- The historic event
of being a guest intro band for TOTO concert on 15th of August on

Interesting facts about “Nevrene Bebe”
- The song “Dvoje” from “Neverne Bebe II” (1997.) was claimed to be the best ballad in Serbia and Montenegro in the last 10 years, by the opinion of numerous radio and TV stations, and the surveys they had performed.
- This song’s lyrics are placed in the book “TOP 50 best ex-YU lyrics” which put Milan Djurdjevic side by side to Dj. Balaševic, Dž. Štulic, G.Bregovic, D.Topic and all other great names in YU rock.
- The crew change in 2003 speeded up work on new CD ”The best of”; its appearance made it best selling R’N’R album in region.
- On “Suncane Skale” summer festival in July of 2004, the band was rewarded for it, making it best rock album in SiCG after only two months from the official release.
- The two new vocals, ofcourse, take most of credits for new sound and energy in band. Number of calls doubled, so the band has big concert activity.
- Jana Šušteršic – one of new singers, was born in Slovenia, and this fact will be quite helpful for breakthrough on the market there. Presenting work of N.Bebe in Slovenia is one of bands top priorities.
- Latest CD “Iza oblaka” has a great possibility to break a selling record in the whole region, but the result will be seen in a year or two, judging by the present market data.
- In order to promote the new CD, making at least 3 (or maybe more) new videos is planned; what is important is the fact that all songs have the same chance.
