This year’s opening band of Gig on the Green will be ‘Tortuga’. Tortuga is an energetic 4 Piece band from Girvan that consists of Kieran, Kris, Kev and Paul.
After years of friendship and musical adventures the lads thought they would have one last swing at musical success and thus, Tortuga was born.
Tortuga’s strength lies within the influences that each member brings to the band’s sound, such as rock, pop punk, hip hop, grunge, funk and many more!
Tortuga are known to have a good time both on stage and off stage, so get yourself to a show!
Also performing at this year’s event will be Them Beatles who give audiences the opportunity to ‘clap their hands and rattle their jewellery’ to one of the UK’s most sought after authentic Beatles tribute shows.
With their unparalleled attention to detail, both musically and visually,
Them Beatles have been hailed as the next best thing to seeing the original Fab Four. The group possesses a natural stage craft and a unique band chemistry that guarantees to make every Them Beatles show an unforgettable experience. Them Beatles create a concert experience of The Beatles covering all aspects of their career: from the early days of “The Cavern Club” and “Beatlemania” to the mind bending psychedelic period (featuring superbly detailed handmade Sgt. Pepper costumes, made from the original patterns) through to the “Apple Years” and the final “Rooftop concert” in 1969.
Having tread the boards at some of the UK’s most prestigious theatres, Them Beatles have also toured around the world, taking their own brand of Beatlemania to South Africa, New Zealand, Canada, Norway and Holland with tours of Australia and Europe coming in 2013.
Having a genuine love of the music, the style and everything that encompasses The Beatles makes Them Beatles a must see tribute for all fans, of all ages, to the greatest group of all time!
