Vanderbilt Dyer Observatory’s own Nathan Griffin and his band, The Mables, will perform a special concert under the stars at Vanderbilt Dyer Observatory on Saturday, September 27, 2014 at 7:00 PM.  A limited number of tickets will be sold by the carload (up to 8 people per vehicle) for $30 each. Gates open at 5:30 PM and guests are invited to sit on the front lawn, view the sunset, and enjoy a picnic supper. The concert will begin at 7:00 PM and the Seyfert Telescope will be available for viewing after the concert.  Please bring food, beverages, tables, chairs, and blankets.  Donations will be accepted on-site for funding scholarship students for attending the Dyer Observers Summer Science Camps.  Reservations may be made here.

Dyer concert car passes are usually $125. The price for this special fundraiser is – $30 per car – in order to give you the opportunity to donate to the Dyer Observers Summer Science Camp. Please consider making a contribution above the car-load ticket price. All donations will go to student scholarships. Bring a car full of friends! Everyone is encouraged to wear a crazy shirt and/or a funky hat!

About The Mables: Roots infused with The Groove, Americana Funk, and Psychedelic Rock.

The Mables have developed a fresh, signature sound perhaps best described as roots infused with The Groove, Americana Funk or Psychedelic Folk. Dancing is encouraged – and – you may find, irresistible.  Check them out on FaceBook, Vimeo, and on YouTube

I am very excited about having The Mables perform at Vanderbilt Dyer Observatory for our 2015 Summer Science Camp fundraiser!  They are without-a-doubt my favorite band. The Mables movement grows daily – come join us and you’ll understand why.
