Where Every Family Matters

WannaBeatles to Kick Off Brentwood Summer Concert Series

Come out to Brentwood's Crockett Park on Sunday, June 2 to celebrate the 35th anniversary of this family-friendly concert series.

Are you ready for some music clichés? Last year, the WannaBeatles – one of the top Beatles tribute bands in the country – had to “Let it Be,” when heavy rains canceled their performance at the Brentwood Summer Concert Series. At 6 p.m. on Sunday, June 2, the band hopes to “Come Together” with a little help from their friends and sing “Here Comes the Sun” to kick off the 35th Annual Brentwood Summer Concert Series.

Are these Beatles’ songs now stuck in your head? Stop by Crockett Park from 6 – 8 p.m. on the first Sunday in June to enjoy more 1960s hits from the WannaBeatles. In 2020, Country Music News International referred to the Grammy-nominated band as “obviously the World’s favorite Beatles-Bootleg act,” and the performers are eager to provide Brentwood families with a nostalgia-filled evening of fun and dancing.

While listening to the music, attendees can also stop by the food truck village for a bite to eat. Vendors at the June 2 concert include:

  • Bradley’s Creamery
  • Blue Monkey Shaved Ice
  • Little Cancun On The Go
  • Smokin’ Buttz
  • Hoss’ Loaded Burgers

New for this year, the City will be giving away a limited number of free custom vinyl stickers commemorating the 35th year of the concert series. Giveaways will be at the City of Brentwood table near the amphitheater, starting at 5:30 p.m.

More Shows in the Brentwood Summer Concert Series

If you miss that first show, the series will continue on June 19 when The A1A Jimmy Buffett Tribute Band, a … you guessed it … Jimmy Buffett tribute band, perform from 6 – 8 p.m. On Saturday, June 22, the City will host the Fourth Annual BrentFest, featuring a beer garden and a fun zone for children. This event will include performances by Cruizin Keys Dueling Pianos, two pianists playing an eclectic mix of music genres, and the Spazmatics, an 80s cover band.

The Brentwood Summer Concert Series will culminate with Brentwood’s popular Red, White, and Boom celebration, from 7 – 10 p.m. on Thursday, July 4. The Downtown Band, which was named to the “Top 10 Best Party Bands in the United States” list by the Industry Expert Awards, will headline this concert, with the fireworks show set to begin at 9 p.m.

All events will take place in Crockett Park’s Eddy Arnold Amphitheater, located at 1500 Volunteer Parkway. For more information, including a list of food trucks scheduled for each event, visit brentwoodtn.gov/departments/summer-concert-series.
