Cavern Recommends












Local band Boa who won the Cavern battle of the bands competition in late June and as a result attended the Memphis Rock 'n' Roll 50th birthday celebrations on 5th July return to the Cavern on Sunday evening 22nd August for the first time since getting back from the USA.

Jason Harborow Director of Tourism for the Liverpool Culture Company also travelled out to Memphis for 5th July as the Liverpool Civic representative.

Jason was so impressed with Boa's performances in Memphis he immediately booked them for the "Waterfront Weekend Festival" at the Pier Head 3-5 September. Jason was not only impressed with their sound but also with the way Boa conducted themselves in Memphis, they were perfect Ambassadors for the City.

Will Schillinger from Pilot Recording Studios in New York engineered at Sun Studios in Memphis during Boa's recording session in Sun, which was part of their prize as battle of the band winners.

Will contacted the Cavern and said about the band...."Boa is a great band... let's get them a BIG deal. And put them on at the Cavern when able. They really are special and need to play-out often to reach the next level".

Paul Du Noyer: Music journalist and author was one of five judges who picked Boa as the winners at the Cavern battle of the bands, described their sound as "very refreshing and original".

Boa's gig starts at 8.00pm on Sunday night and is part of their build up to their big day on Sunday 29th August when they open the show at 12.30pm on the main stage at the Pier Head with their only appearance at the Mathew Street Festival. Later that afternoon at 6pm three bands from Memphis will perform for two hours and close the show.
