KOSCIUSKO — The Mersey Beatles, a Liverpool-born Beatles tribute band and the house band for over a decade at the world-famous Cavern Club, will perform at Wagon Wheel Center for the Arts, Warsaw, at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, May 1.
Celebrating the 50th anniversary of “Abbey Road,” the band will play the entire album live followed by a set of greatest hits.
The Mersey Beatles are no ordinary tribute band. The lads grew up as childhood and schoolmate friends, just like The Beatles. They are the official Beatles tribute band representing the city of Liverpool, and from 2002 to 2012, they were the resident tribute band at The Cavern Club, the nightclub in Liverpool, England, where The Beatles performed their act before launching a global rock music revolution in the 1960s.
John Lennon’s sister and director of the Cavern Club endorses the band and traveled with them on their 40-date 2016 U.S. debut tour.
“There are a lot of Beatles tribute bands from all over the world, and I’ve seen them all, but The Mersey Beatles are the most authentic I have heard,” said Lennon.
Since 1999, the band has played sell-out shows in more than 20 countries, recreating the Beatles’ most popular hits. The show spans the Fab Four’s entire catalog with four costume changes and authentic Liverpool accents, wit and charm. The Mersey Beatles recreate the Beatles’ sound and image with amazing accuracy using replica Hofner, Rickenbacker and Gretsch guitars and VOX and Ludwig gear.
