The Bows and Ties: Blending together sweet Texas charm with the honest sounds of New York, this diverse duo brings a vintage vibe to their music.

Pocket of Lollipops: Posh Punk- Maitejosune Urrechaga  & TonyKapel make music, art, films, novels, comics, installations and other what nots that make them happy. Some believe they are Aliens, don’t be scared they are here to share.

Max Holm Quartet: Multi-award-winning quartet comprised of some of the top young, up & coming jazz musicians in the country. Have performed with Wynton Marsalis at Jazz at Lincoln Center, among many other honors.

DJ Hank Justice: Hank’s mission is to destroy musical injustice in the form of DJ sets chock-full of music that people can enjoy and move to. He is often asked what he is playing and is often told that his selection is unique and excellent. This is because he spends hours each day carefully digging for gems anywhere he can. He loves sharing these sounds with the world and hopes to be able to do so more often and for more people. It’s a musical story that’s forever under construction.

Prince Aderele: Our show will entail a live Fire Eating Performance/Dance in honor if Sango the Yoruba Power of Fire, Thunder and Royal Lineage. We will perform to an African Drum Sound Track on CD.

ViKerrious: Kerri Aultman is a new age performance artist, model and dancer. Born with a love to move, a love of music and a lyrical pulse beating through her being. ViKerrious, the official brand of Kerry Aultman is making it’s mark on today’s art, dance and entertainment generation featuring fresh perspectives on personal experiences, topics and movements with strong messages that captivate her audience.

WallBrawl is dedicated to bringing emerging and established artist together with art lovers in an interactive environment. The “BRAWL” is a live exhibition of skill, technique and creativity. The audience witnesses the artistic process from inception to finished product in a short time frame. The culmination is a new avenue for a deeper connection between the artist and the art aficionado.

Robert Korhonen: I can capture an amazing realistic likeness of anyone in 10 minutes. I have studied human anatomy and practiced my art for so many years, I have become an expert in drawing young, old, black, white, asian, men, women, ahhh, women, I especially have a a talent for capturing the beauty of a woman, with a glamourous touch. “He made me look better than I really was”.

Art and Wine Miami: I will have little canvas and some paint and invite people to paint a free form or copy some of the samples that I will display.Myself and my assistant will guide them.

Oscar Fuentes is a poet and performance artist from Miami, and the front man for The Oscar Fuentes Combo, a musical project where he blends his original beat-poetry with a jazz fusion band. Oscar is happy to have birthed, Beautiful Women Will Never Know, a body of poetic works and short stories that he put together, in his words: “as honestly as I could”.

Nicole Malcolm: I feel the energy of the music and crowd then use that to create beauty through an allotted duration of time.

Freshly Squeezed Massages: A bodywork treatment experience. When was the last time you took an hour – just for you? Breathe deep. Relax. Let go. Rejuvenate. We are at our best when we take time for ourselves.
