Band Bio


"Here To Make Friends" is a blues rock group that currently resides in the beautiful Kalispell, Montana. They perform both cover shows and original music written by Paul Merendino Jr. Their goal is to channel the sounds of some of their idols from the 50's through the 70's in rock and roll and soul music. They currently have three EPs on the market. They are entitled "Nothing But The Best",  "Restless Eyes", and "Fool's Errand". 

Here To Make Friends has performed all over the northwest region of Montana and would love the opportunity to start the party at your venue or event. Reach out via e-mail on our contact page for a quote or with any questions!
