Plus: Meet The Mersey Beatles and John Lennon’s Sister at The Village Theater at Cherry Hill
Following the success of their 2016 U.S. debut tour, The Mersey Beatles, an all-Liverpool-born Beatles tribute band and the house band for over a decade at the world-famous Cavern Club, will perform their Sgt. Pepper's 50th Anniversary Show at The Village Theater at Cherry Hill. The concert will take place Thursday, October 19, 2017 at 7:30 p.m. The venue is located at 50400 Cherry Hill Road. Canton, MI 4818.
John Lennon’s sister Julia Baird, author and Director of the Cavern Club, will also 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 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 20 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’ sound and image with amazing accuracy using replica Hofner, Rickenbacker and Gretsch guitars and VOX and Ludwig gear. This year, the band is celebrating 50 years of what is arguably the most iconic and influential album of all time - Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band!
