Johnson: “Every year, once the production work has been done and the band is playing, there’s this moment I look around at the sea of friends having a great time on the Yellow Cab Parking lot and this feeling of community pride just washes over me. The power of people coming together in a positive way cannot be under expressed.”
Himes: “We keep doing this because we absolutely love it. We enjoy bringing the community together in such a unique and fun way. The timelessness of the Beatles is universal and that permeates into our community. Every year, we try to improve and learn more material. We’re all thoroughly stoked to unveil a few surprises this year. We’re all such good friends and we absolutely adore this music. Nothing beats celebrating great music with a few thousand of your best friends.”
