Like the original Fab Four, The Mersey Beatles were all born in Liverpool. Since 1999 they have been recreating the sights and sound of the Beatles with a very authentic & distinctly Liverpool flavoured tribute.
John Lennon’s sister, Julia Baird, said of the band,
“The Mersey Beatles are the most authentic I’ve heard…& I’ve heard them all.”
According to The British Beatles fan club,
“The Mersey Beatles are the best Beatles tribute band around.”
The Mersey Beatles were the resident Beatles tribute band at The Cavern club in Liverpool for 10 years from 2002 – 2012. Having made a return in 2014 gigs at the club are more infrequent these days as touring commitments have taken over.
It won’t surprise you to read that the boys became the first Beatles tribute band to have played at the Cavern more times than THE Beatles. The original fab four clocked up 292 performances there.
When asked about The Mersey Beatles performances at The Cavern Joe Flannery, Brian Epstein’s assistant said,
“When I saw them play in The Cavern, they perfectly recreated the atmosphere that the original Beatles produced. It was like listening to The Beatles again.”
Former booking manager for The Cavern Club, Steve Panter, added, “The Mersey Beatles do all the same kind of banter and crowd involvement, but it’s not rehearsed or fake, that’s just how they are. If The Beatles were still going today, they’d be exactly like The Mersey Beatles.”
The Mersey Beatles are the headline act at shows and festivals around the world including: America, Sweden, Malaysia, Australia, Germany, Indonesia, France, Italy, Belgium, Finland, Denmark, Norway and all over the UK.
The boys are still the band of choice at such Liverpool attractions as The Beatles Story Museum and The Hard Days Night Hotel. They are also the only Beatles band recommended by the Penny Lane Development trust. They are the only born, bred and based Liverpool Beatles tribute.
Film producer, Julia Stanndard says, “The Mersey Beatles are the next best thing to the original Beatles.”
