Mary P & The Friendly Friends

44 Morrison Ave, Somerville (see map on right)
Band Contact: Mary Patterson
Saturday, May 12 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Folk, guitar, voice. Succulent, sweet, surprises. Bubbles, hula hoops, chalk.
Also, a jazzy set with a twist of lemon.
Also, sometimes an 80's sing-a-long song on ukulele thrown in, because we're grown ups and we can do what we want.

Want to hear something? If you request it and I know it? I'll play it.
*Also, though not specifically geared towards kids, people of all ages tend to listen joyfully. I think you'll like it.
*Many Friendly Friends are out of town. It might just be Mary P. I still think you'll have fun.

All Kids Down

229 Powder House Boulevard, Somerville (see map on right)
Band Contact: Jesse Kurn
Saturday, May 12 12:00 PM - 2:00 PM

All Kids Down consists of Jesse Kurn on tenor uke/vox and Sean Griffith on piano. The two played in a prior band, The Corey Road Band (2008-2010). All Kids Down formed in 2015 and consist of songs written to reflect their work in human services and mental health. Jesse is a mental health counselor and Sean is a lawyer who represents children in DCF. Their lyricism reflects their day jobs while their music is catchy, poppy, and with solid melodies that run juxtapose to the lyrics. Sean and Jesse meet at night to practice after Jesse puts his 2 children to bed, which gave us the name "All Kids Down".

90-Mile Portage

37 Cedar Street, Somerville (see map on right)
Band Contact: Jamie Kallestad
Saturday, May 13 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Jamie Kallestad and Ben Cosgrove started performing as 90-Mile Portage in order to catch a break from their day jobs: Jamie is a nationally touring singer/songwriter (www.jamiekallestad.com) and Ben is a pianist and composer of music inspired by the North American landscape (www.bencosgrove.com). The music of 90-Mile Portage melds the two members' musical styles. Set to Cosgrove's lush and unconventional arrangements, Kallestad's songs take flight, lake-clear melodies borne up on strange and beautiful instrumental layers. 90-Mile Portage released an self-titled EP in 2013 and are slowly and quietly assembling a full-length release.

Jamie Kallestad and Ben Cosgrove started performing as 90-Mile Portage in order to catch a break from their day jobs: Jamie is a nationally touring singer/songwriter (www.jamiekallestad.com) and Ben is an independent pianist/composer (www.bencosgrove.com). The side project was born in 2011 with a handful of recording experiments conducted via email. 90MP came-of-age after the duo installed themselves as regular act at a bar called Toad in Cambridge, MA.

90-Mile Portage released an self-titled EP in 2013 and are slowly and quietly working hard on a full-length release.
