Beatles Fans Come Together in Westchester

Abbey Road meets Rye Brook, New York.

Or, to paraphrase another Fab Four hit single: All you need is a ticket.


The 2015 New York Metro edition of Beatles Fest! wraps up today at the Hilton Westchester with all sorts of intriguing events. Among the speakers are game show host Bob Eubanks, who helped bring the group to the Hollywood Bowl and Dodger Stadium in the mid-1960s, and musician Gary Wright, who along with “Dreamweaver” collaborated with both George Harrison and Ringo Starr.

Other Sunday attractions include:

– Photo exhibits by Starr’s personal photographer Rob Shanahan and the drummer’s one-time girlfriend Nancy Lee Andrews, who has a new book titled Ringo Starr Photographs.

– A talk by Dave Schwensen, author of The Beatles in Cleveland.

– Performances of Beatles songs by students from Montclair, New Jersey’s School of Rock and string quartet Cellophane Flowers featuring NYC violinist Claudia Chopek.

The Beatles Fest! will hit Chicago this summer, August 14-16.
