Like the original Fab Four, The Mersey Beatles are a band from the great city of Liverpool.
Since 1999 they have been recreating the sights and sound of the Beatles with a very authentic & distinctly Liverpool flavoured tribute.
The Mersey Beatles are childhood friends who grew up in Liverpool. They had a record collection in common. The Beatles records were always sitting on the very top of that pile…& they still are to this day.
Steven Howard, Mark Bloor & Brian Ambrose (Paul, John & Ringo) attended secondary school together in the city. Craig McGown completes the line up as George. Craig has proved a popular addition since joining in September 2017. Tony Cook, another friend from Liverpool, is the 5th Mersey Beatle. His keyboard skills are essential throughout but are most prevalent during the orchestral hits of the later years. The Mersey Beatles love of Beatles music shines through in every performance & together they capture the Beatles sound 100% live.
The Mersey Beatles played at the Smith Opera House in Geneva last night.
