        Anyone going this August? I will be there and God-willing, so will Leslie and maybe oobu24 will drop by! 

          My ticket arrived today (as did my friend Jennifer’s) Will be flying off to Chicago in 10 days! See you there Leslie! (and oobu on the 10th!) 😄

            Yes!!  Looking forward to it too!!  Should be a lot of fun! 😄

              Leslie and I met up with oobu on Sat. for brunch. Too short of a visit!

              We’ve been going every night until real late and had a blast! I was a semi-finalist in the Beatles Trivia and  the Name That Tune. Got some cool prizes - Ringo 30th Anniversary concert t-shirt, a white LOVE Cirque du Soleil ballcap, a Beatles VI (U.S. album) small train car, and Cirque du Soleil plastic cup w/straw. 

              We fly home tomorrow afternoon. 

                It was very nice to meet you both! I'm glad that we were able to get together.

                  Steve Holley & Laurence Juber

                    Denny Laine

                      Jeremy Clyde (of Chad & Jeremy)

                        Alan White (drummer for Yes & John Lennon on Live Peace In Toronto and Imagine albums)

                          There was this fabulous artist at the Fest named Eric Cash. I saw this painting he had done and recognized it as one that I saw in 2016 inside Woolton Hall in Liverpool. He told me that was the original and he got it signed by all the surviving Quarry Men. He is almost as good as Shannon MacDonald (who did all the paintings in the Hard Day’s Night Hotel and the BeatleWeek t-shirts)
