Matthew Ball, “The Boogie Woogie Kid,” will perform boogie, blues and swing piano music at a Veeranda Concert at the Hayes Presidential Library & Museums on Aug. 5.

A string band, a boogie piano player and vocalists performing songs from the ‘50s, ‘60s and ‘70s are among the performers featured this summer during the Verandah Concert series at the Hayes Presidential Library & Museums.

The popular concerts take place twice a month on Wednesdays on the verandah of the historic home of President Rutherford and First Lady Lucy Hayes.

Bring a lawn chair or blanket for seating on the expansive lawn. Admission is free. Each event begins with an ice cream social at 6:30 p.m. Donations are accepted for the ice cream. Music starts at 7 p.m.

On Verandah Concert Wednesdays, the Hayes Presidential Library & Museums will have extended hours and offer a schedule of special events, such as hands-on artifact activities, gallery talks and themed tours of the Hayes Home. The museum will be open from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. on concert days.

Verandah Concerts are sponsored by Fremont Federal Credit Union, with additional funding by ProMedica Memorial Hospital.

If there is inclement weather, concerts could be canceled. For updates, visit or call 800-998-7737. Updates also will be posted on the Hayes Presidential Library & Museums’ social media pages.
