Imagine This…

Written by Hans Tanner

 

You are invited to spend a full week in Las Vegas with comped rooms at the Mirage Hotel and Casino, where you are placed at VIP status, which includes a free ticket to the 5th Anniversary Beatles LOVE show, seated in the artist section, at the same show where every single person that had a major part in the career of the Beatles as well as the making of the LOVE show (which includes Paul McCartney, Yoko Ono, Sean Lennon, and George Martin) attended as well. If there were every a sentence that was deserving of run-on status I believe it’d be this one.  The only catch to all this? You have to: conduct public tours of an awesome studio bus for 5 hours every day, give interviews to local news stations, record a sweet track and video with a couple of cats from the local Boys and Girls club, setup and record interviews of Yoko Ono with Gayle King, The L.A. Times, and Mont Blanc, and you have to giveaway Epiphone guitars signed by Yoko to a few lucky winners, which can be seen below!  Does this even qualify as a catch??  Not even debatable.  In case you’ve not deduced by now, this is exactly what the bus experienced this past week in Vegas.  Seriously, we need to give a HUGE thanks to The Mirage Hotel and Casino, The Beatles LOVE Show, Mont Blanc, and Epiphone for allowing this organization to carry on with its mission, affecting peoples lives all over the country.  You are whats makes this all happen so thank you again!
