Rubber Soul Beatles started their activities at the end of 2005 and get fans and admirers wherever they go. With a highly professional performance, the band chronologically tells the fantastic career of one of the biggest music groups that ever existed: The Beatles.
The band brings great importance to a visual and sound fidelity equal to the Fab Four. The stage accessories have exactly the same design, since all the equipment is authentic and of the same model. This includes the VOX amplifiers, the Rickenbacker and Gretsch guitars, and of course the famous Hofner Bass! Attention to detail is of paramount importance to the band, who spent hours perfecting Beatles art.
Currently, the band has 4 different costumes that refer to each of the different phases of the Beatles. From the famous costumes worn at the Ed Sullivan Show in 1964, to the famous Nippon Budokan show in Japan in 1966, re-imagining the costumes of stunning album Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club with high fidelity in 1967 and ending with the fantasy of the famous Beatles photo that crosses the pedestrian band on the 1969 album Abbey Road.
For Maurício Gomes (Paul McCartney) he says that it is a great challenge and a great pleasure to reproduce perfectly the vocal harmonies and all the bass lines. Gustavo Gazana (George Harrison) impresses with his fidelity in guitar timbres, while João Rodrigo (John Lennon) adds that the songs are performed with all the enthusiasm and energy of the Beatles at the height of Beatlemania. The songs are wonderful and we are proud to be part of this project, concludes Tico Giacominni (Ringo Starr).
