The self-proclaimed DJ, rapper and master of ceremonies, Jasmine Solano will be on hand to entertain the partygoers. From being the only female to open up Rock the Bells in 2009, to touring with Wiz Khalifa in 2010 and DJing for Beyonce in 2011, Jasmine keeps herself thoroughly busy. She has recently dropped her single, “One on One” featuring Shady Records artist, Yellawolf. This world-traveling, bonafide workaholic is poised to make a splash in hip hop.
Minimalist funk. Repetition experiments. Improvisation exercises. Family fun. These are the four things that describe the CSC Funk Band. This 10-piece band is spearheaded by guitarist, Colin Langenus. “The psychedelic avalanche that the band effortlessly induces can be traced up the musical mountain to firm roots in technical mastery, avant-experimentation, and noise-punk ethos.”
