Whoever books The Beatz has already won. - Because this extraordinary show act from St. Gallen has much more to offer than just making good music. An evening with The Be atz begins when the lights go down and the spotlight falls on a logo that somehow reminds you of "The Godfather". The air shimmers. The audience holds its breath. Out of nowhere come three southern men with a touch of mafia flair about them. They wear stylish tailored suits, the whole stage sparkles cool in perfect black and white, and from somewhere a scene from "Scarface" can be heard. Then suddenly the trio puts on such a massive show of funk, soul and rock classics that the hall starts to shake - and the audience with it. "Of course our roots, which are in Greece and Italy, have an influence on the band's energy," explains frontman Gee. "We talk to each other a lot live, crack jokes and are just relaxed. The Mafia vibe, perfect lighting and super sound create a kind of total work of art at the concerts, which also carries us away ourselves. Together with the audience we dive into this world for one night. But even if the stage is sometimes smaller or we can not drive the complete lightshow, we give full throttle - The Beatz there is simply not with half power."
The Beatz consists of singer and guitarist Gee, bassist Petros and drummer Massimo, who after professional trainings in the USA and various projects with performances at the Montreux Jazz Festival, among others, have also been successful as a show act for several years. "We believe that a first-class cover version is always better than an average own song. With The Beatz, we make all the songs we choose our own, leaving our musical fingerprint." You can actually hear this attitude in the sound-powerful trio. Nothing is simply played down here, but downright celebrated: Whether funk classics like "Word Up", "Kiss" and "Sex Machine", soul favorites like "Superstition" and "Stand By Me" or rock planks of the variety "Fly Away", "Hey Joe" and "Walk This Way" - it's always 100% The Beatz. In addition, the huge repertoire of the Swiss is expanded by soulful ballads, casual hip hop and reggae elements and, of course, every now and then by current chart hits such as "Blurred Lines". No wonder that this band easily manages to animate the fans to dance and sing along: "We like to improvise and get people from the audience to join us on stage. Some of them often don't really dare at first, but eventually they enjoy it - and in the end it creates a party where everyone celebrates together." - The Beatz bring their show to the stage with so much professionalism, charm and nonchalance that there is no stopping them by the first encore at the latest. - And then it's long since happened with The Be atz and winning ...
