Mary P & the Friendly Friends

Music Genre: 
Porchfest Sub Genre: 
Band Description: 

Folk, guitar, voice. Succulent, sweet, surprises. Bubbles, hula hoops, chalk.
Petite person, booming vocals that can stop fixies in their tracks.
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.

Mary P & the Friendly Friends

Music Genre: 
Porchfest Sub Genre: 
Band Description: 

Mary P & the Friendly Friends: Each year different friends join Mary on her "forever home" porch on Morrison Ave. This year friends from across the country contributed to a few collaborative videos that we hope will convey some of the spirit, spontaneity, and joyfulness of Porchfest. The set contains mainly sing-along favorites that are all kid-friendly. (It’s generally the stuff you might sing in the woods around a campfire.)

This event is BYO: hula hoops, chalk, bubbles, and lemonade. We’ll definitely be bringing bubbles. 
Listen anytime by following the FB link. See you in the future!

leisure

Music Genre: 
Porchfest Sub Genre: 
Band Description: 

Playing under the moniker "leisure," Ben Parinello has been described as a "one man band" with only an acoustic guitar and his voice. With a repertoire of nearly 40 original songs and 100 covers Ben strives to never play the same set twice. The dynamic range of his voice and the unpredictability of his sets always make for something special for the audience when he performs.

All Kids Down

Music Genre: 
Band Description: 

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

Music Genre: 
Band Description: 

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.
