Top Tribute Band Made In Liverpool headline Beatles Fest 2018 on Sunday 11th February

55 years ago in February 1963 The Beatles brought their Cavern Club show to Birmingham for the first time when they made their legendary appearance at King's Heath's old Ritz Ballroom next to the Hare and Hounds. Now history will repeat itself when the current Cavern Club resident band Made in Liverpool bring their show to the Hare and Hounds on Sunday 11 February to conclude a unique one day celebration of this historic event.

The Ritz Ballroom was one of four venues run by Irish Couple Ma and Pa Regan in the 1960's. Originally scheduled to appear in January, The Beatles had been prevented by blizzard like conditions from getting to the Ritz from another of the Regans' venues - the Plaza at Old Hill. When they did make it on 15 February, they had just got to No. 1 in the charts with Please, Please Me and had to enter the rear of the venue from Milford Place by a ladder!

From 3 pm to 6 pm a great selection of local musicians will perform their favourite Beatles songs in a special pre-Valentine's Day All You Need Is Love session at Fletchers Bar. Expect a range of musical styles including the jazz soul of Blue Silk, the folk rock of Mr Apollo, the Ukulele Theatre, the notorious Eggmen ,singer songwriter Tim Walkerdine, Peters plays Lennon plus many more.

At 7 pm doors will then open at the Hare and Hounds for an evening conceert by top tribute band Made In Liverpool to conclude Beatles Fest 2018.

Originally named The Fab Four they were the first Beatles tribute band to play the Cavern when it re-opened and are mentioned in music writer and Merseybeat historian Spencer Leigh’s book ‘The Cavern, The Most Famous Club in the World’. And they still continue to play at the Cavern on a regular basis.

Their performance as The Beatles has been described as unique, uncontrived, exciting and mind blowing!

All the members of the band are accomplished musicians and several have appeared in musical productions about The Beatles at the legendary Liverpool Everyman Theatre and throughout the UK.
