Portland Music Foundations holds annual kick-off event
On Oct. 22, the Portland Music Foundation will have its third-annual kick-off event and open house at One City Center. The event allows musicians and people interested in Portland, Maine's music community to network and sign up for membership with the PMF. Local bands and PMF members will be performing and businesses will be available to discuss their contributions to the local music community. Some of the bands featured are Loki, Roy Davis and Brzowski.
Portland music veterans created this foundation in June 2007. It currently has 300 members working together to help local musicians. Since it started, they have received a grant from the Maine Arts Commission, had a series of educational forums, created benefits such as discounts for members and even worked to teach members about a new beneficial tax law.
