Marion: "The Italian Bee Gees (personal friends of GSI. They first contacted me in 2003) have a special section on this website where you can find all the information about the group.
They love helping to keep the Bee Gees legacy alive because they simply adore The Bee Gees music and love singing Gibb compositions live on stage with their band.
We have a list with all kinds of tribute/cover bands on our GSI link page next to the IBG, but for me the Italian Bee Gees are different from all the others.
They do not impersonate The Bee Gees but sing the Gibb songs live for their audiences with all their heart and soul.
For them important is: their unconditional love for the Bee Gees music which they enjoy to share with their audiences with lots of enthusiasm and passion.
This is also the reason why former Bee Gees band member Blue Weaver some time ago chose The Egiziano Brothers to work with and to perform the Bee Gees music once again on stage with these three brothers.
I think there's no way anyone can ever copy The Bee Gees in what way ever. Their voices and sound are unique. So why try?!
That's why I am not the biggest fan of those type of tribute groups who try to act, sound, speak, walk, dress etc. like our Gibb Brothers.
I am more impressed by a group like the Italian Bee Gees who are a good band performing the Gibb music with heart and soul live on stage, that's to me more important.
Even Barry mentioned in an interview that he loves to see other artists sing their music: - Barry: 'I always get a kick out of someone else singing our songs'!
I personally think he's not that fond of artists who try to impersonate him and his brothers in every way on stage.
I also believe that artists shouldn't need to look and act like the Gibbs but in the first place try to keep that wonderful BG music alive."
This GSI section is a tribute of The Egiziano Brothers to:
The Legend - The Bee Gees and their music'.
Spain, November 8, 2014

Italian Bee Gees concerts in The Netherlands
September 19 and 20 The Italian Bee Gees including Blue Weaver gave concerts in The Netherlands.
The first night in Geldrop and the second night in Vlierden, near Deurne.
It was a weekend of seeing lots of friends and fans again and nice to have our Italian friends once again in our country as well.
It were 2 nights of singing, dancing and making fun.
Thanks again for the music. !!
August 10. Longobardi, (CS), piazzale Beato San Nicola, Longobardi Marina
The first of 3 free concerts of The Italian Bee Gees, their band and singers featuring Blue Weaver as well!!
The whole area was beautifully decorated with bright coloured lights and in the warm summer night everyone enjoyed the sounds of the Bee Gees music.
There were several banners to thank the group for doing this show in Longobardi. A good friend of the Egiziano Brothers had been doing his utmost to make this show happen and it was a night never to forget!!
There even was a special mention by the group to me and some friends for our support and coming from abroad to watch this and visit them and we received a really beautiful bunch of flowers.
It was heartwarming. For me it was the first time I saw a performance of my Italian friends amongst the Italians in their homeland and although I had an accident just before the concert started:
I had the time of my life enjoying my fave Bee Gees music.
Beautiful fireworks completed the evening!
It means: Festival of the "Crespella" a typical fried pancake used in the neighbourhoods south of Paola,
( The Fosse area is the place where Walter, David and Pasquale were born and lived the first years of their lives).
This concert was a very special and emotional one for The Brothers, for me and all their family and friends.
The gig was at a small festival and surrounded by some kind of market place with many nice stalls where you could get lots of things to eat and drink all night.
The place like mentioned was there where the boys spent the first years of their lives with their mom and dad
(their dad died earlier this year but he was there in spirit that evening more than ever!) and their grand parents. The audience: all their close friends and family which gave this night a very, very special feeling.
I was sitting next to their proud mother and we both shed some tears and held hands. The audience sang and danced all night to the sounds of all these wonderful Bee Gees songs.
Very special also was the Italian friend of The Brothers, Pietro Serpa, who came on stage with his accordion and sang with the band the song: Il Mondo, a song which has very special meaning to the family, so beautiful!!! (Davide Egiziano: ' With Pietro I started singing in Paola first, then all around Calabria, in private parties and squares. He was the really first one who gave me this opportunity many years ago.
Me and Pietro (just the 2 of us), played at Fosse for 6 or 7 consecutive years in the past he's a great friend of us and was also a great friend of our father.')
Later that night the group was presented with an award: This award plaque was given to the boys by the guys of the organization in Fosse, as "Grazie" for being there with the whole show.
I'm sure this was the most special IBG performance I've ever visited.
We'd left early for the venue to see the sound check of the band at the beach as well as the wonderful sunset!!
A perfect spot for a great show.
First we had dinner with the whole band and then it was waiting for a political meeting on the square to finish their discussing.
Finally...... the band could start to play and told the audience: after all this talking it's time for some music and everyone agreed and became enthusiastic right away.
Another warm night to enjoy my favourite music amongst a whole square of enthusiast Italian people.
During the concert me and my husband as well as friends of ours were again mentioned by the Egiziano Brothers for being present, which was so kind.

