James Burton 'Guitar Man' Weekend - special guests The Quarrymen Saturday 4th July 2015, 7:30pm Tickets; Unreserved Seating £17.50 (includes a £1.50 booking fee) Standing £13.50 (includes a £1.50 booking fee) Fort Perch Rock Marine Promenade New Brighton Wirral CH45 2JU James Burton on stage with John Lennon’s Quarrymen. The Quarrymen play the music which influenced the birth of the Beatles, the Skiffle and Rock ‘n’ Roll of the mid fifties – “Rock Island Line”, “Mean Woman Blues”, “Midnight Special”, “Twenty Flight Rock”, “Blue Suede Shoes”, and many more, played in the style of the hundreds of similar groups who were laying the foundations of British Rock Music. Of course the difference with the Quarrymen was that it was fronted by one very special man, John Lennon, who gathered together his best mates way back then to embark on the most famous journey in music history. 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. Plus a Ricky Nelson set with Don Woods backed by a collection of top musician’s from Merseyside ‘Don’t Walk’. Includes a small 4th of July firework display to end the evening.
