Friday 26th April 7.30pm / Main House


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.

The show includes 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!

‘9/10! Outstanding! A ’must see’ show’ – Writebase

 ‘This is as close as time travelling back to that unique era as you can get, and it’s well worth the journey’ – North West End.