Back To The Netherlands
After a number of shows in both Italy and Spain this Summer it was high time for The Italian Bee Gees to pay a visit to The Netherlands again.
So they did last month when they gave two concerts in the south of the country and this year with special guest star: key board player of the old Bee Gees band: Blue Weaver.
First show was in Brunssum on October 18.
Thanks to the help from Lita, the Dutch Tina Turner, it became a wonderful party. She had been very busy organizing the evening.
The next day we drove to Deurne to see the second concert, also a wonderful party including a DJ.
After both concerts there was time for the fans to have a chat with The Egiziano Brothers and Blue Weaver and take a photo during the meet and greet!!
Let's hope they'll come back to The Netherlands next year again.
Fabrizio and Emiliano
A pity drummer Emiliano and key board player Fabrizio will be leaving the band to go and start doing other things in music.
The Italian Bee Gees band will begin the new year with some new band members.
Thanks Emiliano and Fabrizio for all the music and we hope to see you back again some time!

Italian Bee Gees on tour with Blue Weaver
Everyone including mother Egiziano singing on stage with Blue during rehearsals
Today I finally got the answer: YES.....
Keyboard player of the original Bee Gees Band Mr. Blue Weaver will be doing a 4 month tour with The Italian Bee Gees through Germany.
The Massachusetts production is telling the story of The Bee Gees with live music, photo, film, dance and actors, a very special experience.
The three Italian brothers learned to know Blue early this year when Blue Weaver did a guest appearance during one of their shows of the 2012 German tour.
I'm very happy that again one of their wishes will come true. It was nice trying to get Blue in touch with the Italian brothers but I knew their dream would be;
to really work with him during a tour.
All fans who like to experience Massachusetts and do not have tickets yet: please see the tour schedule and ticket information and try to buy your tickets for this special event which will start January 16th 2013.

The Italians conquered Spain
November 2, 2012
High time for the first ever Italian Bee Gees concert in Spain.
Location: The Event Hall near Castle/Casino Peralada in Catalunya
Review: the audience was very enthusiastic and the whole band loved this performance. It was very successful and it asks for more in the near future!!!
(source: facebook casino Peralada)
Comment from their Spanish promotor:
"I want to thank you for your great show in Spain yesterday.
We work with a lot of artists but no one like you!
Thanks for your professionalism, all of you.
Better than a band or a team, you're a family. Three real brothers working with some brothers from the heart!
The best show ever (until your next show in Spain!)
Hope to work with all of you real soon!
Grazzie Mille amici!!!!"
Some comments from The Italian Bee Gees Band:
"Last Friday night we all had a very good time at Casino Peralada in Catalunya..!!
Thank you very much to all the people who worked on this Concert.
It's so nice to see how Music brings people together..people from different countries, different cultures, different lives..who feel the same emotions..just listening with their eyes closed, or dancing, or trying to hide the tears of a memory...
This makes us feel alive.
This is the power of The Bee Gees music".
The Spanish experience was really great!!!!
We've found a really professional and in the same time "easy" organization..
The Peralada Event Hall (close to a magnificent Castel and Casino) was completely filled by 450 guests at the dinner, and from the first song
we understood it would be a nice evening..!!
Many people have been raised from the chair to come down the stage (we started our show at the end of the dinner), singing and dancing.
And at the end of EVERY song we were "hit by a rumble" of the audience!
It was a crescendo for all the 2 hours of music..:
Italian Bee Gees in Spain
Next live performance of Italian Bee Gees will be November 2nd. in Spain.
Casino Peralada, Castillo de Peralada.
Before that they'll give one more show in Italy at a private party in Rende (CS) on October 31st.
For more details about their performances please visit:

