Yes, they played skiffle and early rock 'n' roll. I saw them at their reunion concert at Quarry Bank school!
It was Saturday August 26th and the survivng Quarrymen returned to the school from which they took their name as part of the Liverpool Beatle Convention 2000. As I was getting married in October that year, I convinced my friends and family to go with me to the convention for my stag week- they certainly weren't disappointed!
There was a large crowd of Beatle fans from all over the world as the Quarrymen played their gig in the playing fields in the school grounds. I managed to get up close and took some great pics! I think Hunter Davies must have been still writing his book at the time, as he was also in attendance and posed for pictures with them outside the entrance to one of the buildings.
It really was a fantastic day - the highlight of the week, I only wish they had the school tie for sale!!
