    After 20 years of FESTS, Bob ‘retired’ two years ago. Leaving the door open for a future return, Bob has decided the time was NOW. Here, in Bob’s own words are his thoughts about this:

    A personal message from Bob: Get Back to where you once belonged!

    After a two year sabbatical, it’s time for me to “get back to where I once belonged” and that place is the Fest for Beatles Fans. I am very grateful to Mark and Carol Lapidos for leaving the door open for me to return.  I am so happy to announce that my shows will be a part of the 45th Anniversary of Fest for Beatles Fans in 2019.

    I will be premiering a new Beatles character that can only be described as a “real mixer” plus a special surprise new act that will be performed throughout the fest.


    I have seen many photos and comments on Facebook about how many miss me and my shows. This made me realize I made a positive impact on so many and that I am truly loved.   I can’t wait to return and visit with each and every one of my Beatles family in New Jersey and Chicago, I too love you all.

    Peace in the neighborhood,

    Bob Abdou/Mr.Puppet

    Bob will also be hosting the Annual Beatles Parade on the Saturday afternoon. Welcome back, Mr. Puppet!
