After a five day trip at the end of August, The WannaBeatles' first gig in September was one of our favorites, the downtown Library. We've been doing this outdoor lunchtime show for years, and we always enjoy it.
The Nashville Library has a concert series each year, August through October, in their upstairs courtyard. It's a beautiful setting, with trees and tables with umbrellas circling a large fountain.
The concerts attract people who work downtown, but also families with kids.

As with previous years, we had photographer Ray Jones taking pictures, and they tell a great story.

We had a great time. It's always fun at the Library. Thanks to Elaine for inviting us, Matt and Travis for a great job with the sound, thanks to fans Jeff and Joanne, Carol and Gary, and Leslie, and thanks to Ray Jones for lots of fine photos.
We'll be back, and looking forward to it!
