Yes!! vi har nailat Beatle Week 2015! Alla band måste spela någon LP, Beatles eller Post-Beatles. THE BERTILS fick på sin lott att spela Paul Mc Cartneys Ryska album (som heter снова в ссср, vilket betyder Back in the USSR), på Cavern Club Front Stage! Janne Strååt bygger hus i sommar också så vi förstärker oss med Jimmie Rudolfsson, mannen som redan nästan ÄR Macca!
Thanks everyone who joined! The Quarter Men. Stefan Fredrickson, our bassman during BW 2014. Bosse Hedman, a "Classic" Bertil. Olle Bengtsson of Pepperland who keyboarded some Beatle tunes for us, and also entertained solo, "After Work Style", Phil Evans of the Overtures who played some Shadows, The Who and Dave Clarke 5 with us. For Pictures, see several entries on facebook but also some filed here, under "pics".
Stefan Fredriksson will play bass with us during Beatle Week! Perfect! He has travelled to Beatle Week before so he knows whereabouts ´n stuff. And he will suggest some alternativ songs for us! His "regular" band is Sea Blue Band! Beware!
Janne Strååt will be building a summer house this summer! Doug will take the lead guitar. We need a basist for Beatle Week in August !!! Here is a link to Beatle Week

Bosse Hedman unfortunately has resigned from the band, but was promoted to honoray member! Douglas came in, see member file! Actually, THE VERY ORIGINAL BERTILS will play with friends in Sälen some time later this week, with Jan Sjöstedt on drums (we think). This is a private party, but you may join after applying using the contact info on this page.....entrance fee is beer or wine and/or food.
We got all tracks from our gig at the Cavern in August. Thanks Ricky and Shanna.
Time to do some overdubbing, mix it, and then marry it to video clips to make a DVD....
And in conjunction with Beatle Day, we had 25 minutes on morning prime time on Radio Sweden Gothenburg. The idea was to play live, but we could not get Olle or stand-in Uld on drums. Instead we recorded some material in Jannes basement.....
