4 p.m. @ Gardonyi Géza Theater – Eger/Hungary.

7 August 1957 is commonly believed to be the first date The Quarrymen played at the soon-to-be-legendary venue. At the time being was the breeding ground for them. Colin Hanta, Len Garry and Rod Davis in the late fifties formed the band with John Lennon’s idea of what a noble simplicity as Quarrymen band name after the Quarry Bank High School.

And the Quarrymen eventually evolved into the Beatles. In the begining they began to play skiffle, the ragtag mix of American blues and early rock ‘n’ roll that captivated English youth in the mid-50’s. In 1997 the reunited Quarrymen released a CD, “Get Back … Together” featuring “Blue Moon of Kentucky” … “Whole Lotta Shakin”‘ and other songs from the band’s skiffle origins … And the rest is HISTORY!
