On Monday January 15 2018 the Quarrymen played a gig at the Liverpool Royal Philharmonic Hall in aid of the Merseyside charity - The League of Welldoers. Also on the bill was an old friend, Mike Byrne with his group “The Beatmasters” plus a whole host of other Merseyside artistes. In the absence of our own pianist, John Duff Lowe, Mike sat in on piano with us. Photo shows the Quarrymen with the Beatmasters and compere Tony Ravel.

 Usti nad Labem Sat 16 Dec

In December 2017 the Quarrymen visited the city of Usti nad Labem in the Czech Republic at the invitation of the Boom Beatles Revival Band & Orchestra - a group of Beatles tribute musicians who have appeared In Liverpool’s Beatle Week - to play in their annual Christmas Concert in aid of local cancer charities. It was a great evening - after a Q& A session the Quarrymen played a 60 minute set, followed by the Orchestra which consisted of some 25 musicians and singers. Len Garry was invited to sing “Long and Winding Road” backed by the whole orchestra, who then went on to play a superb selection of Beatles music under the direction of Pavel Nepivoda. For the rest of the evening the enthusiastic crowd was entertained by the Boom Band. The Boom and Orc even produced a 20th Anniversary Birthday Cake for the Quarrymen as we got back together in 1997! The Quarrymen also visited the city museum to try out some of the local folk instruments - see photo below!
