Boston-based Americana quintet Best of Friends features multi-instrumentalists Morgan Dorr, John Keefe, Jamel Hawke, Ethan Dorr and Kevin McHugh. You may know Morgan and John from another Boston band - Boys Like Girls. The group originally came together to write a song they would perform at McHugh's wedding, but the excitement from the project blossomed into something more. Be sure to check out their single (and companion video) for "Here We Go"!
