"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!

Jim Johnson of The Meanees with his second submission of the series!  

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

Wellesley Rocks!

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....)

John Robertson "Coronavirus Blues"

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...

TONIGHT!  Hilary & Dave will play OUTSIDE at the Dolphin Seafood restaurant in Natick from 6-8pm.  Call 508-655-0669 for reservations!  Special guests too!  (Who will it be?)












Jim Johnson of "The Meanees" opts for piano (yes, he usually plays bass - showoff! ;) for this interpretation of his favorite Killers tune:

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

The Walton family's second submission - inside and outside, hangin' with the fam, doin' some serious B-side Elton John.

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

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

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

Mark Stepakoff hosts the open-mic series at TCAN.  Check out his hilarious song "Kitty is a Cougar" on Spotify (many albums on Spotify).

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?"

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

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

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

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

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