Founded by John Lennon at the Quarry Bank School in Liverpool in the middle of 1957, the band was first known as the Black Jacks for the span of a week or so. The cast of members varied over the next three years, with Paul McCartney joining in July 1957, and George Harrison joining in Februrary 1958. After trying a few different names, the name The Beatles was set for a show in Hamburg, West Germany on August of 1960.

The bandname was taken up again in 1990 by Len Garry, John "Duff" Lowe and Rod Davis, early members of the band. In 1994, they released the album titled "Open For Engagements." A second album "Get Back - Together" was released in September 1997 by Davis, Garry, Pete Shotton, Eric Griffiths and Colin Hanton. "Songs We Remember" was released in 2003 in Japan, then January 2005 in the UK. The current band still tours.
