Join us for a night of local music and frivolity as we hold our 3rd annual FUNdraiser for Maine Children For Cannabis Therapy in Downtown Portland.
We are a grassroots volunteer group of families, activists, and supporters throughout Maine who are utilizing and supporting successful alternative therapy for children with epilepsy, cancers, and other childhood illnesses. Our group consists of parents, caregivers, activists, lobbyists, legislators, doctors, lab owners, dispensary owners, and others. We’re very involved with legislation, education, outreach, and research in Maine.
We have another fun night planned this year with non-stop entertainment including music, dancers, speakers, and much more.
Our feature band of the night is The Skyfoot. They are a powerful jam-rock band from Boston, MA. Forming in early 2011, the band has played hundreds of shows all across the United States.
Skyfoot plays a variety of genres from funk, rock, & bluegrass to sonic landscapes and fusion. Their live show features tight compositions and jamming that give way to memorable moments.. If you dig the sounds of Phish, The Derek Trucks Band, Bruce Hornsby, The Grateful Dead, you’ll be stoked you heard Skyfoot!
We also have The Pink Floyd Orchestra. A band very new to us, but sure to surprise and please the most diehard Pink Floyd fan.
Tori Clark is a young woman I personally found. We were talking one evening in June of 2016 when she played a song for me and I asked her on the spot to be in our next show!
Sarah Libby is another musician I randomly found. A Facebook friend had a live stream posted. When I noticed it was a musician, I clicked play. Again, I asked on the spot if she was available!
Many of you may remember Maegan Crowley from opening our show the last two years. We have her back and she has some new songs. Maegan has been accepted to audition for America's Got Talent!
We also will be joined by The Barefoot Truth Dancers, a belly dancing troupe based out of Farmington. They will be joining Skyfoot, and dancing along with a lot of the other performers.
In addition, we have a few guest speakers, hula hoopers, flow artists, a silent auction sporting some very nice items, and a lot more!
