Beatles Fest and Neil Innes
NEW YORK METRO LOCATION
NJ Crowne Plaza Meadowlands Hotel, Secaucus, NJ
March 27-29, 2009
It's 'Fest For Beatles Fans' time again this weekend.
This is a yearly event in NY/NJ area (and other cities at different times of the year) where fans congregate in celebration of their common bond as Beatles fans!
Each year a selection of guests- all Beatles connected in some way - come together with shows and discussions of all things Beatles !
There are also music jams among the fans, singing and playing Beatles songs,until the early hours of morning...and much more... :)
~Check out the official site above to read more about this!~
I first heard of this event when I joined a music forum several years ago.
From my observations, Beatles fans are the most loyal of any other fans!
Some people I know have attended this event 10 years or more and would not dream of missing it. Vacations are built around a stay of several nights and days at the hotel that sponsors this event-and reservations are made months in advance!
Now THAT is dedication! :)
Neil Innes, a frequent Fest guest, will be returning this year to add his fun music and routines!
Neil is a Fest Favorite, I have heard from some music forum friends!
(From the site)
Another one of our favorite guests, NEIL INNES pays
a return visit to mark the 3rd premiere of The 7th Python,
a documentary on Neil’s amazing career, first as a member
of the Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band, to being an integral part of
the Monty Python Group,
The Rutles, and a long solo career.
Neil wrote all the Rutles songs and co-starred as Ron Nasty.
Of course, Neil will join Liverpool for some Rutling!
We will be showing the film in the Grand Ballroom starting
at around 11:00am on Saturday (an earlybird special).
Neil has written a new song which he will be performing
at THE FEST and it is called Imitation Song.
You can hear a preview of it at his site
( A sample of the humor of Neil Innes from years past )
Enjoy the Fest, my Beatles friends!
