It Was 60 Years Ago Today: A Beatles Conversation with Cousin Brucie and Jamie Bernstein

February 5 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm EST

The Loft at City Winery on February 5.

A celebration of the 60th anniversary of the Beatles’ first visit to America and their historic appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show on February 9, 1964. The harmonies of the duo Blac Rabbit (“Maybe the Best Beatles Cover Band Ever,” New York Times) will transport us back to the heady days of Beatlemania.

Bruce Morrow, the much-honoured and legendary radio personality – who hosts Cousin Brucie’s Saturday Night Rock ‘n’ Roll Party on WABC – helped launch Beatlemania in America, interviewing “the boys” in their suite at the Plaze Hotel and introducing them to 65,000 screaming fans at Shea Stadium in 1965. Jamie speaks for an entire generation when she says: “Cousin Brucie was in my ears every day of my life back in those years.”

Jamie Bernstein, the Maestro’s daughter, who grew up playing Beatles songs on the piano with her father, was at both an Ed Sullivan Show rehearsal and at Shea Stadium. She will engage Morrow in a lively give-and-take about music, radio, the Fab Four, and the power of popular culture to bring people together while revealing underlying truths.

Don’t miss this unique occasion. The Loft at City Winery, NYC, is an intimate venue, so early booking is recommended. Tickets will go on sale at noon on Friday December 22.

For those attending the show who want an extra-special experience, we are offering a meet-and-greet with Jamie and Cousin Brucie before the event.

  • General admission: $25
  • Stage Premier: $45
  • Meet and Greet with Brucie and Jamie: $50 + admission
