Nick Fauza (WHS Junior) - his band "American Ink" has published a few albums (Spotify). Cuz, who hasn't by that age?
"Wellesley Rocks the Library" is a monthly live music series for adults and students! FINALLY, a local venue for us to boogie. Two events completed (videos below). The March and April events were cancelled but we will resume in May! (we hope?)
Bob Bua turns a Green Day song into a Quarantine anthem.
CALLING ALL WELLESLEY MUSICIANS - Bored? Let's use this quarantine time to create and share some... "quaran-tunes"! Play your piano, sing a karaoke track, pluck a uke.... Send your video to firstname.lastname@example.org - we'll post the videos below ALL MONTH LONG as they roll in, so make some noise!
TWELVE (12!) "Quaran-tunes" so far:

Mike Kim & Liz Larsen of R&B band "Umami" sometimes wear shades inside and do sick multi-track overdub videos (respect!):

Rick Wilson is in Wellesley-based band "Ghosts in the Machine" with Ludvig Soderling and Patrick Kent. From his home studio:
Tino DeLollis of "Grounds for Divorce" and "Connect 4" plays a song by Herman's Hermits, also played by the Carpenters.
Haig Tellalian of "Grounds for Divorce" gets his "country" on! (His horse is out of the frame, but its there....)
Rod Wright of "Bigfoot" adapts a blues song about the Quarantine with the words we've all been asking ourselves: "How long do I have to wait?"
Jadon Czerniach gets all multi-cam for some Mission Impossible
Patrick Hayden of "Bigfoot" and "Connect 4" co-runs (w/ Dr. Shira Doron) the Library music series and this site. He also oughta google the lyrics to this song....
Anna Tellalian (WHS Senior) is a member of the acapella group "Ladies First", and crushes this series' 2nd Carpenters song!
Mark Stepakoff hosts the open-mic series at TCAN. Check out his hilarious song "Kitty is a Cougar" on Spotify (many albums on Spotify).
The Walton family does Bob Marley, led by Dave Walton of "Million Dollar Day" fame. Don't MESS with their firewood:
