AMONG the Elvises, Queens, Mariah Careyes, and other musical stars that came from all around Europe to compete at the International Festival of Revival Bands in Poland, the Slovak-Czech band The Beatles scored the best. The Beatles Revival Band, or simply Brouci (Beatles), won the festival's main and audience award.

The band is formed from the Košice band The Backwards and two new Czech members. As The Backwards, the band won the international Beatlefest in New York City in 1998, and repeated the success in 2003. Its members have also played their Liverpool icons in Prague and Bratislava musicals. The Backwards transformed into the Slovak-Czech formation Brouci after organisational problems inside the band.
