Gringo Motel
Equal parts playful, ambient and ominous, Gringo Motel is an evolving music and art excursion that evokes reality as a picture show. The sound animates unusual love triangles, romantic betrayal, and runaway circus chickens through the desolate resonance of the American Southwest. Gringo Motel's influences include mariachi, spaghetti westerns, surf rock, David Lynch, and the circus.

Kosher Jazz
Dishing out their rollicking blend of klezmer and jazz, Kosher Jazz will keep your party hopping! The core of the band is international yiddish songstress and trumpeter Susan Hoffman-Watts, Audrey Betsy Welber on clarinet, saxophones, and flute (both members of the famed "Klez Dispensers" band), and James Lafferty on keyboards. Joining the performance during this special event will be Philadelphia drum star Lew Liebman and world class bassist Steve Varner.


Spare Parts Vocal Band
The Spare Parts Vocal Band produces music using their hearts, souls and voices. The band performs and produces recordings which might be described as an eclectic mix of pop covers and original works. Founded in 2002, the Spare Parts Vocal Band has performed at coffee house gigs, fundraisers, competitions, business meetings, cabaret nights, schools & street corner serenades.
