Notable: Though primarily a cover band, this act is comprised of accomplished musicians who've studied at places such as the Berklee College of Music in Boston.

BBFM usually mixes its good-time sets with several originals of the "adult alternative" variety.

Quotable: The Tom on what makes BBFM different: "Unlike a lot of bands that have really good musicians, we're not a player's band. We're just out there having a good time and playing music. We take what we do seriously, but we don't take ourselves seriously -- and people respond to the fact that we're not always trying to be cool."
