Good Night 2014 at MiK Night

This Friday, 12 December, BeApple closes a fantastic 2014 with as special gig at the MiK Night at CHV Noordkade in Veghel (Netherlands). It’s been a while since the machinery there stopped mixing and blending, but the renewed CHV Noordkade cultural centre makes itself heard. Various cultural institutes and companies proceed with it and that’s exactly what we like: mix and mingle, as we do … the Beatles with a twist. In between a variety of music, theatre, dance, presentations and workshops. A true contemporary Magical Mystery Tour at the eleventh hour of the year.

Be there and look back with us on a very fine BeApple 2014.

Where: Het Magazijn, Walsmalerij IIN.C.B.- Laan 52a

BeApple’s Bankers Banquet show

Our next gig leads us to the most southern part of the country. To be more precise we are heading for Landgraaf next week, well known for the annual Pinkpop festival since 1970! For those who think “did I miss anything?”, no you didn’t. There’s no festival planned and BeApple is not on the list. But eventually you’ll miss something anyway. Unfortunately our next gig is a private one, for Belgian bankers only. We will become ‘Beatles One’ for one night, playing number one songs from this highest-selling album only. A special request to a special band was the thought of the organizing party. We can only agree with it.

But of course we don’t let you down towards the end of the year. You can already mark your calendar at Friday December 12. Share this date with friends and forward the message. We keep you informed about what is going to happen (free of charge).

See you!

This Sunday BeApple appears at the monumental bandstand in Gouda (NL). The historical bandstand from 1898 forms the backdrop for the annual ‘Houtmansplantsoen concerts’ since 1993. Each summer this is the place to have a family picnic or just to meet friends in an enjoyable setting dressed up with high quality live music. Something many cities will be jealous of.

BeApple heading for Alkmaar again

This Saturday BeApple appears on stage in Alkmaar (NL) at the 50 years Beatles in Holland anniversary festival ‘De Beatlesdag’.

BeApple now opens the Alkmaar festival on main stage at 2 PM.

Date: Saturday 21 June

Finally! Line up @ BeatleBrainia

Only a few days from now in Eindhoven

Don’t miss out on this great line up next week. June 7, the first BeatleBrainia festival will take place on the very exact location where the CompactCassette was introduced (1963) and the CD has been invented. Major steps in the development of popular music and a big helping hand in spreading the music of the sixties led by The Beatles. BeatleBrainia celebrates both revolutions, 50 years after The Beatles did their only two shows in The Netherlands.

Over the course of twelve hours you will hear 8 stunning acts, leading and emerging performers in the Beatles Tribute scene. Antoine Goudeseune (BE), Tony Bramwell (UK), BeApple (NL), Jay Goeppner (USA) & Maiju Lepomäki (FI), Revolver (UK), Jonny Walker (UK), Choking Smokers (FR), and selected artists in the framework of the ‘Beatles PURE’ concept (NL).

Accompanied with a Beatles mini market and expo, especially selected for the occasion, BeatleBrainia will be one of the most exciting Beatles happenings in The Netherlands.

It’s a positive thing to see the spirit of The Beatles living on and being celebrated by new generations of artists and audiences. Already over 60% of the tickets are sold prior to the festival, including many to young people. That’s what means the most to us – the connection to one another felt by all of us who worked on the festival and all those who visit it.

Till next week!

Date: Saturday 7 June
Where: PopEi, Klokgebouw 300, Eindhoven (NL)
Start: 13.00 uur (BeApple at 17:30)
Tickets: 20 EUR

BeApple way back when (2)…

Let’s talk about the village of Boerdonk (The Netherlands) once again. We think one of the best kept secrets of the Netherlands is in this little rural village of the province of Brabant. With only 800 citizens Boerdonk happens to have one of the most appealing small stages in the country. And we love to go back there. Make sure you get in in time since many of the Boerdonk people will be there as well!

Support acts: “Back Before Friday” en “No Elevator”.

Date: Friday 28 March
Where: Den Hazenpot, Pastoor van Schijndelstraat 37, 5469 PS Boerdonk (NL)
Doors open: 19.00 uur
Tickets: 8 EUR

BeApple way back when…

In some places in the province of Brabant (The Netherlands), home of BeApple, you still can taste of what it must have been here in the sixties. St. Lambertus church in Helmond is such a place. In the roaring sixties the parish hall of this church happened to be a real music hall. Dutch ‘hit killers’ like Q65 and The Golden Earrings appeared on stage here like The Beatles did in the Jacaranda in their early days. The current owners of Hotel St.Lambert sensed the secret wish of many people longing for these special moments. Therefore they introduced ‘Lambertussoos’, back to the sixties with live music from the best acts in the genre. It’s The Beatles turn on Sunday 16 February, or rather it’s us who’ll hit the stage…

Date: Sunday 16 February
Where: Markt 2, 5701 RK Helmond (NL)
Showtime: 16.00 uur
Tickets: Vrije toegang
