The Ellameno Beat
, from Jensen Beach, Florida, is a youthful reggae group that thrives off the sun, salt, and surf of south Florida. The band’s songwriter, lead singer, and lead guitar player Reggie Froom founded the band in 2012. The band has quickly made a name for itself for both its original roots reggae music and its covers of such bands as Steel Pulse, Tribal Seeds, and SOJA. The band is rounded out with Dylon Hixon on bass, Kyle Lange and Walker Brantingham on keys, and James Rosenblit on drums.

KRISP is a rare South Florida band that unites the local music scene's various factions under one dance beat. The usual downtown hipster club crowd, the Tobacco Road types, the Electric Pickle set, event he singer songwriters have all found something to love in this quartet. It makes sense - there are a few different threads to grab onto in this groups four-to-the-floor rhythms.

The sound is totally danceable, bordering on disco rhythms, but totally organic; those funky, retro synth loops are all live.

Suenalo - How best to describe the sound of the 8-member musical extravaganza known as Suenalo? Jam band. Fusion. Latin funk.  Multicultural cocktail. The sound of Miami. Afro-Latin-Baby-Makin’- Descarga-Funk. Take your pick -- they all work!

The Nouveaux Honkies bring you a sound reminiscent of a time when rock was on its first date with roll, crafting a unique blend of blues, classic R&B, and vintage rockabilly/country in a blistering live performance that is frenzied, energetic, and thoroughly cool.
