John Winston Lennon would have been 70 years old on October 9th, 2010.
The date that the Academy of Industry 1 year anniversary pool party is on, falls on the same day as John Lennons bithday. Together with Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr they conquered the music world as The Beatles. After the breakup of the group, Lennon himself went on to write songs which continued to influence the new generation of pop groups which rose up to fill the vaccum The Beatles left behind…and Lennon himself left behind after he was shot on the 8th of December, 1980.
The Academy 1st anniversary pool party will be a classic pool party, playing billboard and UK chart top 10 hits from right through the decade that was the 1960’s. However, as a special nod to the date of the party, October 9th, a special pre party will take place in the Bar Lounge of Brunel Hall…the party will again be based in the 60’s, but will extend into the solo carrers of Harrison, McCartney and Lennon going into the post Beatles era.
This will be a Lennon and Beatles special party…to celebrate the man…John Lennon.
