Secaucus, NJ, March 31, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- It has been 40 years since the Brady Bunch filmed its last episode and 20 years since The Brady Bunch movie. How did Then and Now Events decide to celebrate these milestones you ask? By having a Brady Bunch Convention! Yes, August 16 and 17 at the Hilton Meadowlands in New Jersey, TANE are doing everything Brady! From the same two women, Jodi Blau Ritzen and Phyllis Paganucci who brought The Davy Jones/ Monkees Convention in 2013 and The Monkees Official Convention in 2014, The Brady Bunch seemed like the next best show to celebrate.
With fans from all over the world, Then and Now Events will have cast members from the original series, guests from the show, cast members from specials and The Brady Bunch movie!
There will also be a huge Brady show starring Barry Williams where he will perform all of the hits from the series including, Sunshine Day, Keep on Moving and he will even turn into his alter ego Johnny Bravo. "Barry Williams attended the Davy Jones Memorial/ Monkees convention March of 2013 and performed Sunshine Day for the sold out crowd teaching the audience the dance moves," says Jodi Blau Ritzen, "It was so much fun for everyone and so successful that we wanted Barry to do the entire show for fans this time around."
Cast members will sign autographs, take pictures with fans, do Q and A's and engage in a huge panel discussion with Lloyd and Hope Schwartz who's famous father Sherwood Schwartz fought to get the series picked up when it originally was not a ratings winner on tv.
Cast members announced so far are Barry Williams, Christopher Knight, Mike Lookinland, Susan Olsen, Robbie Rist, Geri Reischel, Debbi Storm, Karen Leigh Baldwin (Robert Reeds daughter), Hope Schwartz, Lloyd Schwartz, Jennifer Runyon, Caryn Richmond, Jerry Houser, from the movie, Paul Setera, Olivia Hack, Henriette Mantle, Jennifer Cox with more names coming each day.
