“The Blue Meanies,” “London Fogg,” and a great lineup of local bands will join BP Molinaro to raise Autism awareness

Over the last few seasons, Borough President Molinaro has dedicated one of his summer events to Autism awareness. This year, Beatles Blast was chosen. “This is a great family event that will showcase our children and young people, making it the perfect opportunity to promote increased awareness about Autism, which is currently affecting 1 in 88 children.” Autism service providers will be in attendance with informational tables set up for parents and caregivers to learn more about services available to them.

Special guest appearances at the concert will be made by British invasion-era star Billy J. Kramer, whose hits included the Lennon-McCartney songs “Bad to Me” and “Do You Want to Know a Secret.,” and Garrett Gardner, fresh off his appearance as a contestant of NBC’s The Voice.

Staten Island’s own The Blue Meanies will perform many Beatles covers, and headline a roster of local bands including London Fogg, and Giffords Lane, which is comprised of pre-teens.

Ken Dashow of Q104.3 FM will serve as Master of Ceremonies. Host of Sunday morning’s “Breakfast with the Beatles,” Ken is much loved by fans for his knowledge of Beatles history and his passion for their music.  In between acts, a fun question and answer session will be held.
