OMG, It’s 2017 and We Move Forward!
by Joe Carroccio
I feel very positive that 2017 will be a productive and fulfilling year for 16 in ’64: The Beatles and the Baby Boomers. I’ve developed a marketing plan for 2017 and reviewed it with Marti. As the title indicates, we move forward!
The date for our first book signing of 2017 has been rescheduled from Saturday, January 14th to Saturday, January 28th. It will be at Zia Record’s Tempe, Arizona store, located at 3201 South Mill Ave. from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. The Tempe store is located very near to ASU, and we hope that students will come out and meet with us.
Between March and April, we will be doing book signings at Zia Record’s two other Phoenix Metro area stores, as well as at their two Tucson locations. We may also be doing other events with their support.
I have started the process of identifying venues for presentations, including live Beatles music. More to be announced in February with regard to projected events.
In the meantime, please note three items of interest:
- June 25 is Global Beatles Day, and we intend to do something BIG.
- During the weekend of August 11th, Marti will be speaking at The Fest for Beatles Fans in Chicago.
- The M.I.M. (Musical Instrument Museum) will be celebrating John Lennon’s birthday in September, and we will be there.
As always, we continue to add to and make revisions to our website, 16in64.com. Please check out the website for new book reviews and other interesting information.
As I have previously stated, and continue to live by, you need to embrace your passion and always move forward with a positive attitude. Don’t dwell on the past – learn from it. Most of all, enjoy what you are doing, or find something else to do.
Finally, for now, my vision for 16 in ’64, from its conception, has been to make this wonderful true story into a movie. Thing is, WE NEED A PRODUCER!
Thanks and blessings to all who have and continue to support us, going forward.
