The Mersey Beatles Sgt Pepper 50th Anniversary Show on Sunday 4th June 2017
It was 50 years ago this month that The Beatles released what many regard as the greatest pop album of all time - Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.
To celebrate King's Heath Walk Of Fame are delighted to present The Mersey Beatles in a special intimate gig at the Hare & Hounds on Sunday 4 June to jointly celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the album's release and the 54th Anniversary of their final appearance in 1963 at the now burnt down Ritz Ballroom next door to the Hare & Hounds on York Road.
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. Later this year they will return to perform their Sgt Pepper show at Liverpool's prestigeous 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'.
In the first half of tonight's concert The Mersey Beatles will perform Sgt Pepper in it's entirety and in the second 20 golden greatest hits.
Doors open 7 pm
Support will be provided by the superb local duo Peters & Dog who will be performing their own brand of acoustic psychedelia! Expect covers of songs by Pink Floyd and The Who as well as originals including their latest single Madam Misery about Syd Barrett. Get here early as they will help contribute to what promises to be a really great night out.
Music Genres: 60s, Pop, Rock
