Teneia is the product of Mississippi native Teneia Sanders-Eichelberger and her husband, Ben Eichelberger. In 2015, the duo decided to take their music on the road full-time to spread a message of love and equality through their songs. After completing a successful crowd-funding campaign, the two took a huge leap of faith: they sold most of their possessions and bought a 32-foot travel trailer to tour North America and reach more hearts with their message.

Sarah White, best known in Minneapolis for her work with Traditional Methods and Black Blondie, fuses sultry vocals with eclectic lyrics and dirty beats. Collaborating and rockin’ stages with talented artists like King Britt, K-OS, Imani Uzuri, M.anifest and more, she also proudly took home first place in Scion’s Electronic Vocalist Competition in 2009. White has spent the last five years making music in Brooklyn, NY and has recently returned home to share her unique talents with her home cities.

50 years ago, magic was made on the stage of the Sands Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, when the timeless cool of Frank Sinatra met the robust swing of the Count Basie Orchestra. Sinatra at the Sands has remained a beloved classic ever since, the perfect marriage of old-school pop and big band jazz. Singer, songwriter and saxophonist Curtis Stigers has been bringing those worlds together in his own music for the last three decades (along with touches of nearly every other genre one could call to mind), which makes him an ideal candidate to reinterpret Ol’ Blue Eyes’ cherished repertoire for modern ears.

Since 1968, Tower of Power has delivered their unique brand of “Urban Soul Music” to audiences around the world. The band’s horn driven sound is unclassifiably cool, and they feature one of the funkiest rhythm sections alive. Amazingly, 5 of the ten current members of the band are founding members, something unheard of from most 40 year old bands. Fans that come out to see Tower of Power will get a look at their brand new lead singer, Ray Greene. Castillo says he’s a perfect fit. “It’s phenomenal. Most bands lose their singer, and it’s over. But, we’ve changed singers and other players so many times, the fans actually get excited about who’s next.” he said, as the band has had over forty members throughout their history.
