Celebrate the Anniversary of The Rolling Stones Birmingham Debut on Sunday 24 September

Come On down to Fletchers Bar on King's Heath's York Road on Sunday 24 September where Satisfaction is guaranteed as  we celebrate the 54th Anniversary of the Rolling Stones first ever performance in Birmingham at the old Ritz Ballroom.

Formed in London in 1962 by Brian Jones after he met up with Mick Jagger and Keith Richards who had been childhood friends, the Rolling Stones started out as a blues group taking their name from the title of a song by Muddy Waters. For the whole of 1962 they played exclusively in the London area. But all that changed on 7 June 1963 after they released their first single a cover of Chuck Berry's "Come On". Just a few months later on 14 September 1963 they played one of their first ever gigs outside London and their first ever in Birmingham at King's Heath's Ritz Ballroom. Joining Brian, Mick and Keith on the tiny stage were Bill Wyman and Charlie Watts. The day after they returned to London to play at the Great Pop Prom at the Royal Albert Hall! And when they returned to Birmingham the following year they played the much larger venues of the Hippodrome and the Town Hall. They then went onto become the world's greatest Rock and Roll Band in the world selling over 200 million albums.

From 3 to 6 pm some great local musicians including Get Stoned, Goodall, Mr Apollo 3, Ant's Cover Up, The Mighty Crawdaddys and Harmonica Bob and Oz will perform their interpretations of classic Rolling Stones songs at Fletchers Bar & Eatery directly opposite the burnt down ruins of the old Ritz Ballroom.

Get your tickets now for this hugely popular annual event that usually sells out in advance.

The Mersey Beatles Sgt Pepper 50th Anniversary Show Live At the Hare & Hounds on June 4th

It was 50 years ago in June 1967 that The Beatles released what is regarded by many to be the greatest album of all time - Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.

Now King's Heath Walk Of Fame are delighted to present The Mersey Beatles in a special intimate gig at the Hare & Hounds on Sunday 4 June to jointly celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the album's release and the 54th Anniversary of The Beatles third and final appearance in 1963 at the now sadly burnt down Ritz Ballroom next door to the Hare & Hounds on York Road.

Described by the British Beatles Fan Cub as 'the Best Beatles tribute band', The Mersey Beatles were all born and grew up in Liverpool. They were the resident band at the legendary Cavern Club for over 10 years and now regularly tour throughout Europe and the U.S.A. Earlier this year they returned to perform their Sgt Pepper show at Liverpool's prestigeous Epstein Theatre.

John Lennon's sister Julia Baird comparing them to other Beatles tribute bands said 'The Mersey Beatles are the most authentic I've heard ... and I've heard them all'.

A British Beatles Fan Club review said 'The quality of the music was superb with each song reproduced in the original key with spot-on harmonies and perfect guitar solos that had the audience marvelling at the sheer quality of the talent on view'.

Joe Flannery, Brian Epstein's assistant, said 'When I saw them in The Cavern they perfectly recreated the atmosphere that the original Beatles produced. It was like listening to The Beatles again'.

In the first half of tonight's concert The Mersey Beatles will perform Sgt Pepper in it's entirety and in the second 20 of The Beatles greatest hits.

Doors open 7 pm.

Support from PETERS & DOG

Tickets cost £15 cash from Kitchen Garden Cafe or £15 + booking fee from www.skiddle.com/e/12922152

Please note the Hare & Hounds is an upstairs standing and dancing venue just like the old Ritz Ballroom.
