About Gerry and the Pacemakers
Gerry and the Pacemakers got their start in 1959, when Gerry
Marsden formed the group with his brother Fred, and Les Chadwick and Arthur McMahon. The group's debut song "How Do You Do
It?" was released in 1963 and reached the number one spot on the UK Singles Chart. It remained on the charts for three consecutive
weeks, and Gerry and the Pacemakers were on track to enjoy a stellar career in music. Their next two singles, "You'll Never
Walk Alone" and "I Like It" were also number one hits in the UK. In fact, "You'll Never Walk Alone" eventually became the
song of the Liverpool Football Club, in addition to other sports teams as well.
Gerry and the Pacemakers' later singles
included "It's Gonna Be All Right," "I'm the One," "Ferry Cross the Mersey," and "Don't Let the Sun Catch You Crying." "Don't
Let the Sun Catch You Crying" became Gerry and the Pacemakers' biggest hit in the United States, and it peaked at number 4
on the charts. In 1965, Gerry and the Pacemakers went on to star in their own film called "Ferry Cross the Mersey," much like
the Beatles' "A Hard Day's Night."
During the rest of the 60s, the Beatles soon took over the music scene, not leaving
room for many other similarly styled bands. As a result, Gerry and the Pacemakers experienced dwindling sales and popularity,
and thus disbanded. However, they are now back on the road again, much to the delight of fans all over the world. If you didn't
have a chance to catch them the first time around, now you can see this incredible band live in concert. You definitely don't
want to miss out when Gerry and the Pacemakers come to a venue in your city.
Gerry and the Pacemakers' Breakthrough
Gerry and the Pacemakers were able to cash in during the beat movement. Just like the Beatles, Gerry and the
Pacemakers toured the Liverpool/Hamburg area, as did many other bands during the time. The band finally got their big break
when they exploded onto the scene with their hits, "You'll Never Walk Alone" and "How Do You Do It." Throughout the next several
years, Gerry Marsden would lead his band by writing their later hits, including "Ferry Cross the Mersey," "Don't Let the Sun
Catch You Crying," "I'm the One," and "It's All Right." Due to declining popularity in the wake of Beatlemania, the band disbanded
in the mid 1960s, but then Gerry Marsden rounded everyone up again and they reformed in 1974. Since then, Gerry and the Pacemakers
continue to tour all over the world, bringing their classic hits to fans worldwide.
