In Rock 'n Roll history, there are some groups whose manager, staff and friends, are just as famous as the act themselves. The Beatles were no exception, in fact they had the most famous inner circle of people than any other act in all of show business. Brian Epstein, Mal Evans, Neil Aspinall, Derek Taylor and list goes on an on. But of all these famous names, one name stands out as their oldest and most trusted friend. That name is Tony Bramwell. Tony knew and played with them as children, he became their Road Manager, Promotional Man, Headed Apple Films, and became CEO of their Record Company, Apple Records, Ltd. After 5 decades behind the spotlight he still remains close friends with Sir Paul McCartney, and Richard "Ringo" Starkey. Today Tony Bramwell stands as the one Authoritive on The Beatles. Lets face it, Tony Bramwell hung out with John, Paul, George and Ringo; worked with them; partied with them; and experienced everything with The Beatles first-handed.
To date, Tony has done countless interviews, appears is almost every Beatles radio special, as well as for Television and DVD presentations. But none of these compare to hearing Tony Bramwell Live. Seeing and hearing Tony speak is truly fascinating, he gives the right amount of biographical details to his audience so they have a good sense of what was going on without becoming a Wikipediac! Then he mixes in some of the most entertaining anecdotes and stories that other speakers simply would not know about! That’s the real magic of Tony Bramwell Live! With him being that close to the World’s most popular and loved band, he’s not about to run out of new material any time soon.
Over the years, Tony has been attending and sharing his Life with The Beatles and Beatle Events worldwide. I think many of the fans will agree that attending a Beatles function, be it a Fest, Convention or any other thing you can call it, without Tony Bramwell being on the bill, the whole thing comes up a bit short. As an answer to popular demand Tony Bramwell penned his first best selling book entitled “Magical Mystery Tours (My Live With The Beatles).” The book has become a best seller amongst Beatles fans and one of the more popular books according to Amazon’s Kindle downloads.
Lately Tony has been booked for some Large conventions and also corporate luncheons. Musical and non-musical businessmen love Beatles music and have great respect for their business empire. These engagements have proven to be both entertaining and innovative.

The highlight in 2010 was the booking of Tony Bramwell who was George Harrison's best friend as a child and who knew Paul McCartney well too. Tony went on to become the Beatles road manager who was with them throughout the wild years and then went on to be joint head of their Apple Records and head of Apple Films when he made some of the earliest pop videos. He became head of Polydor Records when he had Slade, The Jam and Roxy Music in his stable. He discovered artists like James Taylor and Eva Cassidy.
Tony had been with Paul McCartney in Nashville a couple of weeks before he came to the BeatlesFest in Moville and received texts from him whilst he was here.
In 2011 Tony was back again along with the Cavernites who regularly play The Cavern in Liverpool and Candlestick Park and the Modests form Glasgow and Paul McCartney lookalike and soundalike Neil Tudor from Liverpool. The BeatlesFest will also be multi-venue and will take place both indoors and outdoors.

2012 is a very special year for Liverpool as the city celebrates 50 years of The Beatles with a spectacular, year-long programme of events. On 18 August 1962 Ringo Starr made his first appearance as the Beatles official drummer at Hulme Hall in the village of Port Sunlight, Wirral. The four members of the band had a two hour rehearsal before taking to the stage as the headline act in the local Horticultural Society’s 17th annual dance. On that night the Fab Four were born...the rest is history. The Beatles - John, Paul, George and Ringo – then took the charts by storm in 1962 with their first official release, Love Me Do, quickly followed by Please Please Me and From Me to You. Beatlemania soon swept across the globe as the Fab Four recorded a staggering 12 studio albums, 13 EPs and 22 singles from 1962 to 1970. It is estimated they have sold over one billion records worldwide.
Today, The Beatles continue to influence many musicians and artists as well as attracting a new generation of fans. In recognition, Liverpool has created an exciting and diverse programme of events including performances from the renowned Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, exclusive anniversary concerts at the Cavern Club and a very special ’50 Years of The Beatles’ Mathew Street Festival.
