Don't Let Me Down

Don't Let Me Down

Last month, we got the news that our guitarist, Nate, accepted a new job in Bozeman. This is one of the last recording we have with him, and we are super grateful that we got it in the books. Check it out! One of our favorite Beatles tunes to cover.

We covered the song “Angela” by the Lumineers! Have a listen and tell us what you think! It’s mashed up with another song, that I hope you can get behind.

Carol of The Bells

This Thanksgiving break, Paul and I decided to record me attempting to sing all the parts of Carol of The Bells. This is how it turned out!

We just released a new single! It’s called Karma and the music video features some amazing skaters from the Moxi Skate Team. Enjoy!

Montana Wedding Band

In addition to our original music pursuits, we also do LOTS of cover gigs, up to and including corporate events, private parties, and weddings!  Why should you hire us!?  Because we have all the funky jams on cue that will keep the whole family dancing all night long.  We are also a group who has spent the time putting in the hours for our craft.  We're not just some hooligans you found off the street. Our group consists of all professional players and has over 16 years collectively of collegiate musical training.  We're ready to wow your crowd and get the good times rolling.  Here To Make Friends has honed in on all the funnest tunes from the 50's to the 70's, so if that kind of music speaks to your soul (why wouldn't it?!!), then give us a shout and we'll whip you up a quote.  Are you getting married out of town?  No problem!  We'll find a way to be there for your most important day!  Summer bookings go fast, so reach out via our contact page, and we'll put you in the calendar! 

Treat Me Like A Fool

"Treat Me Like a Fool" is one of our favorite original tunes, so we decided to make a little music video out of it. Thankfully we had a chance to have Mandy with Field Guide Designs shoot the video for us.  It was also a really nice opportunity for us to introduce you to our latest addition to the band: Ross Bridgeman.  He will be playing keyboards and singing some sweet vocals in our 2018 season.  You may have heard this song in one of our previous Ep's, but we decided to slow the song down and give it a more bluesy ballad feel.  Let us know what you think in the comments below and don't forget to give us a follow on fb or instagram.  Much love from Montana.

Giant Squid Plays Tiny Ukulele

This Halloween my sister spent about a month making these amazing and elaborate costumes. She compiled paint swatches from several hardware stores and fashioned a paper dress using staples and cardboard in an intricate design. She also handmade a giant squid costume for her husband using tablecloth material, wire, cardboard, and stuffing. Her baby boy modeled a scuba diver outfit, complete with handmade yellow flippers.

They hosted a sweet family photo shoot of them sporting this awesome gear which you can see here.  

Paul and I knew that these handmade costumes needed more airtime. It had taken a month to build them, after all. Ultimately, we came up with a collaborative 'Beatles Themed Halloween Video.' The process was elaborate, tedious, and hilarious. It checked all the right boxes. We also borrowed a tiny piano from a friend and music producer, Kati O'Toole, from her collection of instruments. The kazoo was all we needed to seal the deal. Tell us what you think of how it turned out!

You Take My Mind Off The Sad Things

You Take My Mind Off The Sad Things

A love song that Paul wrote for Tabby on their first anniversary. Cutest video ever.
