The Chameleons are an amateur musical group in the most noble sense of the word. They play music just because they love to play music. The group originally formed in 1997 to provide music for the Chelmsford Winterfest in Chelmsford, MA, and played at this festival every February through 2012. The group's other regular gigs were the Martins Pond Summer Festival in North Reading, MA, and Musical Tapestry Night at TEMV in Lowell, MA. On July 8, 2017, they made their first Porchfest appearance at the Jamaica Plain Porchfest (video links are in the Scrapbook).

Depending upon the setting, The Chameleons play folk, rock, children's music, or some combination of these styles. This group is not in any way affiliated with the British group of the same name.
