“March 2 and 3 will be great nights for live music in Portland, Maine. These musicians create works of art, not just concert experiences,” said promoter Greg Martens, Go Big For Hunger founder. “I have a long and, at times, storied music history, which includes accumulating treasured relationships with everyone on the lineup. I am lucky, and I take tremendous joy in creating and sharing the Go Big Jam with music lovers.”
Night One guest artists include local artists: Tom Faunce, Jenna Mammina, Charles Wigo IV, John Hanrahan, Jeff Glidden, Matt Day, Brian Graham, James Taylor, Chris Dow, Compton Maddux, Sam Whitman, Chris Coninis, Chip Sullivan, Treelock Wheelock, Dan Kelly, Rodney Sturdee, Marcus Kaplan, Marc Chillemi, Jeff Merrow, Tim Tyler, David Graham, and Michael Taylor.
Night Two guests include the Beyond Description, members of Rustic Overtones, SeepeopleS, theWorst, Darby Sabin, Hambone, and Frank Bang 3, plus many others.
“As we are all aware, any number of children living with hunger here in Maine or anywhere is unacceptable,” said Martens. “I started Go Big For Hunger to raise money to support Maine’s anti-hunger organization Full Plates Full Potential. Go Big raises money through concerts, and I appreciate my friends filling our stages and packing the house to enjoy the shows.”
