Juber has released 14 critically acclaimed solo albums which feature his celebrated arrangements of popular tunes and genre-crossing compositions.  His latest release  'Wooden Horses', is loaded with groove-driven originals shaded in jazz, blues, rock and folk flavors.

"At the heart of LJ's sound and style breathes a near-flawless technique where a fiercely emotional underbelly, alternate tunings, and keen sense of melody and rhythm coalesce into something uniquely his don't have to be a solo-happy guitar worshipper to appreciate his talents."-  Inland Empire Weekly

One of TV and radio personality, Tony Perkins’, earliest memories was seeing The Beatles on "The Ed Sullivan Show" as a toddler.  He has been a fan ever since.  Tony was the weatherman and feature reporter for ABC'S "Good Morning America" from 1999 to 2005.  During that time he became known to Beatles' fans nationwide for his interviews with Ringo Starr, Olivia Harrison, Yoko Ono, and many others.  As the GMA's best-known pop music aficionado, he presented highly regarded pieces on George Harrison's passing, the twentieth anniversary of John Lennon's passing, the re-emergence of Ringo, "Let it Be.....Naked", and many other topics.  In addition to this, Tony has appeared often at "The Fest for Beatles Fans" as a panelist and interviewer.

During this Eight Day’s A Week, Beatles Tribute Cruise, Tony will show excerpts of his interviews with Ringo Starr, and will further talk about his interactions with Ringo, Paul McCartney, Olivia Harrison, Yoko, various members of Wings, and many others.

Tony’s currently a morning anchor and weather personality for "Fox Morning News" in Washington, D.C.  He has been writing a book about The Beatles for the last 20 years, and will probably never finish it.

Tony Bramwell’s remarkable life began in a postwar Liverpool suburb, where he was childhood friends with three of the Beatles long before they were famous.  And by the time he caught up with George Harrison on the top of a bus going to check out “The Beatles, Direct from Hamburg” – one of whom turned out to be George – Tony was well on his way to staying by them for every step of their meteoric rise.  If anything needed taking care of, Tony Bramwell was the man the Beatles called, the man they knew they could trust.  

From developing the first Beatle music videos to heading Apple Films, and from riding bikes and trading records with George Harrison to working and partying with everyone from the Beatles to Hendrix, Ray Charles, and The Who, Tony’s life really did (and does) encompass a who’s who of rock.
He offers fresh insights into the Beatles’ childhoods and families, their early recordings and songwriting, the politics at Apple, and Yoko’s pursuit of John and her growing influence over the Beatles’ lives.  He knows of the mysterious Shea Stadium concert footage, John Lennon’s late-night “escapes” and more.  >From the Cavern Club to the rooftop concert, from the first number one to the last, and from scraps of song lyrics to the discovery of the famous Mr. Kite circus poster, Tony Bramwell really did see it all.
Conversational, direct, and honest, the ultimate Beatles insider finally shares his own version of the frantic and glorious ascent of four boys from Liverpool lads to rock-and-roll kings.
After the Beatles split he became the U.K.’s first independent record promoter, representing artists such as Bruce Springsteen and coordinating and promoting the music for many films, including Harry Saltzmann’s James Bond movies (among them Paul McCartney’s “Live and let Die”), Chariots of Fire, Dirty Dancing, and Ghost.
