Welcome to The Liverpool Beat website, chronicling the history of UK Rock music from the golden era of Merseyside music of the 50s and 60s to the present day. Some say the roots of Rock 'n ' Roll lie purely in the deep south of the USA. That maybe true, but Liverpool in the 50s/60s was the centre of the new wave of music which formed the basis of "garage" and even heavy metal. Liverpool Beat takes you on a journey from those heady days of The Beatles into the 21st century with news, reviews and exclusive articles from the real world of rock music.
The Help For Heroes concert at the Floral Pavilion was a virtual sell-out with over 600 people paying £12 a ticket to support our injured troops. The Dominoes and The Cryin Shames both brought the house down with their respective sets and Martin Lucas's "One Night in Las Vegas" cabaret completed a 4 hour spectacular at this great venue on the edge of the Mersey in New Brighton.
