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 shows are every month, September through June, on Saturday mornings, broadcast live on the radio with a live audience. 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.
Saturday Morning Tunes is BACK!
After one of the longest years of our collective lifetimes, we are THRILLED to announce the return of in-person Saturday Morning Tunes concerts! Our first show back is the rescheduled Beatles Family Festival with the Fabtastic Four June 12 at Maryland Hall in Annapolis.
The Fabtastic Four (featuring members of the power pop band Starbelly) will perform outdoors, with the stage set up on the front steps Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts, 801 Chase St. in Annapolis. This show is a partnership between WTMD and Maryland Hall.
All tickets from the original date (March 2020) will be honored at this show.
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.
We’ll be following CDC and Maryland guidelines for outdoor gatherings to keep the attendance capped at a few hundred people (the outdoor space could hold many more than that).
Here are Maryland Hall’s guidelines for this show:
– Tickets are limited
– Face masks are required at all times except for when eating or drinking, regardless of vaccination status
– Please sit with members of your household only and keep a 6-foot distance from any other parties
– Respect social distancing whenever possible
– No coolers
– Service Animals only
– It is recommended that guests bring chairs or blankets for seating
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.
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.
The Saturday Morning Tunes Beatles Family Festival is made possible in part by Race Pace Bicycles, Garrison Forest School and Tropicool Italian Ice.
Dedicated to Art for All, Maryland Hall in Annapolis is the region’s cultural hub, convening and engaging all people in arts experiences that strengthen community.
