The WannaBeatles to Celebrate Nashville Beatles Day with Jan. 30 Performance

            NASHVILLE, Tenn. (January 2017) – The Grammy-nominated Nashville band The WannaBeatles will attempt to relive history on Jan. 30 (Monday) when they perform in the second floor lounge of Soulshine Pizza in Nashville to celebrate the 48th anniversary of The Beatles' legendary rooftop performance in London. 

            Like their idols, The WannaBeatles will take the stage at exactly 12 noon, performing songs The Beatles played live that day: "Get Back," "Don't Let Me Down," "I've Got A Feeling," "One After 909," and "Dig A Pony," as well as some of their other hits. Former Mayor Karl Dean and the Metro Council named Jan. 30 Nashville Beatles Day in 2009. 

          Admission to The WannaBeatles' "A Cold Day's Night" concert is free. Beatles fans can enjoy the concert inside the club. The Beatles' 42-minute show occurred at noon Jan. 30, 1969 on the fifth-floor roof of Apple Records' London headquarters. The performance has passed into history as the band's last live appearance. Nashville's premier oldies station, Hippie Radio, will co-sponsor the event with on-air personalities serving as hosts. Soulshine Pizza is located at 1907 Division St. near Music Row.

          The WannaBeatles earned a Grammy nomination for "Fab Fan Memories - The Beatles Bond," a CD that includes an interview with Ken Mansfield, U.S. manager of Apple Records, who was on the roof of the Apple building alongside The Beatles. 

          Fans can listen to The WannaBeatles coverage live on Hippie Radio at Members of the news media are welcome to cover the event.  For more information, contact Dennis Scott at (615) 300-4668 or Learn more about the WannaBeatles at
