ARTIST BIOS:
CABILDO is a West Michigan based alternative Latin rock collective that delivers a unique blend of cumbia, ska, folk and other genres of music from Latin and South America. The world's greatest Latin folk rock dance collective! (here's a taste! https://youtu.be/qmr71UekgfM)

MEL-V's lush blend of soulful grooves, peppered with free spirited raw rock energy, surpasses all expectations. He effortlessly commands the guitar to sing, cry, scream and flip. With his Mel V COLLECTIVE you'll experience a full-on auditory experience you will not soon forget. (please, you gotta watch this. It's a slow burn, very awesome, Mel is going to be famous: https://youtu.be/IlbZqVOq0lE)

Ed Hamell, performing as the one-man HAMELL ON TRIAL, is armed with a battered 1937 Gibson acoustic guitar that he amplifies mightily and strums like a machine gun, a politically astute mind that can't stop moving, and a mouth that can be profane one minute and profound the next. He's long been a favorite of Aesop Rock, Kimya Dawson, Ani DiFranco. Henry Rollins called him "a one man rock show." Surely his performance is NOT to be missed. (this song and video are NSFW! cartoon violence, cartoon phallic snake dances, says the eff-word; it's also a song about effective parenting: https://youtu.be/QzbQdzfZCwc)

As a founding member of The Almighty Foot Clan, WUZEE has gained a reputation as one of the most entertaining performers in West Michigan. Though he draws massive influence from hip-hop titans such as MF-Doom and Wu-Tang Clan, Wuzee's upbeat style and choice samples never fail to draw a crowd. A nimble lyricist in his own right, Wuzee continues to collaborate with many hip hop groups and performers from around the country. Listen here: Wuzeeraps.com

SAMIL is a hip-hop/electronic producer and DJ based in Michigan, born in Paterson, NJ and raised in Cleveland. He is founder of underground independent label Loop Fiction and member of the Almighty Foot Clan collective. Samil and Wuzee are collaborators in the studio and on the stage, and this will be a fantastic opportunity to catch them showing the skills they've spent years sharpening.

Micah aka DJ M-SELECT! GR-based, wears many hats in addition to DJ such as producer, rhymer, and WYCE programmer. (Check out his sounds at soundcloud.com/m-select, m-select.bandcamp.com, mixcloud.com/makinselections)
