Sammy Rae & The Friends headline the Serious Fun Arts Fest, part of a 5-day event featuring music & art in downtown White Plains, New York!

ArtsWestchester’s Serious Fun Arts Fest (Oct 12-16) is thrilled to continue its celebration of the arts with a day of live music featuring Sammy Rae & The Friends in a headliner afternoon concert. The outdoor White Plains concert will take place on Mamaroneck Avenue between Martine and Main Street and will be standing room only. Two bands will open for Sammy Rae & The Friends (TBA). An early-bird ticket price of $20 is available through July 1, 2022.

Brooklyn’s fast-emerging Sammy Rae & The Friends deliver high-energy, spirited and unrestrained shows with all-for-one and one-for-all camaraderie, palpable chemistry, deft virtuosity and vocal fireworks. Complete with rhythm, horn sections, keyboards and backup vocals, their sound is a mélange of Sammy’s influences rooted in classic rock, folk and funk, sprinkled with soul and jazz.

For as much as Sammy Rae & The Friends may be a band, this collective of, dreamers, and artists considers itself a family first. Fronted by singer and songwriter Sammy Rae, the group flourishes in any spotlight. The band has sold-out shows in the Northeast and beyond, including Terminal 5 in NYC, two consecutive nights at the Boston Royal, 9:30 Club in DC, Theatre of Living Arts in Philadelphia, The Showbox in Seattle, the Cannery Ballroom in Nashville, and many more. NPR Music, the Boston Globe and American Songwriter alike have dubbed her an artist to watch is 2022.

While the band considers themselves the “7 faces of The Friends,” they advocate for the importance of their community. Avid music fans themselves, they pride themselves on this original grassroots, word-of-mouth growth. The Friends is their community of followers, artists and creatives who help in the creation of their songs and sustenance of the project—their mixing engineer, band photographer, graphic designer, budget manager, and everyone who hangs around the shows supporting the vision. The shows are like a shot in the arm of affirmation of individuality. They are safe spaces to feel overwhelmed with love and acceptance. “Friends” in the audience are encouraged to dress how they like, dance how they like, join the party and form person-to-person Friendships.

Sammy Rae & The Friends just wrapped a five-week tour celebrating her latest single, “Follow Me Like the Moon,” and will be on the festival circuit this summer. Their next single, “Time Being,” comes out on 7/15/22.
