The Cavern Club Beatles, direct from Liverpool, England, will invade Daytona Beach at 9 p.m. Friday, Feb. 14, in honor of the 50th Anniversary of The Beatles' first visit to the USA and appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show.
"The Cavern Club Beatles are the resident band at the world-famous Cavern Club in Liverpool where The Beatles got their start," said Ken Bots, general manager at the Ocean Deck. "They are performing in New York, Miami and Daytona Beach, so we are truly grateful that they are stopping at The World's Most Famous Beach."
The concert also celebrates the twinning of the Cavern Club with the Ocean Deck Beach Bar -- both venues established in 1957, as well as the year John Lennon and Paul McCartney met for the first time. The band will then head to Miami to perform at the Hardrock Café.
The Cavern Club Beatles were formed in 2011 and are "four lads from Liverpool" who look and sound like John, Paul, George and Ringo. Every Saturday they perform a fully costumed, all era show in the Cavern Live Lounge to an international audience.
They just returned to the Cavern Club after a short break playing the roles in the musical "Let It Be," both in London's West End and on Broadway.
There will be a book signing by Julia Baird, John Lennon's sister at 8 p.m. Friday, Feb. 14.
Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 on the day of the concert. They are available at the Ocean Deck, 127 S. Ocean Ave., Daytona Beach, and by calling (386) 253-5224.
