The Beatles with The Cyclones

On Saturday 22 June 1962, the Beatles performed at the Cavern together with The Cyclones.

Mark Peters and the Cyclones were a Liverpool band which included in their ranks lead guitarist Kenny Johnson. He is the brother-in-law of Raymond Jones (the person probably responsible for Brian Epstein signing up the Beatles) who told him that The Beatles had recorded a record in Hamburg called My Bonnie with Tony Sheridan.

Mark Peters knew the Beatles quite well, as they had played together on other occassions, for example at the Cassanova Club on Valentine's Day (14 February 1961)
