On Monday, the 6th of May, an historic event will be taking place. John Lennon’s original band, the Quarrymen will be performing at St. James’ Theatre, London. Three members of the original Quarrymen will be joined by our own drummer, David Stark, and bass player, Marko Laver for a one off gig.
From the St. James’ website:
The Quarrymen perform the Skiffle and early Rock music, which influenced the birth of the Beatles, including songs like“Rock Island Line”, “Mean Woman Blues”, “Whole Lotta Shakin’”, “Blue Suede Shoes”, “Lost John”, and many more. As well as their music, the Quarrymen share their Liverpool sense of humour in the stories and anecdotes with which they pepper their performance, giving Beatles fans a unique insight into the origins of their favourite group and the city in which they grew up.
The current Quarrymen lineup includes three of those five original musicians, – Len Garry, former tea-chest bass player, now playing guitar and replacing Lennon as lead singer, – Rod Davis, from Quarry Bank School, on guitar and Colin Hanton on drums, who played with John, Paul, George and John Duff Lowe on the famous Percy Phillips recording session which produced “In Spite of All the Danger” and “That’ll Be the Day”.
