In a relatively sparse summer schedule, The WannaBeatles had weekend pair of dates that ended July and started August.
The weekend coincided with a visit from a lifelong friend of WannaBeatle David's, Danny Jiminez. We had met Danny when we played down in Florida in February. (see blog 20march2015, "Florida and lots of pictures" for a good photo of Danny with a bass he had customized to match one McCartney used, along with several fine photos Danny took.)
Danny is a fine musician with a special interest in Beatles music, and also a fine photographer. And so, this blog includes some of the photos he took at the Bedford County Fair, and the next blog will report on Danny's performance onstage with The WannaBeatles.
Friday July 31 was a warm day. We were dressed accordingly for the trip down to Shelbyville.

Wanna Beatle Bryan and his wife Holly bought a Prius at the beginning of July. The Bedford County Fair became the occasion for installing its first WannaBeatles bumper sticker.
