Welcome to Saturday Morning Tunes, an award-winning, family friendly concert series!
When we were growing up, kids’ music — let alone kids’ concerts — was pretty lame. Our mission: To present concerts you can enjoy with your kids — not just for your kids. The series launched in Baltimore in January 2017, and we’ve had members of They Might Be Giants, Barry Louis Polisar (who wrote the theme song to “Juno”), Latin Grammy winner 1,2,3, Andres, world music star Falu, Baltimore kids rock stars Milkshake and Baby Beats, and many more. Now you don’t have to pay a sitter to see great live music, and you can take the whole family.
Saturday Morning Tunes Livestream Concerts
If you’re stuck at home with the kids and looking to entertain them with something other than “Frozen 2” for the 12th time, we’ve got you covered.
Saturday Morning Tunes Livestream Concerts bring stars of the kids music scene to your smartphone, laptop and TV Saturdays at 9 a.m. on the WTMD Facebook Page. They’re free, and sure to get your little ones dancing.
Sponsored in part by Garrison Forest School, Race Pace Bicycles, The Music Space, Tropicool Italian Ice, The Peabody Preparatory of the Johns Hopkins University, Creative City Public Charter School in Northwest Baltimore City and (cool) progeny.
Here is the lineup of shows:
9 a.m. Saturday June 13: Jimi HaHa (of Jimmie’s Chicken Shack)
In his youth, Jimi HaHa (Jimi Davies) was a bed wetter and thumb sucker. He’s been peeling the labels off crayons and creating art since he was three. He spent the last twenty years of his life dodging employment by touring the world with his multi-aluminum selling rock band Jimmie’s Chicken Shack.
He also plays in Jarflys. He is a not so disappointing son, adequate husband and anxious father. He ekes out a living selling paintings, playing music and publishing the quarterly art publication Up.St.ART Annapolis.
Annapolis, we’re back!!
****UPDATE: Out an abundance of caution, Maryland Hall and WTMD have decided to postpone the Beatles Family Festival scheduled for Saturday, March 21. We are working together with the band for a rescheduled date that will allow our children, parents and grandparents to better enjoy this event together. Patrons who have tickets for the show will be contacted directly by WTMD.**
March 21 – Beatles Family Festival with the Fabtastic Four
We’re thrilled to partner with Maryland Hall to bring Saturday Morning Tunes back to Annapolis!
The Beatles are the ultimate kids rock band — the one that kids, parents and grandparents can all enjoy together. And we’re excited to welcome the Maryland based Beatles tribute band the Fabtastic Four to Saturday Morning Tunes at Maryland Hall.
Featuring members of the power pop band Starbelly and other great area musicians, the Fabtastic Four play faithful renditions of Beatles classics, without the wigs or costumes. Because does it really matter what the band looks like? We’re all here for the music! And no band has more family friendly music than the Beatles.
Doors open at 9:30 a.m. and the show starts at 10 a.m., so everyone can be home in time for lunch and (family) naptime.
This show is held at Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts, 801 Chase St. in Annapolis, and is a partnership between WTMD and Maryland Hall.
The family fun continues at Maryland Hall from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday March 22 for ArtFest, a day of creativity showcasing the arts at Maryland Hall like no other single day. Enjoy hands-on activities, mini performances, children’s crafts, treats and more … all for free!
