We got to meet Mothers of Mayhem members Jami Taylor and Jessica Groom. The Mothers of Mayhem is a rock band that is comprised of 4 moms who have 19 kids between the 4 members (who all happen to be neighbors). They play hard rock from bands like Metallica, Black Sabbath, Guns N` Roses and AC/DC, as well as some originals. Find out more from them at

Your support will help keep Ogden Botanical Gardens beautiful by providing funding for volunteer-tended gardens, gardening classes and workshops, educational field trips, and family-friendly events. Our gardens are also the backdrop for many weddings and family reunions.
