This is Merseybeat

Preston Playhouse, Preston, PR1 2HB
Sat 13th July 2019

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 new show, features the Cavern Club’s resident Mersey beat combo, The Shakers and their ‘Maximum Merseybeat’ sound, just as it used to be, plus special guests Victoria Jones as 'Cilla' and Paul Molloy as 'Billy J Kramer'. The show features the hits, classic 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, Swinging Blue Jeans, Cilla Black and many more. It’s the beat that’s hard to beat!
