Important news from


Due to 3 band member changes in The Merseybeats, there are important things to inform you about:

Firstly and sadly we announce that Billy Kinsley has not performed in The Merseybeats since March 2020,

Bob Packham and Lou Rosenthal have retired from the music industry and their last performance with The Merseybeats was September 2021.

Billy, Bob and Lou will be sorely missed, their contribution over many many years has to be praised at the highest level,

their professional musicianship in The Merseybeats will forever be thanked remembered and valued.

But life goes on and we will be welcoming new guest musicians to perform with The Merseybeats.

The legend that is Tony Crane MBE founder of The Merseybeats will continue to front his band as he has since 1961.
