Italian Bee Gees with Blue Weaver and Dennis Bryon

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'.

Vince Melouney
Vince Melouney:
Born August 18 in Sydney Australia. In 1963 Vince was listening to the new music coming out of Great Britain. Through Nat Kipner Vince was invited to play on various sessions for the BEE GEES. The songs he played on were released on different Albums, such as the original "Spicks and Specks" or the compilation "inception / Nostalgia". In October 1966 Vince headed off to London to further his musical career. The Bee Gees made the journey to London a couple of months later signing a record contract with Robert Stigwood at Nems Enterprises (The Beatles management). Through THE EASYBEATS (Who were also in London at the time and friends of Vince') heard the Gibb Brothers were in town and he made contact. He was asked to join them and their drummer Colin Petersen in their recording sessions. Once the Album "Bee Gees First" had been completed, Vince became the official 5th member. The Bee Gees proved with their second album that they had really become a tight unit. The overall sound was much heavier and Vince' lead guitar was more prominent on several songs. Vince stayed with the BEE GEES till the beginning of 1969 and was part of the worldwide success of the group.

Paola Italy
The Egiziano Brothers had a plan and a wish already for quite some time. To personally meet the first Bee Gees leadguitarist Vince Melouney. I recently talked with them about it and how great it would be to have him visit their home in Italy. In the first tourbreak of the 2016 Massachusetts tour it all happened and another dream came true for The Egiziano Brothers when Vince visited them at home in Italy.
Italian Bee Gees: 'Today another great emotion... Vince Melouney, guitarist and band member of the Bee Gees, came to visit us in our town... in our home... thank You very much Vince, we feel honored!'

3 special Italian Bee Gees concerts in Italy featuring Blue Weaver.


See video from 13.45 untill 17.35 www.rai.tv

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!

August 11. Paola, Contrada Fosse, "Sagra da 'Grispedda"

Soundcheck Fosse   © S. Weaver
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.

August 12. Amantea (CS), Lungomare (along the beach)

Sound check Amenthea,  ©  Marion Adriaensen
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.
