The original Quarrymen reunited in 1997 to celebrate the anniversary of when Paul McCartney first met John Lennon. They loved the experience so much and the fans demanded more and more shows and so for the past 25 years, occasionally, the original members have come together to perform live music again.
The Quarrymen eventually evolved into The Beatles but it is, of course, the Skiffle and early Rock music that the Quarrymen perform. They 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. The current Quarrymen lineup includes two of the original quarrymen musicians, – Rod Davis, who played banjo with the early group, but now on guitar (he was replaced by Paul McCartney) and original drummer Colin Hanton on drums. Chas Newby, the Beatles' first left-handed bass player, who performed with them in Liverpool in December 1960, completes the line-up.
