    1. hello!
      Sorry for the late response. Fly By Brass Band is playing at 1pm. I’d love to host your band too. 2pm works for us. Please confirm so I can add it to the schedule. Would you need an hour or longer?

  3. Hi. My band, Jam Sandwich, (www.jamsandwichrockband.com) is a family friendly classic rock cover band (Elvis, Beatles, Rolling Stones, Eagles, Tom Petty, etc) that is looking for a porch to play on. We typically play for 2+ hours so could take the 1-3 PM slots if that works for you. Thanks. Rich, Jam Sandwich Band. 978-764-4661

    1. Hi Rich,
      I am waiting to get a confirmation from another band for 2pm spot. How is 3pm to 4.30pm for your band? Or 12pm-1pm?

  4. Iveria would love to sing at your porch if there is a slot available

    Iveria, a male a capella enemble, has been singing music from the Republic of Georgia in Arlington since 1984. We performed at the last Porchfest. We sing love songs, soldier songs, laments, healing songs, hymns, and liturgical pieces from Georgia, whose polyphonic choral tradition goes back centuries, and whose music sometimes sounds Middle Eastern, sometimes Eastern European, and sometimes like nothing else in the entire world.

  5. Hi-

    Your profile says you have open slots for bands. I would love to play at 1 or 2 pm.

    My band profile includes two MP3’s

    Many thanks!

  7. Hi! My band Lampyridae would love to play at your porch! We are a Boston-based trio performing all original compositions influenced by various Celtic styles. Our unique sound is a blend of up-beat fiddle tunes, beautiful sounding harmonies, intricate arrangements, and odd rhythms. Instruments featured are the fiddle, cello, piano, mandolin, guitar, recorder, and occasional vocals (and bass guitar coming soon!) We often play acoustic, but also have our own sound system and can use that if needed.
