new season for BeApple looks bright once more.

A new spring, a new sound. From now on the unmistakable BeApple sound can be heard in even more Beatles classics. Of course we start playing them right away but you may count on new entries on all gigs to come so you won’t get bored that fast.

We are looking forward to meet you ‘Beapple People’ live again in the near future. See you there !

Saturday, May 15 – Café van U, Hof 20 5571 CC, Bergeijk (The Netherlands) – Doors open: 10 PM

BeApple gets a taste for more

It took some time but here it is, our youngest newsletter. As you notice the format changed as well as the size of the English chapter.

With more than 20 gigs last year, amongst some 14 abroad we had a memorable time in 2009. This also leads us to a new exciting phase, which needs a slightly different approach. More professional but without drawing a bill on the musical excitement and the friendship we build. We carefully look upon this as thé BeApple formula.

After returning from Buenos Aires we needed some time to think things over regarding our ambitions for 2010 and how to achieve them. Of course we also focused on the music and started to expand the BeApple repertoire for new gigs to come. Repertoire you won’t hear other tribute bands normally play. We know you will also recognize this as a typical BeApple approach!

Our working method attracts attention and shortly since Argentina is again regarding interest from abroad. Everything seems to pass off without a hitch, even that fast that we decided to cancel some 4 gigs we were invited to do in Louisville (USA) next may. It didn’t fit in our individual schedules. A pity but not that dramatic. We just signed for again 6 to 7 gigs inLiverpool in august this week, starting at the Cavern Club Backstage! And we also are listed for festivals in Mons(BE) en Washington (USA). Not bad at all.

All nice and exciting but of course we also remain doing gigs in The Netherlands, starting may 15. So this springtime we are on the road again. See you there!

BeApple lessons

How nice that todays youngsters also discover the Beatles and the Eindhoven Four. There are even pieces of work dedicated to them. Iris Huis in ‘t Veld (6VWO) and Jules van Stiphout (elementary school) both wrote an essay. BeApple was asked to contribute which was a pleasure.
