Looking for something to do with the kids this month before they go back to school? How about some free music?

The Maine Academy of Modern Music (MAMM) is having The Kids Are Alright (TKAA) family friendly, local music concerts every Friday in August, 10:30 – 11:30 am at the Deering Oaks Park Bandstand. The events are FREE and open to the public!

According to the MAMM Facebook Page: 

The series is presented by MAMM in partnership with Friends of Deering Oaks Park and the Portland Public Library with sponsorship from Aura nightclub, Crooked Cove, Maine Life Real Estate Co., Maine Red Claws and Residential Mortgage Services.

Here’s the Concert Lineup:

TKAA aims to present a wide variety of genres and styles of local music with accessible programming to the community. For the past year, the series has been running for free at the Portland Public Library with big turnouts and has hosted some of Portland’s favorite local acts, like Samuel James and Maine Marimba Ensemble. The Friends of Deering Oaks provided the opportunity to move the series outside for the summer.

In addition to live performances by some of the area’s top talent, each event will feature an opportunity for the audience to ask questions and learn what it’s like to be a musician in Maine.

Each featured act will be followed by Maine Academy of Modern Music student ensembles.

“We’ve seen that The Kids Are Alright really serves a need for quality, diverse music programming for families and young children in the area by the response to these concerts,” says Emilia Dahlin, host and coordinator of the series (and mother of a toddler).
