A special, stellar concert fundraiser for the 2015 Dyer Observatory Summer Camps

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, Sept. 27, at 7 p.m.

The Mables have a fresh, signature sound they describe as “roots infused with groove, Americana-funk or psychedelic folk.” Dancing is encouraged at Mables shows—and may be irresistible.

“The Mables are without a doubt my favorite band,” said Rocky Alvey, director of the Dyer Observatory. “The Mables movement grows daily—come join us, and you’ll understand why.”

A limited number of tickets will be sold by the carload (up to 8 people per vehicle) for the deeply discounted price of $30 each. “Please consider making a contribution above the carload ticket price. All donations will go to student scholarships,” said Alvey. “And bring a car full of friends.”

Gates open at 5:30 p.m. Guests are invited to come early, set up their blankets or chairs on the front lawn and bring their own picnic supper. The concert will begin at sunset and the Seyfert Telescope will be available for viewing after the concert.

Donations will be accepted on-site for funding scholarship students attending the Dyer Observers Summer Science Camps.
