“The New Tremendos” bring best in pop music to Sant Ferran's New Years Eve festival tent

tremendos2The Formentera Council's Office of Local Holidays has announced that “The New Tremendos” will spearhead celebratory efforts this New Years Eve. From 1.00am, the Catalan cover band, known for its frenetic spins on Spain's top radio hits, will rock us into 2017.

The seasoned six-member band has got a repertoire that bursts with cross-generational hymns and the best of the eighties, nineties and today. From well-known Spanish classics (Los Secretos, La Guardia, Tequila, Ramoncín, Seguridad Social, El Último de la Fila, Fito y los Fitipaldis, Morat [Como te atreves], Celtas Cortos, Efecto Pasillo...) and favourites of Catalan-language music (Sopa de Cabra, Txarango, Els Catarres, La Pegatina...) to planetary smash hits like AC/DC's 'Highway to Hell' and Guns'N'Roses' take on 'Knocking on Heaven's Door'...

The group, a gold standard among young music fans today, is also one of the most sought-after in Catalunya. Their fresh and highly varied performances are perfect for celebrations like this one. Moreover, they snagged the Musicat association of Catalan musicians' 'Música 100% en directe' seal of quality and, in 2011, the Arc award for best cover band from the region's guild of music representatives, promotors and managers.
