Do you still suffer from Beatlemania? Yes? Well, you can indulge your passion for the Fab 4 on Thursday, June 15, when the tribute band Now & Then takes the stage at the Performing Arts Centre.
This members of this Argentina-based band are: Edgardo Rodriguez Baez as Paul McCartney, Nicolas Mansilla as John Lennon, Pablo Gutierrez as George Harrison and Nicolas Spadaccini as Ringo Starr.
Now & Then was born in 2011 in Buenos Aires,. In 2014 they won the “battle of bands” in the 14th Latin America Beatle week, organized by The Cavern Club Buenos Aires. This prestigious contest gathers the best South American Beatle tributes every year. Two of the band’s members have been named Best Guitar Player for three consecutive years (2012, 2013 and 2014) and Best Drummer in 2013.
The show is divided into three parts, recreating: first,the Apple Rooftop concert; then, the experimental period which includes the Sgt Pepper album, and everybody’s favourite, the early period or Beatlemania.
Even though Now & Then is very respectful of the Beatle roots in each song they play, its members put their stamp on them. This passion is what makes them sound more original fresh when they play live.
