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 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

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!

An Italian band playing Italian music for the Italian community in Chicago is nice
but when you find out this band plays Bee Gees music too......
So another great experience for the Italian Bee Gees, doing an open air live show with the skyline of Chicago in the back ground.

The Italian Bee Gees - "Stayin' Alive"
Info: Who are the Italian Bee Gees:
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"

Soundclip: 'Stayin' Alive'
The group was invited to go to England to represent Italy in the show called: Stars in Their Eyes European Championship 2002, hosted by Matthew Kelly.
Pasquale tells:"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' 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 great adventure for the Egiziano Brothers and from these very first years on they got lots of help and advice from their good friend and fan Giovanni Perrotta.
He had lived in England for many years and afterwards worked in the restaurant of the Egiziano family in Paola.
The brothers suddenly were in many different news papers with stories and photos.
Click here for some Newspaper articles.
In the same week they spent in England for their TV appearance they went (always together with Giovanni Perrotta) to see the house where the Bee Gees lived in Keppel Road,
Chorlton, Manchester, and they played Bee Gees songs in front of the old house. It was such a dream coming true.
Pasquale: "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'
