Almost every Beatles fan has probably imagined the privilege and exclusivity of seeing the band in its early days, performing at humble and intimate venues in England and Germany.

 

One of the most iconic places The Beatles played was Liverpool’s Cavern Club, an underground venue with brick arches and a colorful backdrop on the stage.

They performed upwards of 300 times at the Cavern, including their earliest incarnation as The Quarrymen.

The original venue has since been demolished, and safe to say, one of the unlikeliest places you might expect to find a replica of the club is in Hartland, WI.

And yet, there it is.

And it’s pretty cool.

OnMilwaukee’s Bobby Tanzilo went there and joined me in studio for this edition of “Suburban” Spelunking.
