Although The Quarrymen had few formal engagements between March 1958 and the end of the year, they did perform often at parties and family events.
On 20 December 1958 they played at the wedding reception of George Harrison’s brother Harry and his bride Irene McCann. The event was held in Speke, Liverpool.
