Hello everyone! It's time for our McCartney Multimedia Newsletter again. Hope everyone had a great start to the New Year. So without further ado, here's what happened:


Las Vegas




NamesCon 2015
Saw the launch of everything .Buzz

Travel.Buzz is the new technologically disruptive force inside the online travel, entertainment and destination booking industry. At NamesCon, the convention for internet registrars and domain name brokers, Howard Lefkowitz, CEO of 1DegreeWorld presented Vegas.Buzz, Vegas.Ninja, LosAngeles.Buzz and more sites - all part of a growing network of Travel.Buzz sites. During his speech about the new "Better than Best Rate Guarantee" engine, he was beautifully "interrupted" by the #DotBuzzShowgirls wearing the ".Buzz" logo on their feather head dresses. What's more, inside the headdresses were hidden GoPros constantly filming the audience's reaction. Then there was confetti!  The presentation turned into an event no attendee will forget anytime soon.  
Nicely done team!

Baker, CA (Martin's Road Log)

Baker, CA

Sometimes you have to follow your instinct and know where to look for the "shot." We were on the road to Las Vegas, when I spotted this little gem on the wall behind the Sizzler that used be there next to the Chevron station in "downtown" Baker.
It's right opposite Arne's Royal Hawaiian Motel where my wife met her last husband! It's being torn down soon, so if you're on the way to Vegas, stop by and take a picture.

So, I'm walking behind the building to stretch my legs, and behold I spotted a "Banksy" in the middle of nowhere. Ruth took the picture.









Arizona
Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show

Went spent 5 days in Scottsdale and met up with old friends and made new ones.
Our trip started with the Arabian Horse Show at West World where the horses were really in the spotlight. You can see a short video clip of the presentations on Martin's Facebook page. Thanks so much to Stuart Sander of Sterling Bloodstock for showing us around, introducing us to owners, trainers and breeders, and for generally opening up our eyes to this beautiful passion. Not sure where we'd keep a horse in 90293 but never say never! We had a wonderful time.
Also, a big thank you goes out to Bob and Julie Pomeroy of Pomeroy Lodging in Canada (eh?) for hosting a private horse presentation and having us over to their homestead for cocktails afterwards. Thanks, guys.

Sanctuary, Paradise Valley, AZ

We met up with our Tea partners at elements @ the Sanctuary for some light breakfast discussing business opportunities for Angie's Mrs. McCartney's Teas brand. Old friends, Kerry and Cynthia Dunne met our new friends and tea suppliers Dean and Lummy Jablon. We had a great time and actually got a lot of business done, considering our beautiful Paradise Valley surroundings. The icing on the cake was a quick visit with Iron Chef Beau Macmillan who is tasting Angie's teas and coming up with ideas for recipes... stay tuned on that one!

Glitz, Glam, Give @ Ritz Carlton, PHX

We saved the best for last. A special Oscar™ night gala took place at the Ritz Carlton in Phoenix benefitting the Arthritis Foundation.
We were invited by event Chair Francis Tesmer and lifestyle guru Rolf Lohse (Rolfs Salon).
The night was filled with Hollywood glamour and sophistication, and the star of the show was Mr. Las Vegas comedian and ventriloquist Terry Fator who keeps the cause of Arthritis very close to his heart.

Guests arrived on the red carpet greeted by paparazzi and were treated like movie stars. The evening included mystery boxes, gourmet dining, live entertainment, 2 fabulous fashion and hair shows from Rolfs Global, and a live auction intertwined with the 87th Annual broadcast of the Academy Awards® on ABC15.

View more photos of the event here.

Upcoming - MHT - Vienna, Austria


The Magical History Tour is coming to Austria!


THE MAGICAL HISTORY TOUR 2015
Jetzt kommt sie endlich auch nach Österreich - die offizielle Beatles Show der McCartney Group! Eine authentische Zeitreise zurück in die 60er Jahre: mit einer interaktiven Live-Show,  einem Beatles Konzert featuring The Cavern Club Beatles aus Liverpool - einer der besten Beatles Bands der Welt - und mit zwei Personen live on stage, die die Roaring Sixties wirklich zusammen mit den Beatles erlebt haben: Paul McCartneys Schwester Ruth und ihre Mutter Angie McCartney!
Diese aufwändig gestaltete Konzert-Show zeigt alle musikalischen Karrierehighlights der Beatles: von den frühen Erfolgen über Beatlemania, Sgt. Pepper bis hin Abbey Road und Let It Be – insgesamt mehr als 30 Beatles Hits in den originalgetreuen Anzügen und Kostümen der jeweiligen Epoche.
Zwischen den musikalischen Sets geben Angie & Ruth McCartney live on stage in drei höchst spannenden und unterhaltsamen Talk Show-Blöcken ihre privaten Erlebnisse mit den Beatles zum Besten. Angie und Ruth erzählen authentische Stories zu den größten Beatles Hits und wie diese Songs entstanden sind  - schließlich haben John Lennon und Paul McCartney einige ihrer größten Welthits direkt vor ihren Augen im Hause McCartney komponiert. Bisher unveröffentlichte Filme und Fotos aus dem McCartney-Privatarchiv vervollständigen diese intime Einblicke in die Geschichte einer der unbestreitbar größten, die Musikgeschichte mitbestimmenden, Bands der Welt.
 
THE CAVERN CLUB BEATLES – LIVE FROM LIVERPOOL
Die Cavern Club Beatles sind die offizielle Residence Band im legendären Cavern Club und eine der weltbesten Beatles Bands. Sie spielen weltweit in ausverkauften Hallen - so zum Beispiel 2014 bei den offiziellen 50 Jahr-Feierlichkeiten zur Ankunft der Beatles in den USA. Die Musiker stammen allesamt aus Liverpool. Sie treten in Original Beatles Kostümen auf und spielen die Beatles Songs so unglaublich originalgetreu, dass man meinen könnte, die Fab Four höchstpersönlich vor sich zu haben! Mit dabei die größten Beatles Hits : I Want To Hold Your Hand, She Loves You, Yesterday, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, Penny Lane, Let It Be, Get Back und viele mehr.
Die Band spielt mit originalgetreuen Instrumenten, wie sie auch die Beatles schon in den 60er Jahren benutzt haben. Durch die Originalkostüme und die Bühnenchoreographie fühlt sich der Zuschauer in ein echtes Beatles Konzert zurückversetzt. Die Magical History Tour - die offizielle Beatles Show der McCartney Group - bietet über zwei Stunden Unterhaltung und ein Hitfeuerwerk der Extraklasse!

From inside the band’s hotel suites to the concert arenas to the private jets, the madness and magic plays out through Davis’ personal accounts of hanging with the Beatles for thirty-four jam-packed days.

Go behind the scenes for all-night Monopoly games with John Lennon, witness the Beatles’ legendary living-room jam with Elvis, and be there the night Bob Dylan introduces the band to pot. Roll up for this definitive account of the legendary band at a critical moment in the history of rock ’n’ roll.
