The 34th Annual John Lennon Birthday Party at Enoch’s Pub is recognized as the longest-running Lennon birthday party in the United States and continues the celebration again this year.
Live music for the night will be provided by recording artist, Kenny Bill Stinson - an honoree into the Louisiana Music Hall of Fame Kenny was featured in the PBS film, "River of Song" and is a blend of rock 'n' roll and blues. Beatles songs are his specialty. Also performing will be local musician Dennis Goodwin.
