The following description was submitted by the event organizer.
Ken Marino and David Wain met at NYU in 1988, where they co-founded the legendary sketch comedy group THE STATE. They stayed friends and collaborators over the years, working together on movies like Role Models, Wet Hot American Summer and Wanderlust and TV shows like Children's Hospital, Medical Police and The State. Ken also has acted in a dumb amount of television series and currently stars on The Other Two (HBO) and Party Down (Starz).
They are ALSO middle-aged dads and wannabe rockstars. So recently, they got together with a group of other old friends (some dads, some not; some middle-aged, some not) and started jamming, playing a diverse songbook of classic rock, pop, Motown, alt, New Orleans, favorites from the 60s, 70s and 80s. When clips of these jam sessions went viral on social media, it led to some sold-out live shows in Los Angeles and San Francisco, which solidified the Middle Aged Dad Jam Band as “literally the best live music show of all time.” (NY Times)*
