Satisfaction is guaranteed for Rolling Stones fans on Sunday 10 March when local tribute band Get Stoned are welcomed back to Fletchers after last year's sensational show.
Just a few months after releasing their first single "Come On" in 1963 The Rolling Stones played one of their first ever gigs outside London and their first ever in Birmingham at King's Heath's old burnt down Ritz Ballroom directly opposite Fletchers Bar. 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.
Get Stoned are a brilliant local tribute band to the world's greatest rock 'n' roll band. Expect to hear most of The Rolling Stones greatest hits including Jumpin' Jack Flash, (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction, Brown Sugar and Miss You.
Come along to sing, dance and have fun. It's only rock'n'roll and you'll like it!".

World Famous Tribute Band Made In Liverpool return for Beatles Fest 2019 on Sunday 10 February

56 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 10 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 acoustic sounds of  Acoustic Sunset, the folk rock of Mr Apollo, the legendary Eggmen, multi instrumentalist Roger Reed and singer songwriters Matilda Pratt  and Peters plays Lennon.

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

Born and bred in Liverpool the band perform at venues world-wide with recent performances being as far afield as Russia, USA, Australia, Switzerland, Europe and the Far East

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.
