*Executive Steel Band (ESB) plays all types of music on steel drums: Blues, Reggae, Calypso, Samba, Funk, Soca..., Happy Music! ESB encourages audience participation and is glad to officiate a fun fun fun Limbo contest for the kids -- young and older. The band is known for its original Caribbean styling of steelpan, percussions, and bass guitar, with smooth vocal sounds, made famous in New Orleans.

*Huerta Culture plays dance music for parties. The band mixes cumbia, ska, reggae, hip-hop, blues, rock, and balkan influences to create a sound that has been dubbed 'psichocumbia'. With 4 singers in the band sometimes all switching verses throughout a song and singing in English, Spanish, and Quechua (an indigenous language of Bolivia), Huerta Culture keeps arrangements dynamic and eclectic. The phat bass and rhythmic keys are accompanied by a wizard trumpet. Some songs also feature the guacharaca and the Andean pan pipes. In 2014 Huerta Culture released the full length album HOMEGROWN.

*Roland & The Roots Riddim is establishing itself in the Austin music scene as an entertaining, danceable, authentic roots reggae band with the potential to grow into a regional and national act. Roland Kemokai, in addition to being a high energy front-man, a powerful singer, a multi-instrumentalist and a songwriter, is also a published author, certified life coach and an in-demand speaker. Born into a tribal village in Liberia, Roland was discarded on a dump-pile as a baby. He struggled through poverty, abuses, and a violent civil war utilizing remarkable gifts of strength and perseverance. Now, through his music he shares his beliefs in the power of forgiveness, positive thinking, and the potential for greatness within us all. These qualities have resonated with all the band members, who each have a strong work ethic and the belief that through their music they can contribute both locally to their community and more broadly to social justice.
