The Lebanon Middle School auditorium was the center of attention in Lebanon on Saturday as The Cleverlys took the stage as the first music entertainment of the town’s Bicentennial celebration.
There were many fans and new comers to The Cleverlys that were excited to take part in the town’s first big event this year. Many were so excited they stood outside patiently waiting in the rain for the doors to open. This event did require free general admission tickets as there was limited seating, but the entertainers were able to offer two shows during the day so many more fans would have the chance to see the concert.
The Cleverlys were excited themselves to be in Lebanon to do a concert during this very special time for the town. Lebanon’s David Gilmer emceed the event. The band met fans following the show and took pictures and had some of their merchandise and cds available.
Lebanon Town Mayor Tony Dodi and the council members were all excited for this event and thanked everyone that came out and for all the volunteers that helped the town make this possible. Please, watch the town of Lebanon’s Facebook page and The Lebanon News for more information on events this year.
