The Merseybeats

£2000 - £3000

It all started for The Merseybeats in 1961, when they were then known as The Mavericks and made up of only Tony Crane and Bill Kinsley. The band has expanded and changed drastically since then.

With the addition of David Elias and Frank Sloane they became a four piece. They were then renamed The Mersey Beats by Bob Wooler, the famous M.C of the Cavern Club.

The name stuck but the members didn't, The Merseybeats became a well-known band and Frank Sloane was replaced by John Banks and David Elias by Aaron Williams. The band were originally signed to Brian Epstein, who also managed The Beatles. After a dispute over clobber, the Merseybeats parted way with Epstein... a decision they have regretted ever since.

A Merseybeats performance is spectacular and pulsating experience, classic hits' Think Of You' 'Wishin & Hopin' and 'Sorrow' are combined with emotive ballads and explosive pyrotechnic sets.
