The Family Music Jam & Movie Festival in the Park is a philanthropic effort sponsored by SOUNDBOXX, FSM Instructional, with the support of Baltimore City Department of Recreation & Parks. While this family-friendly event provides free entertainment, it also offers multi-faceted opportunities for businesses and companies to master target-marketing.
The event is recognized as a community-based attraction full of diverse, family-oriented, fun-filled entertainment and attractions in a safe environment. This BYOC (Bring Your Own Chair) monthly event will be Free to the public, and held at various regional parks to ensure participation from all Baltimore City neighborhoods.

Each month Family Night Park Movie Festival will invite a local non-profit organization or charity to share its mission with the audience, and seek donations. Your sponsorship funds will cover licensing of the movies, audio/visual equipment, staff, insurance, and city fees.
Moreover, it is a perfect vehicle for Sponsors to promote their business, distribute advertising materials, or coupons.We are currently seeking corporations and businesses to help sponsor a series of movies in various regional parks. These events will be free to the public.
The Family Music Jam & Movie in the Park sponsorship applications are due by May 1, 2013. Sponsorship monetary donations are requested no later than May 1, 2013.
The Bayview Community Association very much appreciates the recommendation from Recreation & Parks as a site for the Family Music Jam & Movie Festival in the Park. Over the summer, one event was held per month with a FREE music jam session during the afternoon and family friendly feature film in the evening.
Mr. Lurenda Featherstone, director of the project, did a fantastic job organizing and hosting all three of the events over the summer. Along with the concerts and movies, Mr. Featherstone’s family offered food and refreshments for the neighbors and participants in the event. The jamming musicians played terrific tunes including jazz, some hip hop and even a pan flute. The evenings provided three good movies -Puss N Boots, Up. and Happy Feet 2.
I received numerous comments from neighbors who aftended, and those who live nearby and all were positive expressions of appreciation for the hard work that was put into making these events possible. The Featherstone staff not only cleaned up after the event, they arrived early in the day and cleaned the park of debris and glass.
The Bayview Community Association was happy to provide them use of the bathroom facilities at the Joseph Lee Field House. as the staff (Mr. Featherstone’s family) monitored those entering and leaving the building to ensure that no vandalism or theft occurred.
We hope that Mr. Featherstone will consider this project for Summer 2013 with the support of Baltimore Ciry Recreation & Parks. The Bayview Community is hoping to form a committee of community members to assist with the planning and preparation. These events were a great success, well attended by the neighborhood, and we look forward to working with Mr. Featherstone again!
Very Truly Yours
Bayview’s Movies in the Park
Our last of a series of three movies, was shown at the Joseph Lee Park on August 18, with another great turnout from the community. The neighborhood enjoyed three movies over the summer, along with some very good music provided by area bands and musicians who gave their time to provide FREE entertainment.
The Family Music Jam & Movie Festival in the Park, was presented by Mr. Lurenda Featherstone, a Baltimore musician. As a musician and music teacher, he wanted to encourage talented young people and musicians to share their talents with the community, by offering a stage and sound system, drums and other musical equipment . Mr. Featherstone and his family organized these events, working from the afternoon to very early hours of the morning, taking care of every detail.
Our thanks to Featherstone Music Instruction and our sponsors SOUNDBOXX, Baltimore City Recreation & Parks, Patterson High School and the Bayview Community Association for their support of The Family Music Jam & Movie Festival in the Park.
We were also fortunate to receive a block grant from Southeast CDC to assist with the costs associated with the August 18th day and evening of activities.
We look forward to working with Mr. Featherstone for another summer season of entertainment.
Since 1998, the Featherstone family has been teaching and developing talent in people of all ages to be creative in the art of music under the Featherstone Music Instructional 501(c)(3).
