Dan Bullock has worked in banking and financial management for over 30 years. He is also a community activist and founder of The Mosey Project. He is the former president of  Leadership Austin, Ronald McDonald House, Seton Cove, Texas Lyceum, Umlauf Sculpture Garden, Wild Basin Wilderness, and Zachary Scott Theater among many other community leadership roles. So what would he have to do with The Beatles?

Following their Ed Sullivan Show debut, the Beatles first live U.S. performance was in the Washington Coliseum in February, 1964. They had immediately signed with Capitol Records, who organized possibly the first ever national closed-circuit theater presentation to showcase the Beatles and emerging Capitol stars Lesley Gore and The Beach Boys. Saturday, March 14, 1964.( see below)

The major theaters in the largest cities were booked, and top bands in those areas were brought in to warm up the local crowds before the main event. Dan’s band, The Imperials, were a big deal at CU-Boulder at the time, and were tapped for the Denver audience. They emerged on a rising orchestra stage in their classic Paramount Theatre, to a screaming group of kids and their puzzled, protective parents who were among the first to experience Beatlemania.
