Tino DeLollis of "Grounds for Divorce" and "Connect 4" plays a song by Herman's Hermits, also played by the Carpenters.

"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).  Hopefully we'll be able to revive this series soon - wear your facemasks!

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

Wellesley is more than just lacrosse sticks and golf clubs - we also have drum sticks and guitars, and we're not afraid to use 'em!  See updated calendar, videos of recent events, archival photos...

CALLING ALL WELLESLEY MUSICIANS - 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 hayden98@me.com - we'll post the videos below ALL MONTH LONG as they roll in, so make some noise!

SEVENTEEN (17!) "Quaran-tunes" so far: 






Haig Tellalian of "Grounds for Divorce" gets his "country" on!  (His horse is out of the frame, but its there....)

Brad Neighbors of "Umami" crushes the 4-box!  17 separate audio/video tracks were assembled for this video including drums, backing vocals... have mercy!

Anna Tellalian (WHS Senior > BU!) is a member of the acapella group "Ladies First", and crushes this series' 2nd Carpenters song!

Bob Bua (aka "Ripcord!") turns a Green Day song into a Quarantine anthem.  "Wake me up when Covid-19 ends...."

Rick Wilson does some Elton John! He's in Wellesley-based band "Ghosts in the Machine" with Ludvig Soderling and Patrick Kent:

Patrick Hayden of "Bigfoot" and "Connect 4" co-runs (w/ Dr. Shira Doron) the Library music series and this site.  Dude, learn the lyrics....

Mike Kim, Brad Neighbors, and Liz Larson of  "Umami" combine for this video of an original tune by Mike re: Boston Marathon.

Jadon Czerniach of "Screaming Sushi" gets all 4-box for some Mission Impossible mojo!  Cellos rule.

The Walton family does Bob Marley, led by Dave Walton of "Million Dollar Day" fame.  Don't MESS with their firewood:

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?"

Nick Fauza (WHS Junior) - his band "American Ink" has published a few albums (Spotify).  Cuz, who hasn't by that age?
