Lennon Deluxe

It was a Dec. 8 1990 when a group of friends composed of some of the finest musicians in Peru, decided to prepare a tribute to commemorate the tenth anniversary of the tragic death of John Winston Lennon. This 2007 have been fulfilled 17 years of that first staged in the Teatro Segura memorable, and its headquarters has finished moving Peruano to the precincts of Japanese theater. Through these years have been a number of original members and others have emigrated beatlemaniacos allowing the entry of new generations. Unfortunately, there was one that left us forever: Ernesto Samamé, who are dedicated to these lines.
Rain or shine, every year, the public of all ages filled the theater facilities, to the point that it has been necessary to expand the presentation to two per year: 7 and Dec. 8. What we detail below is a small curriculum that emphasizes the career of these great musicians Peruvians.

Very few people know that in 2003, a group called Peruvian Besonegro, trio formed by Lucho Núñez on guitar, Ernesto Samamé on bass, and Pepe Wherrens on drums, won by a number of bodies to touch the quota for Latin American issues for The Beatles at the legendary Cavern Club in Liverpool. The contest was held in Buenos Aires (Argentina) and as additional award, Lucho Núñez won the prize for best guitarist of the contest. On Thursday, August 21, 2003, had its first performance 45 minutes into the Cavern Club Front Stage, and then made a series of eight presentations at the Club as at the Annual Convention of Beatleweek Festival.
