Bee Parks and the Hornets was created in 2018 by Maine-based music and theatre maker, Brittany Parker. Brittany writes most of the music and lyrics for the band, singing lead vocals while playing ukulele and electric guitar. The Hornets include Carl Ferm (vocals, saxophone, keyboard) and Joey Dupuis (vocals, trumpet, lead guitar), who both have also written music for the group. Other band members make up a rotating roster of Hornets which include Mélissa Smith (bass guitar), Jarly Bobadilla (bass guitar), and Cedar Ellis (drums). The band has played at theaters, libraries, museums, schools, zoos, and parks across the greater Northeast area. They released their first album, Welcome to Our Hive, which can be found on Spotify, iTunes, and all other digital music platforms.
