Featuring Music by Mersey Beat a Lecture by FabFree4All Radio & a Memorabilia Show
(Great Neck, NY) On Saturday, June 16th, 2012 from 7:00 PM-11:00PM please join Beatles Fans of all ages from across Long Island at the Great Neck Arts Center, located at 113 Middle Neck Road, Great Neck, NY 516.829.2570 (main entrance is on Maple Drive) for a special event celebrating Paul McCartney’s 70th Birthday featuring The Beatles Tribute Band MerseyBeat, a lecture and presentation from Mitchell Axelrod of the FabFree4All Radio Show and a The Beatles centric record & memorabilia collectors show. Admission to this event costs $15 for general seating at 8:00pm, the record collectors show will open at 7pm. There will also be refreshments available for purchase.
Listen to a set by The MerseyBeat and you’ll feel like you have returned to Liverpool in the 1960’s. The sound of those vintage guitars and amps, and the legendary Beatle vocal harmonies are all there. This New York based band faithfully recreates the very best of the Beatles in the British invasion era.
The Fab4Free4All crew – Mitch Axelrod, Rob Leonard and Tony Traguardo – focuses on topics that span the Beatles’ group and solo careers. Think of any song or album, any aspect of the Beatles as a group, solo artists, musicians, songwriters, or any part of their history … and it’s probably already been covered by the guys, or is bound to be featured in a show some time down the road.
In honor of the momentous occasion of the 70th anniversary of Sir Paul’s birth, radio hosts, the Fab 4 Free 4 All will present you with the clues of Paul’s alleged demise which started with a rumor back in 1969. Rumor….or Reality! No one knows for sure, but they’ll sure have fun trying to convince you that an imposter named William Campbell is the person we will all REALLY be celebrating!
