Hanover Tavern

"Sweet memories of Richmond combined with a lively concert of doo-wop and Christmas songs."


In the 1960s and 70s, the Lug Nuts were all the rage. Four teenage grease monkeys formed an a cappella group and doo-wopped their way into the hearts of Mechanicsville. After a slight misunderstanding involving the popular Mary Sue Alsop, the guys went their separate ways. Now, in 1991, the leaders of the Pamunkey Matron Society have decided to celebrate the 200th Anniversary of Hanover Tavern by inviting the Lug Nuts to join voices once again for a holiday reunion concert. And Dorothy Turnblatt, the new music teacher at Hanover County Public Schools, has agreed to whip the “boys” back into shape. Great guys, great music, and a hub cap full of holiday fun!
