“The Beatles have had such an incredible impact on musicians here and everywhere. This is a great opportunity for Nashville to say “thank you’ for both the music and the memories. “
The popular Nashville band The WannaBeatles, former Apple Records executive Ken Mansfield, and superstars Wynonna and Phil Keaggy will celebrate the 42nd anniversary of The Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper album on June 9 with an evening of live music and storytelling at the W.O. Smith Nashville Community Music School.
The With a Little Help From My Friends benefit will occur from 7-9 p.m. in the school’s concert hall. The event will feature career reflections and readings from Mansfield; live performances by The WannaBeatles, country star Wynonna, contemporary Christian artist Phil Keaggy, country star David Ball and other celebrity guests. Metro Councilman Parker Toler will read a Metro proclamation naming January 30th as Nashville Beatles Music Day.
Proceeds from the event will be used to help W.O. Smith continue to provide instruments and music instruction to hundreds of children from low-income families.
“W.O. Smith is excited to celebrate the 42nd anniversary of the Sgt. Pepper album by hosting a concert with The WannaBeatles and special guest Ken Mansfield,” said Jonah Rabinowitz, the school’s executive director.
