Billy J. Kramer was the frontman for Billy J. Kramer and the Dakotas in the 1960s, and was managed by Brian Epstein. In the mid-60s, he scored hits with several John Lennon/Paul McCartney tunes, including "I'll be On My Way," "Bad to Me," and "I Call Your Name." Kramer's most recent album, I Won the Fight, was released in 2013. It features both covers and original compositions.
Billy will be with us all weekend, telling stories, performing in concert with his band (including Liberty DeVitto on drums) on Saturday afternoon, performing with Liverpool on Saturday and Sunday evenings, and discussing his new autobiography, Do You Want To Know A Secret.
Billy has become a great friend to the FEST and it is always an honor to have him join us.
