Boston musicians and a few special guests came together Thursday night in the city’s TD Garden arena for Boston Strong, a benefit concert for One Fund Boston, the fund established to benefit the victims of the Boston Marathon bombings.

Boston’s own Boston kicked off the night with “Rock & Roll Band” followed by “Smokin’,” “More Than a Feeling” and “Foreplay / Long Time.” Singer Tommy DeCarlo told the sold-out crowd, “Tonight, we are all Boston.”

Among those who followed them were The J. Geils Band, Dropkick Murphys, New Kids on the Block with special guest Boys II Men; country singer Jason Aldean; and comedians Steven Wright and Dane Cook.

Also performing was James Taylor with Carole King, who did an eight-song set that included “You’ve Got a Friend,” which was followed by Jimmy Buffett joining Taylor on “Mexico” before he did a set of his own.

Aerosmith closed out the five-hour-plus show with a seven-song set that included “Train Kept A-Rollin’,” “Sweet Emotion,” The Beatles’ “Come Together” and Boston’s unofficial anthem, a cover of The Standells’ “Dirty Water.”  Tyler said, “Boston got its heart broken a couple months ago, something real bad, but if they think they can keep us down, they can dream on”
