In the cool of the evening sun, Sherborn residents brought chairs, blankets, pasta salad, last night’s meatballs and drinks to enjoy the first summer concert on the library green. The official first concert was originally slated for earlier in the month but was delayed because of tornado warnings.
Dozens of families gathered to enjoy music by a Beatle's cover band, "The Nowhere Men" who played such hits, as ‘You’re Gonna Lose that Girl’, ‘Ticket to Ride’ and ‘Paperback Writer’ from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. Dover resident McGeger McGehee, is a lead bass player for the band.
“We try to keep things local,” said Nancy Holland, music coordinator for the Friends of Sherborn Library. The next concert on the green is July 20.
“We love ‘em and the kids love ‘em," said Sherborn resident Paul Casale, who has attended the summer concerts with his family for the past five years.
Mike Zhang, also a Sherborn resident, brought his twin daughters to pick out at book at the library and then listen to the band. “It’s a summer favorite,” he said.
Kimball Holland, musical director of the band, Group Therapy, said they will be playing on this summer concert series in the next month. He said the band plays mostly jazz and rock n’ roll.
