T-Shirt of the Day Award for Three Special Beatles Days!

11 Aug

Looking for an obscure holiday to award a t-shirt to for today, I discovered that no less than THREE special events happened on August 11 related to The Beatles! In 1964, their movie “A Hard Day’s Night” opened in New York City; in 1965 their movie “Help” opened in New York City; and in 1968 The Beatles launched the Apple Records recording label. Herewith, some cool but little-known Beatles shirts!

Remember if you click on any t-shirt, you can choose the style, color, and size you want, for infants to adults!

I’ll see you in a funny t-shirt!

T-shirt of the Day Award for Benny Goodman’s Birthday!

30 May

Big band, swing dance, clarinets, and Benny Goodman. Here’s a few tees that do mean a thing, because they’ve got that swing!

Benjamin David “Benny” Goodman (May 30, 1909 – June 13, 1986), also known as the “King of Swing,” was a clarinetist and bandleader during the era when jazz was coming into the height of its popularity. “It is clear in retrospect that the Swing Era had been waiting to happen, but it was Goodman and his band that touched it off,” said Donald Clarke, author of the The Penguin Encyclopedia of Popular Music. Goodman was the first jazz bandleader to perform in Carnegie Hall, an event described by critic Bruce Eder as “the single most important jazz or popular music concert in history.” In a time of strict segregation, Goodman also led one of the first racially integrated bands.

See you in a funny tee!
