Gerry Marsden formed the group in 1959 with his brother Fred , Les Chadwick , and Arthur McMahon. They rivalled the Beatles early in their career, playing in the same areas of Hamburg , Germany and Liverpool . [1] McMahon (known as Arthur Mack) was replaced on piano by Les Maguire around 1961. [1] They are known to have rehearsed at Cammell Laird shipping yard at Birkenhead . The group's original name was Gerry Marsden and the Mars Bars , [3] but they were forced to change this when the Mars Company , producers of the chocolate Mars Bar , complained. [4]

Since 1963 when Gerry toured with The Beatles and Roy Orbison, until 2014 when he toured with . Proby, The Searchers, Tremeloes and Fortunes, during this period of over 50 years, Gerry has undertaken major tours every year except for those years when he was in the West End in “Charlie Girl”. His tours apart from those in the UK, have been mainly in the . Canada, Australia and New Zealand His UK tours since the mid 80s have been mainly Solid Silver 60s, 60s Golden Greats and Sixties Gold. I would not like to work out the tens of thousands of miles that Gerry has travelled in order to perform and bring his fans so much pleasure. So Gerry, thank you for all those wonderful memories and have a great farewell tour.
