BIO (english): Keyboard player Riddo Ridberg (born 1960) currently runs four cover/tribute bands. The latest addition to the list is the Beatles tribute band She’s Leaving Home. As a huge Beatles fan, Ridberg has had the thought of starting the band for about 20 years, but had a hard time finding musicians that were up to par. The high skills required, from the musicians and singers, is essential for the band to sound like the original, as we all know. Some years ago, Ridberg became familiar with Myyri Ruokolahti, a young female singer with an amazing voice. They worked together in a show production in Pargas, Southwestern Finland. The puzzle was solved! Ridberg would not start a band that copied the original songs, but instead start a band with young musicians that made new and fresh, keyboard-driven arrangements of the songs; all this without changing the lyrics or melodies, and with a female singer as the front figure. The band was completed with the multi-talented musicians Anton Elmvik (bass) and Oliver Tschernij (drums and additional keyboards). At the moment, the band is playing songs from the following albums: A Hard Day´s Night, Help!, Rubber Soul, Revolver, Sgt. Pepper´s, Magical Myster Tour, ”The White Album”, Abbey Road, Let it Be.
Get back, While my guitar gently weeps, In my life, We can work it out, Here comes the sun, Help!, Eleanor Rigby, Got to get you into my life, I will, Blackbird, Birthday, I want to hold your hand, Can´t buy me love, Martha my dear and many more songs in new arrangements with a young female singer.
