Hey Beatle People,
The 42nd Annual NY METRO FEST is only 5 days away! If you tune in to Q104.3's Breakfast With The Beatles this morning with our MC Ken Dashow (NYC), you will hear Billy J. Kramer on his show talking about his appearance at the FEST next weekend. Billy J. will be world Premiering his memoir, Do You Want To Know A Secret, AND performs a Saturday Afternoon concert with his band. He will also be doing some songs with Mike Pender, founding member of The Searchers. We have so much live music happening on two separate stages that it may be a challenge to figure out where you want to be and when.

We've got the schedule for you right here, so you can begin to plot out your Beatles adventure - from the main ballroom to the Apple Jam stage to the A/V room to the Ashram to the Faboratory and beyond.... Good luck trying to do everything!

Don't have your to tickets yet? Buy them now---or tickets will also be available at the door.

Love what you see? Forward this to a friend who you'd love to see in Beatleland!

Due to scheduling Peter Asher and C had & Jeremy will be arriving Saturday and will be there all weekend long. Andy Babuik and Ron Aprea send regrets that they are sorry to miss the show. They hope to see you next time! And, yes, our feerless Master of Ceremonies Ken Dashow will be there all weekend, even if he has to limp around. For those who may not have know, Ken was hit by a car about a week ago. He was very lucky he only has some knee and leg injuries. We all wish him a speedy recovery.

If you scroll to the bottom of this email, you will find  2 Special Release Offers Only Available Through The FEST. One is A Signed Klaus Voormann Single and the other is Paul's new Biography, Bookplate signed by author Philip Norman.

Can't wait to see you,
Your Fest Family

KLAUS VOORMANN SIGNED LIMITED EDITION SINGLE TO BENEFIT THE INTEREUROPEAN HUMAN AID ASSOCIATION!

Legendary bass player Klaus Voormann, known for his work with Manfred Mann (Mighty Quinn), John Lennon (Instant Karma, Live Peace in Toronto, Imagine), George Harrison (All Things Must Pass, Living in the Material World), Ringo Starr (Ringo), Concert For Bangla Desh) and many others., and also known for his LP designs (Revolver, Anthology  & Ringo LPs). Klaus has agreed to have a demo recording of his song Lu La Le Lu (recorded at George's Friar Park estate in 1970/71) released on a limited edition 7" single, of which the net proceeds will go to charity (The Intereuropean Human Aid Association IHA). The b-side will feature the 1972 released version by a band called Wishful Thinking. The single comes in a gatefold picture cover with a self portrait drawn by Klaus around the time of the recording and the first 250 copies will be signed by Klaus. The single, imported from Germany, will be made available around the end of May and can now be pre-ordered exclusively in the U.S. through the FEST. All of the copies we will be offering will be signed by Klaus. The number of copies we are receiving is quite limited and we think they will sell out very quickly. Klaus has been a Special Guest at numerous FESTS over the years including a very early one in NYC in 1979.

Klaus and his wife Christina have personally chosen the IHA  because of their efforts to relieve the horrible circumstances in the camps where the Syrian refugees fleeing from the war in their homeland are trying to survive. The FEST is going to donate 10% of the gross sales of the single to the IHA.

ITEM #1572 - KLAUS VOORMANN SIGNED LIMITED EDITION SINGLE - $98.00 (U.S. Shipping Included)  RESERVE YOUR COPY TODAY. (for International Orders, Shipping will be slightly more)

Here is a message directly from Klaus:
FROM KLAUS VOORMANN TO YOU
People associate my name with The Beatles, Revolver, good old Hamburg Days. However, there is also another story: the story of little seven-year old Klaus, who - together with his mother, 3 older brothers and baby brother Rolf - was forced to flee from the Russians amidst a long stream of refugees. Mother pushed the pram, Max pulled the handcart with our few belongings. We slept in barns, took shelter in road ditches when the Russian bombers were flying over our heads, rode in a horse carriage among soldiers who were in the retreat, and during this time my little brother died of bacterial dysentery. Thousands of refugees are still on the way via the Balkan Routes. In the frontline Dominik Kodlin, a very good and dear friend of our family. He is co-founder of the Munich NGO InterEuropean Human Aid Association/www.iha.help. He belongs to the volunteers who provide immediate assistance and help on Europe's borders, refugees camps and hotspots. Day and night in tireless dedication to be there where help is not (fully) implemented yet e.g. when boat people are reaching Greece islands, soaked and undercooled or thousands of people desperately wait in front of closed boarders and barbed wire fence meters high. When he told us about all these people passing him by - elderly, invalids, injured, children, often carried by extremely exhausted humans over hundreds of kilometres-, it brings back the images of my own escape back then when I was a little child and my heart starts bleeding.
