This is MerseybeatFriday 22 March 2019
It’s 1962 and there’s a whole lotta shakin’ going on in a backstreet beat cellar in Liverpool called the Cavern Club.
This is Merseybeat, the sixties sound of Liverpool, from the depths of Number 10, Mathew St. The ‘British Invasion’ starts here and during the next two years ‘Merseymania’ rules the world!
This new show, features the Cavern Club’s resident Mersey beat combo,The Shakersand their ‘Maximum Merseybeat’ sound, just as it used to be.
Featuring the Mersey Beat boom hits, Cavern stompers and a shot of rhythm & blues (with just a little rock’n roll on the side, just for good measure) from The Beatles, Gerry & The Pacemkers, The Searchers, Billy J Kramer, Swinging Blue Jeans, Cilla Black and some other guys.
It’s the beat that’s hard to beat!
