As has become tradition, BMI provided the entertainment at the annual summer meeting of the Council of State Restaurant Associations held recently (7/15) in Columbus, OH.

Rock ‘N Roll Hall of Famer Terry Sylvester of the 70’s super group the Hollies performed for a large and enthusiastic group of executives from the state restaurant associations as well as the National Restaurant Association. Sylvester’s biggest claim to fame is that he replaced Graham Nash in the Hollies and was with the group when they went on to record the smash hits “He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Brother,” “Long Cool Woman in a Black Dress” and “The Air that I Breathe.” The CSRA’s mission is to foster goodwill and promote the success of State Restaurant Associations and their members.
