The Cavern Club’s resident Merseybeat group have been stompin’ for thirteen years now. In that time they have established themselves as Liverpool’s premier exponents of the original Mersey Sound today.
As well as their twice-weekly Cavern ‘beat sessions’ they have played Beatles festivals all over Europe plus the biggest Beatles festival in the USA, ‘Abbey Road On The River’ in Kentucky, as well as other shows, from the Middle East to all the major 60s festivals around the UK. They’ve backed many 60s legends such as US stars James Burton, Tommy Roe and Chris Montez and they continue to back many 60s/Merseybeat stars regularly, including The Searchers’ Mike Pender, Ray Ennis of The Swinging Blue Jeans, The Merseybeats' Billy Kinsley, ‘bubbly’ Beryl Marsden and during the huge 'Lennon Remembered' show at Liverpool's Echo Arena, the late Hamburg legend Tony Sheridan.
Their CD EP’s, ‘CAVERN STOMPIN’ & ‘MACH SCHAU!’ have now sold out and attained the top twenty on a number of radio stations in the USA. With a full-length12” vinyl LP, ’A WHOLE LOTTA SHAKERS!’ available on Germany's Soundflat Records and a CD release on Majestic Sound Records in Japan, there’s definitely a whole lotta Shakers going on!
The Shakers are proud to be officially endorsed by the iconic Hofner guitar company and you can experience their fab ’gear’ in action at shows throughout the UK and abroad.
But now, you too can experience real Liverpool beat direct from Number 10, Mathew Street! So, let’s go down the Cavern and twist ‘n’ shout with The Shakers –“The best Merseybeat group out of Liverpool since the 60s!” – THE BEAT magazine.
