Twenty-one local bands will be performing at the 9th Annual JP Music Festival this Saturday. The free festival will kickoff with a rendition of America the Beautiful at 11:55 am, and then the bands will takeover on two stages until 7 pm. The JP Music Festival is a great event for people (and dogs) of all ages. It's at the Pinebank Field at Jamaica Pond, so there's lots of room to move around. There will also be food trucks, including The Bacon Truck, Bao Nation, Bon Me, Bukhara Indian Bistro, Daddy’s Bonetown Burgers, J.P. Licks, and Roxy’s Grilled Cheese.
This Saturday 20 local solo musicians and bands who either live or work in Jamaica Plain will take two stages for seven hours at the 7th Annual JP Music Festival at Jamaica Pond's Pinebank Field. The Jamaica Plain Music Festival is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization created by Rick Berlin and Shamus Moynihan in 2011 and this year’s festival will be held on Saturday, September 9 from 12 to 7 pm. The festival is free to attend. The festival "assembles a convergence of musical genres, drawing upon the wide-ranging artistic community living in this part of Boston," according to the JP Music Festival website. The festival is a family- and pet-friendly event with a kids music activity area and food trucks.
There will be 22 musical acts this year at the 7th Annual JP Music Festival being held on September 9. Rick Berlin and Shamus Moynihan created the festival in 2011 and this year's festival will be held at Jamaica Pond's Pinebank Field on Saturday, September 9 from 12 to 7 pm. The JP Music Festival features solo musicians and bands who either live or work in Jamaica Plain. And you'll probably recognize some of the performers who will entertain continuously from two stages. The festival will also offer music activities for kids with Jaymz Purtle and Mike Greensteen.
The Jamaica Plain Music Festival is a free community event produced by a volunteer group of residents (Rick Berlin, Justin McCarthy, Charles McEnerney, Shamus Moynihan, David Mueller, and Margie Nicoll) who want to bring the music of great JP musicians to the neighborhood we all love so much. In 2016, the festival featured 22 acts, eight food trucks and activities for kids. Thousands of people attended over the course of the afternoon. The JP Music Festival gives dozens of musicians the opportunity to perform for and gain new fans, for children to create and play instruments, and for Jamaica Plain and Boston to come together as a community and celebrate something we all love: music! We get a ton of support from Jamaica Plain businesses and event attendees.
