The Mersey Beatles, an all-Liverpool-born Beatles tribute band and the house band for over a decade at the world-famous Cavern Club, are coming back to the Aronoff Center’s Jarson-Kaplan Theater on Friday, July 22 at 8:00 PM after a sold-out show last fall.
Tickets are $41.75, $51.75and $71.75-VIP (includes meet & greet with the band and Julia Baird) and are on sale now at www.cincinnatiarts.org, (513) 621-ARTS , and the Aronoff Center Ticket Office. The show is appropriate for all ages.
John Lennon’s sister Julia Baird, author and director of the Cavern Club, will be in attendance selling and signing copies of her book Imagine This: Growing Up with My Brother John Lennon at the general merchandise table before, during, and after the show.
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 perfected their act before launching a global rock music revolution in the 1960s.
Since 1999, the band has played sell-out shows in more than twenty countries, recreating The Beatles’ most popular hits. The show spans the Fab Four’s entire catalogue, with four costume changes and authentic Liverpool accents, wit, and charm. The Mersey Beatles recreate The Beatles’ image and sound with amazing accuracy using replica Hofner, Rickenbacker and Gretsch guitars, and VOX and Ludwig gear.
