Aabaraki (7:30PM)

Soulful intellect and passion lead you on a journey and youre never quite sure where you'll wind up. Embracing the creative fusion of rock, funk and soul, alongside acts like Frank Ocean and The Weekend, Aabaraki is poised to assault the airwaves with their undeniable grit, beats, and grooves.


Rainy Milo (8PM)


Rainy Milo has a natural affinity with the rootsy sounds of south-east London where she was born and raised. Her voice is soulful and mature way beyond her years, while her music blends jazz, hip hop, RnB and pop into something effortlessly cool, forward-thinking and hugely accessible. 


Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band (8:30PM)


HORNS! DANCING! ROMANCE! Kat is a powerhouse capable of full-throated howling & a sensuous chanteuse who can purr like a kitten. Think young Bonnie Raitt meets Amy Winehouse. The bands roots draw heavily from all American music to forge a sound that blends Memphis soul & new school RnB. 


Taylor Berrett (9PM)


Taylor Berrett is a breakout singer/songwriter signed to the production team SRP,
to Arthouse/ Warner Chappell as a songwriter, and Warner Bros Records as a recording artist.

Taylor recorded his debut album with superstar producer Jake Gosling. Taylors music ranges across a music spectrum, from acoustic guitar to catchy pop hits. 


Sid Sriram (9:30PM)


Meet Sid Sriram, a singer/songwriter and Berklee College of Music graduate who hails from Califonia's Bay Area. Sid deftly synthesizes elements of R+B, Hip-Hop, Indie/Alt Rock, Indian and electronic music to shape his unique sound. Sid is currently working with visionary producer, DJ Khalil on his debut LP. 


Mary C and The Stellars (10PM)

"Keep An Eye On This Girl Who Rocks!" - BuzzFeed
"Powerhouse Vocalist!" - ELLE Magazine 
"Watch Out Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings, Mary C and The Stellars pack quite the vocal punch!"


The Rooks (11PM)


THE ROOKS are a New York City-based sextet that draw from an eclectic catalogue of influences (the melodic sensibilities of Stevie Wonder, the staggered backbeats of J Dilla, the vocal intricacies of The Dirty Projectors) as they dance the line between music that makes you think and feel good. 


Jay Stolar (11:30PM)

This New Yorker writes, records & plays just about everything on his sophisticated, soulful, pop-rock debut. Cant deny the emotional depth of his music either. His first single "Like You Do" reached #80 on MediaBase and his track "Brooklyn Hustle" become the anthem for the Brooklyn Nets this Spring.


The Suffers (12AM)


Based out of Houston, the 10-piece bands soulful sound has garnered the acclaim of everyone from Russell Simmons to the Houston Press, who awarded the Suffers Best Live Act honors in 2013 and "Best Soul/R&B" in 2014.