Italian Bee Gees give tribute to The Bee Gees with shows in Holland.
Again The Egiziano Brothers came to visit The Netherlands to pay tribute to The Gibb Brothers.
The Italian Bee Gees did 2 shows, one in Limburg, a complete 2 hours show October 5th., and one in Overijsel on October 6th. (3 times 45 minutes during a covers festival event).
The audience was very enthusiastic and although many of them, specially during the very crowded performance in Overijsel, had never heard from the Italian brothers before,
they most of all loved their way of performing, like they mentioned to me: 'these boys play and sing The Bee Gees music with so much passion!!'
The Egiziano Brothers sent this message today to thank everyone:
Once again, we want to thank -with all our heart- our Dutch and German friends..!! Too many to mention them all, but THANK YOU for all your love and affection..
And thank you to let us feel at home, everywhere we are...
We are one, for ever..
The Italian Bee Gees
(October 8th. 2012)

Italian Bee Gees in French TV Show
The Italian Bee Gees report about their performance in the French TV Show:
The Italian Bee Gees in Paris
"The TV Show on French TV "TF1", 'Qui sera le meilleur ce soir' last Saturday
April 17th was GREAT! We won our "Band Battle" against The Beatles tribute
(Four very nice boys from Essex-London called "like the Beatles").
In front of a jury composed by three famous French actors; Christine Bravo, Jean-Luc
Lemoine et Laurent Ournac and hosted by Christophe Dechavanne and Victoria
Silvstedt we (the Egiziano Brothers ) performed live: "Staying Alive" and "Night Fever" with the French TV Orchestra and the final score was:
Bee Gees -Beatles: 3 to 0.
It was a very fun game that gave us a great satisfaction and the consent of the French public. This is because the Bee Gees are very appreciated and loved in France!
The program was followed by six million viewers in France, Belgium and Switzerland".
More updates about the group:
The Italian Bee Gees have two confirmed shows in the Netherlands.
Next August 13th in Ulft at the Huntenpop-festival

I'm Pasquale (one of the "Italian Bee Gees") This is our story in a few words
"We are three Italian brothers and we were all born in
Paola, a little town of Calabria, south of Italy. Our names are: Walter (born 20.05.1969), Davide (born 10.11.1974) and Pasquale (born 14.07.1977) singing and playing like Barry, Robin and
Maurice. Our surname is Egiziano. We loved the Bee Gees since we can remember also we are singing together as the Bee Gees since past four years. As we said we've been in England to represent Italy in
the show called Stars in Their Eyes European Championship 2002, hosted by Matthew Kelly. On August 2002 The producers assistant of ITV 1 Granada (the English network who shows the program) saw us on Italian
television (canale 5) in a program called 'Momenti di Gloria' hosted by Mike Bongiorno. From this program (Momenti di Gloria) we have been choosen to represent Italy among ten European Nations ( UK,
Netherland, Belgium, Sweden, Norway, Spain, Germany, Ireland and Portugal) and we reached the 2nd. place singing 'Stayin' Alive' with 81 points of 90.
It was a fantastic adventure and in the same week we went (always with our friend-interpreter Giovanni Perrotta) to see the house where the Bee Gees lived in Keppel Road Chorlton, Manchester, and we played so many
songs of them on front of their old house. It was such a dream came true. Also we took a piece of old window as a souvenir and Robin, guest in a program hosted by Frank Skinner, saw our performance in 'Stars in Their
Eyes' and he was so happily impressed and he joked about our 2nd. place and the way we'd stolen a piece of his old house. We don't just love their music but we love them, their way of life, their way of seeing
people and things, we love the brothers Gibb as we are three brothers as well. When we sing their songs our feeling is like they are always with us, like they guide us. They are our guardian angels! We were so sorry when Maurice died, it was like we have
lost a brother"
