Ok, children of the sun—refresher: Make Music Day is an annual, worldwide event that takes place on the Summer Solstice, June 21st. Musicians in cities throughout the world participate and make music out of doors. Those are the rules. Mark Greene and Carlee Wright have brought this magical event to Salem, and it is shaping up to be the biggest music event in Salem’s history. Really. As of press time, 30 venues and 70 bands are participating in over 130 performances. Salem’s event has broken all the event organizers’ goals for a first time participant. That’s right…we bad. To the right is the confirmed schedule as of press time. But, there’s another week to go, and not all bands have been shuffled into participating venues; bands like City of Pieces, GRAND HEAD, and Aldo Calrissian to name but a few. The Kingsmen’s performance on the Capitol steps at 7pm will finish with a quick lesson and play along – so bring your instrument of choice!

Stay updated on the schedule. Go to MakeMusicDay.org/Salem or find them on Facebook. They are also in need of volunteers; you can sign up on the website as well. Way to go, Salem. Take the day off and experience this city-wide celebration of summer through music.
