FORT LAUDERDALE THURSDAY, MAY 21, 2009 5 pm to 8 pm

The Museum of Art | Fort Lauderdale, a division of Nova Southeastern University, continues its FREE Third Thursday monthly event series with a special music performance by local Beatles tribute band, Anthology.

Beatlemania officially hits the Museum on Thursday, May 21, 2009, at 5 pm, when Anthology begins rocking the best of the Beatles and The Palms Grille Go-Go Groupies begin grooving.

Anthology consists of four local musicians --
Joe "Holly" Hollingsworth on Drums/Vocals (who also happens to serve as the Museum of Art’s building operations supervisor during the day),
Joe Bonilla on Lead Guitar/Vocals,
George Van Dyk on Bass/Vocals
Tom Montalbano on Guitar/Keys/Vocals.
(No relation to Cinema Dave).

Anthology has performed at a number of South Florida special events, venues and private parties. Most recently, Anthology was asked to participate in Majic 102.7’s 40th anniversary of the Beatles’ roof top concert, which took place on top of a building roof top in downtown Fort Lauderdale. Anthology has also performed at St. Coleman’s Italian Festival, Coconut Creek Casino, Hollywood’s Young Circle as well as private affairs for WSVN-TV and many others.

Also making a groovy appearance during the fun and lively event are The Palms Grille Gold Go-Go Groupies – a group of gorgeous “groupies” following every step of John, Paul, George & Ringo. The groupies, who will be wearing 1960s gold-colored fringe fashion costumes, will scream and shout as the Beatles open up with their first song and even join the band on stage grooving to classic 60s go-go dance club steps on both sides of the stage.

In addition to the evening’s “rocking” entertainment, the Museum offers free admission, extended hours (open until 8 p.m.), 2-for-1 drink specials in the Museum’s Café and Wine Bar and gift giveaways from the Broward-Palm Beach New Times Street Team.

Current Museum exhibitions include With You I Want to Live along with the Museum’s permanent collections The Spectacle of Life: The Art of William Glackens, CoBrA and The Indigo Room or Is Memory Water Soluble?

Pete Best

This reminds me that not long ago by chance I ran across a few online articles about former Beatles drummer Pete Best, with some samples of his drumming with the early Beatles. He was replaced by Ringo Starr for reasons that are not entirely clear. Some have called Best a poor drummer but in the samples I heard he sounds competent.

Another version is that he was considered the handsomest Beatle at the time who got the most screams on stage from the girls, which made some of the other Beatles jealous enough to have him dropped. For many years he did not make much money from his brief Beatles career but in the 1990s Pete finally began to receive some ample financial rewards from his efforts with the Beatles.

Re: Pete Best

In the "Beatles Anthology,'
I think McCartney said that once Ringo joined the band, the group finally became "The Beatles."

Pete Best's story would make for an interesting Biography Channel story.
