Details

On February 9th 1961, The Beatles made the first of their 292 appearances at the now legendary Cavern Club in Mathew Street, Liverpool. The members of the Caven Beates, as well as being talented instrumentalists and singers, are hugely dedicated Beatle fans, intent on recreating their individual character to an unprecedented standard.

The show emulates with uncanny detail and meticulous accuracy, the rise of the greatest band in the world from the days of the Cavern through to the rooftop in Savile Row, London in 1969. The Cavern Beatles perform their entire 2 hour show completely live, using no backing tracks, producing a fully authentic representation of the music.

The band’s breath-taking attention to detail extends to the use of genuine 1960’s instruments and all of the equipment seen on stage is the same as that used by the Beatles wherever possible.

With their widespread appeal being more apparent than ever in the varying age groups that continue to follow the band, the Cavern Beatles are widely regarded as being as close to the real thing as they are ever likely to get.
