BeApple celebrates its 10th anniversary

The most original Dutch Beatles band is celebrating its 10th anniversary this month! When the Eindhoven Four started in 2006 they had a pretty clear picture of what their Beatles tribute should be, but no one foresaw it would lead BeApple across some of the most dreamed of venues in the Beatles world. From a number of concerts at the original Cavern Club in Liverpool to well visited gigs at various bandstands in several countries including Argentina.

Come and celebrate our anniversary with us during one of the special selected two upcoming gigs. Or do both! Some very fine locations are the scene of the ‘BeApple-Ten’ celebration, starting off with the atmospheric, how appropriate, ‘Podium10’ in Bladel, and next in line the Helmond ‘Cacaofabriek’ at studio 4. This gig will partly be broadcasted live on air!

Don’t miss it…

This is one of these places where BeApple feels at home, a place with a natural twist where we can share ours and learn from the others. Explore the Fabriek Magnifique festival together with us and join the band this Saturday in the early afternoon. We offer you a flavor of The Beatles with a twist, a warmup for a fine second day of this ever growing festival.

BeApple goes back to when again

Do you remember our gig in Helmond a few years ago? One of the few places in the province of Brabant (The Netherlands) where you still can taste of what it must have been here in the sixties. Now we’re back again in the parish hall of the St. Lambertus church in Helmond, where Dutch ‘hit killers’ like Q65 and The Golden Earrings appeared on stage long time ago. The owners of Hotel St.Lambert still sense a secret wish of many people longing for these special moments. The Sunday ‘Lambertussoos’, means back to the sixties with live music from the best acts in the genre. It’s our turn again on Sunday 20 March to do the job. Feel free to join us.


Date: Sunday 20 March
Where: Hotel St.Lambert, Helmond (NL), Markt 2
Showtime: 16:00 u
Tickets: Free of charge

BeApple opens BeatleBrainia 2016

For those who still hardly noticed (hard to imagine because of the beautiful poster and flyer), tomorrow, Saturday January 16th, the second edition of BeatleBrainia takes place at Effenaar Eindhoven.

BeatleBrainia is initiated by members of BeApple and Marco van Oosterhout, therefore of course we also take the stage. This time we’ll kick off in a modest way so there is plenty of the time left for the other great Beatles tribute bands coming from various corners of Europe.

“International Beatles year starts here!”, Do not miss it!

Date: Saturday 16 January
Where: Effenaar, Eindhoven (NL)
Doors: 15:00 (showtime 16:00)
