Sammy Rae & The Friends with Midnight Breakfast

Collins Center for the Arts

The Mantra of the Friends?

“Go put a smile on somebody’s face, go tell somebody they’ve got a place in this world, go tell somebody you wanna be friends with them.”

For as much as Sammy Rae & The Friends may be a band, this collective of dreamers and artists considers themselves a family first. Fronted by singer and songwriter Sammy Rae, the group flourishes in any spotlight with a combination of all-for-one and one-for-all camaraderie, palpable chemistry, deft virtuosity, and vocal fireworks. Their sound is a mélange of Sammy’s influences, rooted in classic rock, folk, and funk and sprinkled with soul and jazz. Complete with a rhythm section, two saxophones, keyboards, and plenty of percussion, Sammy Rae & The Friends have delivered their high-energy, spirited and unrestrained shows to sold-out audiences around the US and Europe. After a summer of stellar performances that included headlining SummerStage NYC and Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival, the band has recorded their highly anticipated debut album and headed out for their “CAMP” themed world tour.

About Midnight Breakfast:

Midnight Breakfast is an indie-soul sextet from Maine. Initially covering pop standards and funk tunes, they recorded their self-titled debut album during quarantine and released it in January 2021. Midnight Breakfast blends groovy melodies, kaleidoscopic improvisation, and blissfully jazz-kissed vocals while exploring themes of love, self-discovery, and the universal search for meaning.
