Drummer, composer, and now band leader and singer, Gerald Law II built a reputation as the go-to drummer for jazz and R&B artists. If you’ve seen him play, you know why he’s affectionately called “the smiling drummer.” From his drum throne, Law drives the rhythm and elevates the performance of everyone around him.
Dane Myers is an environmental rapper /songwriter/activist doing concerts powered by his Tesla (which will be powering the whole party!). He explores themes such as climate change and the idea of a New American Dream which he believes is a movement of shifting our value system to sustainability and community action.
NUYA is the alias of Yuan Chang- an activist and EDM producer that wishes to restore the yin yang balance of the world through electronic music. She wishes to be an agent for social and environmental restoration and explores how these are often a result from losing our “wild”. Her dreams are to create an ecovillage so her grandma can finally have a home of her own.
Chris Dryfoos performs indie rock music with folk and psychedelic influences. He has released 6 albums and 3 EPs as a solo artist and part of various bands. His current band, Chris and the Chemtrails, unites some of Orlando’s best musicians to showcase his songs and those written by the group’s members
