[Posted by Adam Forrest on Wednesday, 06/01/11 5:59 pm] [Full Blog] [Tweet] [Facebook]
This Sunday, Rockography will be honoring Sid Bernstein, the man responsible for bringing the Beatles and the Rolling Stones to America. Sid will be in person to meet and greet with fans at the Rockography Sunday Beatles Brunch. Signed posters will also be given away throughout the day.
A legendary American music producer and promoter, Sid Bernstein changed the American music scene in the 1960s and started the British Invasion by bringing The Rolling Stones, Herman's Hermits, The Moody Blues, The Kinks and, most notably, The Beatles, to America. He was the first impresario to organize a rock concert at Carnegie Hall (with the first US performance by the Beatles) as well as the first to organize concerts at sports stadiums including Shea Stadium and Madison Square Garden.
Rockography is located at 504 6th Avenue in New York City. The Sunday Beatles Brunch takes place on Sunday, June 5th, from 12pm to 5pm. For reservations and more info, call (646) 360-4143.
