The Beatles played more shows there than anywhere else in their whole career. Starting with founding member and drummer Alan Wagner, the initial idea was a simple one: perform the music of The Beatles as it was, by them. The band uses only guitars, drums and true voices. No computers or digital processors, no tapes or loops, no modern sounding amps … just pure original Beatles! Take a look at their website:

Joining The Cavern Beat on the stage this Friday will be the MidKnight Special.

The MidKnight Special, directed by Rachel Shershen, is the top choir at Kaneland Harter Middle School. This is the second year that the MidKnight Special has sung with the Cavern Beat.
