Beatles tribute - Biography
The BUGLES - Beatles tribute band with their professional approach are amongst the leading Czech Beatles cover bands. The Bugles members have a wide range of experience both from a long-time musical education and the performance of many concerts (both classical and pop music).
Established in Prague since 2000 they have performed hundreds of successful gigs for: Companies (e.g. KPMG, ČEZ, TV Nova - the anniversary gala attended by the President of the Czech Republic, SKANSKA, ČKD, Bontonland, TPCA, Baťa), Music clubs (e.g. Rock-café, Futurum, Klub Lávka, Limoádový Joe), at balls (Ball of Lobby ČR, Ball of Sokolov Miners) or Music festivals (e.g. Prague Muzeum Night, Beatlemania, Rock Trey Hranice).
To ensure an absolutely authentic sound, The Bugles use the same high-quality instruments and equipment as The Beatles did – Rickenbacker, Hofner, Gretsch, Epiphone, Gibson, Fender, Ludwig and Vox.
Their goal is not only a precise musical performance but also a visual performance and stage show. This is based on 5 sets of exact copies of suits and original Beatle-boots. An undisputable quality of The Bugles is their considerable visual and vocal resemblance with The Fab Four which is gained by their stylish hairdos, in detail imitated movements and, of course, the left-handed bass-guitarist.
The band's image and their attention to detail will satisfy even the most die-hard fans of the original. Music by John Lennon and Paul McCartney is everlasting. Just close your eyes, listen and you will feel like being in the 1960s at a Beatles concert...
