The Mersey Beatles
King's Heath Walk Of Fame are delighted to present the return of The Mersey Beatles to the Hare & Hounds after last year's sold out Sgt Pepper 50th Anniversary show. This year's show will celebrate "50 Years of Revolution" with highlights from The Beatles White Album and also the 55th Anniversary of The Beatles final appearance in 1963 at the now burnt down Ritz Ballroom next door to the Hare & Hounds on York Road.
Later this year The Mersey Beatles will be embarking on a major UK tour ending at the O2 Arena in Newcastle so this may be one of the last chances to see them close-up in an intimate setting.
Described by the British Beatles Fan Cub as 'the Best Beatles tribute band', The Mersey Beatles were all born and grew up in Liverpool. They were the resident band at the legendary Cavern Club for over 10 years and now regularly tour throughout Europe and the U.S.A.
John Lennon's sister Julia Baird comparing them to other Beatles tribute bands said 'The Mersey Beatles are the most authentic I've heard ... and I've heard them all'.
A British Beatles Fan Club review said 'The quality of the music was superb with each song reproduced in the original key with spot-on harmonies and perfect guitar solos that had the audience marvelling at the sheer quality of the talent on view'.
Joe Flannery, Brian Epstein's assistant, said 'When I saw them in The Cavern they perfectly recreated the atmosphere that the original Beatles produced. It was like listening to The Beatles again'.
Tonight's concert will include sections to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the White Album and the songs The Beatles would have played in 1963 when they made their final appearance at the Ritz Ballroom plus a great selection of greatest hits.
Doors open 7 pm
On Stage 7.45 pm
Please note that the Hare & Hounds is an upstairs standing venue just like the old Ritz Ballroom.
