“Before They Were Fab: The Beatles Prior to Beatlemania”

Thursday, September 14, 2017, 6:00 – 7:30 p.m.

Before the number one records and the deafening screams, before Ed Sullivan and “She loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah”, before the shaggy “mop top” haircuts and collarless suits, there were six future Beatles. This 90- minute multimedia presentation will trace the early history of The Beatles from John Lennon’s founding of The Quarrymen in 1957, through their five seminal Hamburg residencies, and right up to the precipice of worldwide fame and fortune.
