Poster for an early John Lennon gig with his band The Quarrymen (who evolved into The Beatles)

By Jack Brummet, Music Ed.

The Quarrymen were a Liverpool skiffle/rock band, formed by John Lennon in Liverpool in 1956.  By 1960, they had evolved into The Beatles. This poster is from one of their early gigs, playing at a garden show/dog display/costume parade.  Macca would join the band a few months after this show, and George Harrison joined in early 1958.  Ringo joined The Beatles in 1962, after they sacked their drummer Pete Best.
