Welcome to Saturday Morning Tunes, an award-winning, family friendly concert series featuring stars of the children’s music scene, hosted at the WTMD performance studio in Towson!
When we were growing up, "kids music" was pretty lame. These days, there's a whole genre of music called "kindie" or "kids rock," and it's full of really great musicians making songs you and your little ones can enjoy together. That's our mission: To present concerts you can enjoy with your kids -- not just for your kids.
The shows are every month on Saturday mornings, broadcast live on the radio with a live studio audience. We've had members of They Might Be Giants, Barry Louis Polisar (who wrote the theme song to "Juno"), Latin Grammy winner 1,2,3, Andres, Baltimore kids rock stars Milkshake and Baby Beats, and more. We put a band together to play all the theme songs from our favorite cartoons, and hosted a super funky "Schoolhouse Rock" tribute.
Doors open at 9 a.m. and the music runs from 9:30 a.m.-11 a.m. Each performance has an opening act as well as a headliner.
We have snacks (organic fig bars and fruit strips) as well as drinks (Horizon milk and Honest juice) which are included in the ticket price for all kids. Race Pace Bicycles also sets up bicycles with training wheels for children to ride around the enclosed plaza outside our studio, and we have coffee and arts and crafts from Garrison Forest School.
The WTMD performance studio is a bright, clean environment with comfy furniture that’s ideal for climbing and sitting. Both our men’s and women’s bathrooms have stainless steel changing tables, and stools for our bathroom sinks.
Also -- kids under 2 are free! However, please reserve a free spot for your kid(s) under 2 so we know how many little ones to expect.
This year, Baltimore Magazine for naming Saturday Morning Tunes a Best of Baltimore award winner! They wrote, "Kids can rejoice at this awesome new concert series, tailored just for them. Tip back a juice box and get ready to rock out."
Beatles tribute with The Rubber Souls
We're throwing back to the original kids rock band, the Beatles, with Baltimore's own The Rubber Souls! Led by power pop singer-songwriter Andy Bopp, the Rubber Souls have been channeling the Fab Four in Charm City for years, and put on one of the best Beatles shows around. They're preparing an hour of all our favorite Beatles songs, from the early days through "Yellow Submarine" and more.
Many thanks to THB Baglery and Deli for providing food for our performers!
