On Friday, January 12th, 2024, Bob Kealing presented his lecture “The Beatles in 1964 Florida” at the Art Deco Museum. 

Lecture Description

This lively presentation examines the two weeks the Beatles spent in the potboiler that was 1964 Florida; longer than anywhere else in North America that watershed year. South Florida is center stage; it’s the subject of Kealing’s new book, “Good Day Sunshine State, How the Beatles Rocked Florida.” It also addresses the tragedy of losing the Deauville Hotel; one of the most important Beatle landmarks in North America.
