Many bands traveled over 7,000 miles from South America to attend the Liverpool Beatles Festival this weekend brought with them their incredible energy and a rocking beat that drove audiences wild last night.
The Greets, a band from Cordoba, Argentina, went wild on stage jumping, clapping, and getting the audience to sing along when they performed at the back stage in the Cavern Club. They played a wide range of songs from All My Loving to A Day in the Life with improvised and exciting sound effects and Eleanor Rigby to Revolution.

Across the alley at the Cavern pub, The Brothers, also from Argentina, were rocking to packed audiences who squeezed in to be a part and enjoy. The Brothers band has a lead singer who looks very much like Paul and the other singer wearing a cap looks very much like John and they also sounded very much like Paul and John as well.
Up the street at the Adelphi hotel which is the center of the Beatles festival, another band, Clube Big Beatles from Brazil, was rocking audiences with a powerful backbeat as they belted out classics such as You Can't Do That. They were inducted into the Beatle Week Hall of Fame last year, and this year is their 18th anniversary of playing at the Liverpool Festival.
The Liverpool Beatles Festival is truly international, with bands from all over the world travelling many thousands of miles away to celebrate Beatles music and to have a good time. Last night, the bands from Latin America really brought the house wherever they played with their energy, their music, their passion for Beatles music and being here in Liverpool to share this with their fans.
