"Jazz at Vernissage" - TRANSATLANTIC DUO

Vladimir Fridman - Guitar, Voice
Alexander Paperny - Balalaika

You might think there is not much in common between Bach and Klezmer, or between Jazz and traditional Russian music. Yet Vladimir and Alexander command their instruments with virtuosity to seamlessly bring together all these diverse music styles in their exploration of the world's musical heritage.

Pamela Means & Kristen Ford

Pamela Means "one of the fiercest guitar players and politically-rooted songwriters in the music industry today," (Curve Magazine) is an internationally-touring singer-songwriter and jazz musician.

Kristen Ford is very energetic. Her bandmates are quite good and hold the whole sound together which frees her up to get very sweaty, at times run around off stage, other times make up songs on the spot, squeaks, inappropriate banter and very rarely, just play some songs.

Fancy Trash & The Sun Parade

Fancy Trash works the line between rock and folk, blending a non-traditional sensibility with the tradition of acoustic instruments to make something unique. Folk-tinged indie rock. Don’t let the acoustic instruments fool you, Fancy Trash is a rock band.

Dave Houghton (vocals, guitars), Paul Kochanski (upright bass) and Jason Smith (drums) explore new ways to bring out the folk for the anti-folk.

Shannon Whitworth

The coast is calling, and Shannon Whitworth is packed and ready. If her first two albums were cross-country treks (and they were, taking her across the U.S. and Canada in support of Chris Isaak and the Tedeschi-Trucks Band), her latest release, High Tide, is a trans-Atlantic voyage. Leaving all preconceptions of the banjo-wielding songstress behind, Whitworth’s new adventure steers into waters both familiar and refreshingly new.

The Street Hearts

They don't have a CD. They've been a band for only a few short months.  They are four young college sophomores or freshmen who, despite their passion for music, are studying History, Economics, Engineering, and Dance.  They are not yet known far away from UCLA.  Perhaps the best way to describe them?  “The best band you’ve not yet heard of, but should someday.”
