THE FRONT PORCH – A DAY OF MUSIC ON FERNDALE PORCHES
Twenty-five porches and over thirty performances

The Front Porch is a one-day music event created to showcase Michigan music artists from around the state playing on front porches of Ferndale, Michigan. The event will feature established as well as up-and-coming/rising acts…performers and groups of all genres -Rock, Folk, Blues, Hip-Hop, Country, Bluegrass, Gospel, etc.

The event will take place on Saturday, June 23 from 12 noon – 6 pm. Each artist/band will play for about 30-minutes.


Founder and Executive Producer Michael Benghiat of Southfield, Michigan came up with the idea after attending the Larchmere (suburb of Cleveland) Porchfest several years ago. An avid music fan he wanted to use the “porchfest” concept to develop a music television show called “The Front Porch.”


“To see if the concept had any legs he (along with his partner Gary Graff) pitched Detroit Public Television,” said Benghiat. “They instantly liked the idea and expressed interest but indicated they would need to see a pilot for the show before granting any airtime.”

So the two decide to develop and plan The Front Porch as an event first. They will film various performances throughout the day and then create the pilot that will hopefully get the TV show off the ground.


Music journalist Gary Graff, is a partner and will serve as host of the planned TV show. He will chat with artists/band members to provide insight into origins, history, evolution, successes, etc. interspersed with performances on a front porch of the musician’s hometowns.


The Front Porch will take place in neighborhoods West of Woodward Avenue and in the neighborhoods just south of Nine Mile – beginning from Troy Street to no further south than Marshall and no further west than Central Street. And then north of Nine Mile no further than Maplehurst.

The event is promoted as a “family-friendly,” non-alcoholic event. Like porchfest events have brought out people of all ages and it is typical to see parents with young kids, even those in strollers, enjoying a day of free music.


Cost: Free
Date: June, 24
Time: 12 noon – 6 pm
Location: Ferndale Residents Front Porches
