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'.

Titanic Concert Tour Premiere
Of course the Egiziano Brothers were present at the opening night of the
Titanic Concert Tour. A very special concert with music composed by Robin Gibb and son Robin John Gibb.
This was on October 23rd. in Taranto, Italy.
On the photo: The Italian Bee Gees with Robin-John Gibb and Dwina Gibb.
In the summer months the IGB, in between all kinds of other obligations and preparing for the upcoming new Massachusetts tour, did live performances in Italy.
Because of so much success during the first show on Sardinia the group did another concert on the Italian island, again at Forte Village on August 28th.
Mal is an Italian artist who recorded a great Italian version of "I've gotta get a message to you", entitled "Pensiero d'amore" in 1969. A great success for a great artist.
Lots of more plans for the coming period and probably more shows in Europe and other parts of the world. To begin with
Sept. 5. concert at Cassano allo Jonio (CS) Italy (see tour schedule Pdf.).
As soon as we have more concert dates and details which can be published, we will let you know.
One of the highlight will surely be: their January 15. 2016 concert in Moscow!
Right afterwards is the start of their new Massachusetts tour on January 20. 2016.

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.
