Original Drummer with Beatles Pete Best

Sunday, July 28 - 2:30 PM



Mr. Best will divulge his perspective through a lecture/slide show on the happenings that exchanged his place with Ringo, from arguably the most successful band in history. The reason for his dismissal is one of Rock ‘n Rolls greatest unanswered questions.

LECTURE: Doors at 1:00PM. Show: 2:30PM-4:00PM.  Meet & Greet offered for a select 75 guests after the lecture.  THE PETE BEST BAND at Valley Dale Ballroom at 7:15 P.M.  

THE CYRKLE, was the only American band with the same manager, Brian Epstein, as  The Beatles.  The Cyrkle, were presented as the opening band as The Beatles toured America in 1966 for fourteen USA concert locations, including San Francisco’s Candlestick Park and the famous New York Shea Stadium concert.    Two of the original Cyrkle  musicians,  Don Dannemann and Michael Losekamp will be perfoming at Valley Dale Ballroom beginning at 6:00PM and relaying their own stories of that past era of music.   Cyrkle  band member Pat McLoughlin  “ … its extremely exciting for our band to open for Pete Best almost 60 years since The Cyrkle opened for the Beatles we are opening for Pete Best. Also I should mention John Lennon named our band and chose its spelling.”

7:15PM, brings Mr. Best and his brother Rogue to the stage with The Pete Best Band playing selections of tunes which were written by Paul Mc Cartney & John Lennon.  Many songs performed by the Beatles throughout the 1960s had already been written and completed years before when Pete Best was a member of The Beatles, dismissed in 1962, two years before The Ed Sullivan Show. Best, will be performing many recognizable Beatle hits.  Love Me Do, Do You Want To Know A Secret, I saw her standing 

Pete Best is looking forward to appearing in Ohio at The Valley Dale Ballroom, as he is playing in two other American States earlier in the week Delaware and Maryland before returning home to England.
