HINGHAM – The band Overnight, which played at Mad Love Music Festival on Sunday, Oct. 10 is an example of what makes the festival successful and why it continues. 

Started in 2014 in memory of Dave Jodka, a Scituate resident who was killed by cancer, the festival at South Shore Music Conservatory helps raise money for a scholarship in his name to help aspiring South Shore high school musicians get the help they need to get off the ground.

“(The funding) pays for our band manager to listen to our songs and help us write things and play music,” said Cici Monarch, a Hingham High School junior and the lead singer of dream-pop band, Overnight. “It also paid for us to record in Allston at Mad Oak Studios, so we’ll be able to release an EP in a few months.”
