The Merseybeat musical!
It’s 1962 and there’s a whole lotta shakin’ goin 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 vibrant and exciting show features the Cavern Club’s resident Merseybeat combo, The Shakers and their authentic ‘Maximum Merseybeat’ sound plus guest artists, Victoria Jones as Cilla Black and Neil Ainsby as Gerry Marsden with Liverpool actor Paul Codman as the ‘host with the most’ and keyboard player Toni Baker from The Dakotas. 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 Pacemakers, The Searchers, Billy J Kramer & The Dakotas, The Merseybeats, Cilla Black, The Big Three and many more. It’s the beat that’s hard to beat!
