[Posted by Adam Forrest on Thursday, 07/10/14 12:55 pm] [Full Blog] [Tweet] [Facebook]
Today, July 10, is the 50th anniversary of the release of the movie and the 45 single A Hard Day's Night. To celebrate the anniversary, Hungarian Beatles Supergroup The Bits has created a video playing A Hard Day's Night as authentically as possible.
Together since 2013, formed by friends who met in the local pub, The Bits leader Zsolt met Janos a year earlier, he became lead guitarist, long-time friend Bali was added on drums and bass player Albert completed the group. According to Zsolt, the players were all handpicked for their special Beatles knowledge and talent from other famous Hungarian indie or blues bands, that's why they call themselves a Supergroup, and although they're all from Hungary, Zsolt says that in The Bits, everybody's heart is Union Jack colored.
Rather than putting on costumes and fake mustaches like other tribute bands, the Bits instead concentrate on creating an authentic recreation of the sound of the Beatles as possible. The Bits plays in Hungary, mostly in the capitol city of Budapest, with great success, and have been invited to perform at the biggest Dutch all-art-festival called Big Rivers 2014 in Rotterdam.
The group has created a 50th year anniversary live performance of the A Hard Day's Night album, more details about this can be found on their Facebook page (mostly in Hungarian).
