THE MERSEY BEATLES

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the release of ‘Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band’ album by The Beatles on 1st June 1967, the Grimsby Central Hall Trust is delighted to proudly present ‘The Mersey Beatles’ in concert performing “The Entire Sgt. Pepper Album” live in the first half of the show plus 20 Beatles Hits from all Eras in the second half.

Considered by critics and music lovers to be probably the most iconic and ground breaking album of all time the album features classic songs from the title song's regal blasts of brass and fuzz guitar to the orchestral seizure and long, dying piano chord at the end of "A Day in the Life," the 13 tracks on Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band including, A Day In The Life, With A Little Help From My Friends, She’s Leaving Home and Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds.

Like the original Fab Four, The Mersey Beatles are childhood friends who grew up in Liverpool. They are the only born, bred & based Liverpool Beatles tribute. Steven Howard, Mark Bloor & Brian Ambrose attended secondary school together in the city. David Howard and Steven Howard are cousins. Tony Cook, another friend from Liverpool, is the 5th Mersey Beatle. His keyboard skills make the hits of the later years come to life. The Mersey Beatles love of Beatles music shines through in every performance & together they capture the Beatles sound 100% live.

Since 1999 they have been recreating the sights and sound of the Beatles with a very authentic & distinctly Liverpool flavoured tribute. The Mersey Beatles were the resident Beatles tribute band at The Cavern Club in Liverpool for 10 years from 2002-2012. Having made a 12 month return in 2014 the boys have had to leave their residency at the world’s most famous club once again to tour the world.

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”

 

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”

Film producer, Julia Stanndard says, “The Mersey Beatles are the next best thing to the original Beatles”

The Mersey Beatles concert is a genuine Beatles extravaganza. Four costumes & a multimedia backdrop enhance the experience. However, the real showstopper here is the way in which The Mersey Beatles perform The Beatles greatest songs so naturally. All eras are covered & all your favourite Beatles songs are played 100% live & in the recorded key.

Every Mersey Beatles concert is a unique experience. There is no script, no acting, just great music & a desire to capture the spirit of The Beatles rather than mimic them. The band has a rare ability to indulge your nostalgia & be real & in the moment all at once.

According to The British Beatles Fan Club, “The Mersey Beatles are the best Beatles tribute band around”

If you are a Beatles fan, then this is definitely a night you’ll not want to miss.

This appearance by The Mersey Beatles is prompting considerable interest and we anticipate our 50th anniversary show will be an early sell-out so, to avoid disappointment, book your tickets today.
