Brunchin’ Fest
The Beatle Brunch gang came prepared to “Pepper” the crowd with more than a thousand dollars in Beatles prizes at the most recent “Fest for Beatles Fans” annual celebration just outside New York, at the Crown Plaza Meadowlands.

Beatle Brunch Host Joe Johnson, with Tom Frangione, hosted three “Name That Beatle Tune” contests and three “Beatles Trivia” shows, doling out the new Billy Joel (with Paul McCartney) “Live at Shea Stadium DVD/CDs, tons of books, Brunch tote bags, posters, CDs and the brand new “Concert For George” blue-ray DVDs, and that was just a drop in the Pepperland bucket.

Mr.Winner I Presume?

No, actually it’s 'Reverend Flash' who won The Beatles Trivia Contest at The Fest. GOOGLE his name if you don’t believe it! His first Beatle Fest was in 1982 and he is a dedicated Beatle Bruncher.

He says, “I want everyone to know that I had a really fun time participating in the contest and, of course, winning those cool prizes, as well.

Father McKenzie’s got nothin’ on you Reverend Flash.

Cruisers Speak

We’re planning another BTC 2012 and please don’t miss it.

Here’s a few comments:

I thoroughly enjoyed the Beatles Tribute Cruise. When I closed my eyes, the group “Yesterday” sounded just like the Beatles. Laurence Juber was mesmerizing and I got quite an education, not just the technical methods of playing, but playing from the heart. Tony Perkins shared some fun GMA video moments with Ringo, Tony Bramwell told some of the greatest personal stories of his friendship with the Beatles and Shannon McDonald ... what an artist! This is the second Beatles Tribute Cruise that I’ve been on and they keep getting better. Sandi

Janis and I are celebrating 35 years together this year, we take a large trip every 5 years on our anniversary, along with lots of small ones in between. Although I have never regretted any of our vacation expenses, only a few have I felt that I have received more than my moneys worth. This trip, by far, exceeded all my expectations. We can't wait for the next BTC, don't know how you will beat 2011. The smiles in the photos with all of you tell the story of just how truly excited and happy Janis was getting her Beatle fix. Bill & Janis

We had such a wonderful time getting to know you and all the "regulars" and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. You guys out did yourselves in planning all the Beatle activities and were very generous with the prizes too! It was so much fun we would have paid for it (but we were glad it was free!!). All the guests were fantastic too - mind-blowing, as a matter of fact, how accessible they all were and graciously letting us take their picture and signing autographs. BBC Cruise winner LeeAnn.
