The Mersey Beatles @ Beatles Fest 2016 on Sunday 14th February 2016
Just before jetting off for the first of four U.S.A concert tours in 2016, The Mersey Beatles will perform a special intimate gig at the Hare & Hounds organised by King's Heath Walk of Fame to celebrate the 53rd Anniversary of the 1963 Birmingham debut of The Beatles at the now burnt down Ritz Ballroom next door to the Hare & Hounds on York Road.
Like the original Fab Four, 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. Later in 2016 they will return to Liverpool to perform at two special shows at the Epstein Theatre.
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'.
Guaranteed to be the the only place to be on Valentine's evening, this concert will conclude King's Heath Walk of Fame's 'All You Need Is Love' Beatles Fest 2016 that starts with an afternoon concert at Fletchers Bar on York Road from 3 to 6 p.m.
Doors open 7 p.m. On Stage 7.45 p.m
Standing and Dancing Only
All the money raised will go towards supporting local charity King's Heath Walk of Fame's aim of celebrating King's Heath's amazing musical and cultural heritage including that of the old Ritz Ballroom.
