5 minutes with Break Free, about the magic and wonder of Queen
Q: Can you tell us about the origins of your band and how you all came together?
A: As a band, we came together through a shared passion for Queen’s music. Some of us, like Giuseppe and Kim, had previously played together in a band called Mugaen. The idea of paying homage to Queen struck us, and we quickly joined forces with Paolo and Sebastiano, whose exceptional musical skills emulate Brian May and John Deacon. This led to the formation of Break Free, with a mission to celebrate the extraordinary music of Queen.
Q: We know the story behind your band is the inspiration to celebrate Queen, but why did you all choose Queen out of all the iconic bands out there?
A: Queen has been an immense source of inspiration for each of us since our childhood. As lifelong fans, we deeply admire their groundbreaking music, electrifying performances, and the powerful legacy left behind by Freddie Mercury. Their songs have a timeless quality that resonates with people of all generations, and their ability to captivate audiences is unparalleled. By honouring Queen, we aim to preserve their spirit and share the magic they brought to the world with fans everywhere.
Q: Can you share some of the challenges you’ve faced as a band and how you’ve overcome them?
A: We face the challenge of delivering an authentic Queen experience while infusing our own energy into the performances. It requires meticulous attention to detail and a deep understanding of each band member’s style and nuances. We overcome these challenges through dedicated practice, continuous refinement, and a shared love for Queen’s music. By constantly honing our craft and striving for excellence, we aim to provide audiences with an unforgettable show.
Q: What does your creative process entail when channelling Queen & stepping into the persona of Freddie Mercury?
A: Our creative process involves meticulous study and analysis of Queen’s performances, as well as Freddie Mercury’s stage presence. Giuseppe, our lead singer, focuses on capturing Freddie’s body language, vocal timbre, accent, and pronunciation to create the illusion of witnessing the legend himself on stage. The rest of us also meticulously recreate Queen’s sound, movements, and energy, paying attention to the smallest details. Through intensive rehearsals, constant refinement, and a profound respect for Queen’s music, we strive to honour their legacy authentically.
Q: What do you consider to be the most rewarding aspect of being a musician who carries the name, Queen?
A: The most rewarding aspect of being musicians who carry the name Queen is the opportunity to bring joy and happiness to fans around the world. When we see the smiles on their faces and witness their passion for Queen’s music during our performances, it’s a truly gratifying experience. We take great pride in being able to recreate the magic of Queen’s concerts and provide fans with an unforgettable experience. The knowledge that we are keeping Queen’s legacy alive and inspiring a new generation of fans is incredibly rewarding!
