Blues bands and Beat groups began to appear at the club on a regular basis in the early 1960s. The first Beat night was held on May 25, 1960 and featured a performance by Rory Storm and the Hurricanes (which included Ringo Starr as drummer). The club closed its doors in March of 1973, and was demolished during construction work on the Merseyrail underground rail loop.

The 'New' Cavern

A new Cavern Club (called the The Cavern Club), was opened in April of 1984 by two friends; a school teacher called Bill Heckle and a Liverpool cabbie, Dave Jones. It was built with some of the same bricks that had been used in the original club and was designed to resemble the original as closely as possible. Despite being a world famous tourist spot, the club continues to function primarily as a live music venue. On December 14, 1999, former Beatle Paul McCartney returned to the Cavern Club stage to play a set publicising his new album Run Devil Run. 1984 (MCMLXXXIV) was a leap year starting on Sunday of the Gregorian calendar. ...

The Cavern Club continues to shine as one of the UK's favourite venues. It has around 40 live bands performing every week; both tribute and original bands, although the majority are trying to follow their peers into a career in music writing and performing their own material. Bands come from the four corners of the British Isles and further afield to play at the Cavern and it's quite normal to find bands from New York, London, Madrid and Sydney all on within the same week. A normal night on the Beatle stage is free to enter, but the big stage offers 5 or 6 original bands performing for just a few pounds entry. The Cavern makes every effort to ensure the people who come to perform as well as those who come to see them, leave having had a great night and an experience worth talking about.


Some band comments, "Hi there I just wanted to say that last night was wicked and we all fully enjoyed it.. The Cavern is really a great place and all the other bands were great.. And thank you for letting us play.. It was brill..Thanks."
