A Scene For Teens - First Friday

Portland highlights art and music EVERY first Friday, and the hot spot for teens is the MAMM JAMM Concert Series at Bayside Bowl (58 Alder Street). Bands announced prior to each gig on <http://www.maineacademyofmodernmusic.org . All ages welcome June 1st, 6:00 – 9:00pm; $5.00 admission.
It’s a scene, fit for a teen.  Cool kids in bands jammin’ on stage to friends rockin’ out on the dance floor. A creatively charged atmosphere both parents and teens dig.  “There are so many talented kids playing music, giving them the opportunity to play live on a regular basis fuels their passion and motivates them to continue to want to play,” explains Jeff Shaw, executive director and founder of MAMM.
The MAMM JAMM Concert Series is sponsored in part by MaineToday Media, WBLM, WCYY, WPXT-TV and Rusty Rocket Foundation, and will be rockin’ and rollin’ all through the year.
Since 2007, the Maine Academy of Modern Music has been providing music lessons, venues and networks to help musicians navigate the world of rock. Students of all ages and abilities are introduced to innovative and inclusive music programs that promote resiliency, self-expression, creativity and determination. MAMM offers Rock Camps, Music Lessons, Rock Bands, Gigs and the annual high school rock off called The MAMM SLAM.  Located in Portland, ME, MAMM services the greater Portland area (Kennebunk – Freeport) during the school year.  Throughout the summer and over school vacation weeks, MAMM's programs often reach other parts of the state, including Machias, Bar Harbor, Kennebunk, and other communities up and down the Maine coast.
