The Beatles Fest Is Almost Here!
by Joe Carroccio
The Fest for Beatles Fans will take place August 11-13 in Chicago at the Hyatt Regency O’Hare, and my coauthor, Marti Edwards, will be speaking at this fabulous function. She will be taking a well-deserved break from babysitting William, but I know will thinking about him the whole time she’s away.
Let me tell you a little about The Fest for Beatles Fans. Fans from more than 30 states, Canada, and beyond will attend this 41st annual Midwest Beatles celebration. Special guests include the 4 Wingmen, Neil Innes (musician/comedian/actor), Leon Wildes (immigration attorney who represented John Lennon), Louise Harrison (George’s sister), Mark Rivera (Ringo’s Music Director) and Mark Hudson (Ringo’s former producer) – and many others.
Marti will be sharing an exhibit booth with professional Beatles scholar, Aaron Krerowicz, a great friend of 16 in ’64. Check out his website: AaronKrerowicz.com.
This Fest for Beatles Fans should be great publicity for 16 in ’64. Both Marti and I feel she should make some good contacts and even may sell some books.
With regard to me, my assisted living facility is working out very well, and I remain very positive, keeping myself strong.
By the way, we decided to turn over trying to work with the M.I.M. (Musical Instrument Museum) to our PR person and friend, Nicole Michael, of 910 Public Relations, LLC. Check out her website: 910pr.com/p/about-910pr.html
Of course, the search for a movie producer, continues. Still my priority!
“Distractions and interruptions will not stop me from achieving my goals or from implementing our program.” Great advice to everyone!
Love and blessings to all…
