Beatles Story Director Jerry Goldman and General Manager Clare Ireland were on hand last night to meet and greet Beatles fans at last night's Beatles and Beetles Nightlife event at the San Francisco California Academy of Science.
Fans enjoyed a night of live Beatles music played by the Beatles tribute band "The Sun Kings," along with an opportunity to see not only unpublished and unseen photos of the Beatles, but also to see displays of live marine mammals, birds, insects all while listening to hits from the sixties played by a DJ.

Beatles Story brought from Liverpool over 40 fabulous unseen large framed black and white photographs of the Beatles that were taken by photographer Paul Beriff in 1963 and 1964. These photographs had never been seen by the public until Paul Beriff rediscovered them in his attic and decided to finally publish them in 2010. Each framed photograph was at least 4' by 4' and some were as large as 6' by 6'. Last night's event was the first time these stunning photographs were seen in North America.
When asked what photograph was his favorite, Jerry Goldman replied that the photograph of Paul McCartney doing Twist and Shout was his favorite.
If you'd like to see these photographs in San Francisco, many of them will be on display for a month at the San Francisco Art Exchange starting May 7th. Go to www.sfae.com for more information. Goldman says after their debut in San Francisco, they will be going to Memphis, Tennessee, to be displayed at the Rock and Soul museum later this summer.
