Joshua Louis - (Set time: 8:30 PM)
Joshua Louis
Joshua Louis was born and raised in the picturesque mountains of Virginia. The youngest of five children, Joshua always commanded a presence in the spotlight – a true entertainer from the start! Joshua has a zeal for music and began mastering the piano at a young age, and for a brief stint experimented with the trumpet and French horn.

Joshua studied all genres of music through grade school and college, and has trained in both classical and contemporary piano.

He began his performance career in church at the age of 14 and was leading the church choir in music and song by the age of 17! It wasn’t until Joshua won an audition to perform at his high school graduation that he found himself singing for the very first time in front of a very large audience. It was at that precise moment, in front of thousands of people, that Joshua became enlightened to his yearning to be a performer.

While at Virginia Tech, Joshua continued his endeavors in music, headlining as an entertainer at various venues. His performances have always showcased his original songs, which come from the heart of a soulful artist.

Currently residing on the scenic shore of Jersey City, this singer/songwriter, pianist and board-certified Veterinary Oncologist (oh yes, he is a cancer doctor for animals!...), derives inspiration from everyday life to create melodies that are both tangible and touching.

Although Joshua (Dr. Joshua!) currently works as an Oncologist at BluePearl Veterinary Partners (NYC Veterinary Specialists) in New York City, he also aspires to become an accomplished artist in the music industry. Joshua has a strong drive and passion for life, as evidenced by his noteworthy accomplishments.

Joshua has worked with Producers Ted Cruz (Instant Culture Music) and Dennis Michael Keefe (Tumble Dry Music).
David D'Alessio - (Set time: 7:30 PM)
David D'Alessio
New York via Tucson singer/songwriter David D’Alessio draws frequent comparisons to other current icons in his genre-- the "Jack Johnson of the Southwest"; a voice with the "plaintive heights of Damien Rice"; "tenor reminiscent of Duncan Sheik." But by any standards, his 2007 solo release “Songs to Undress Your Ego” establishes him as a unique talent in his own right. "Ego" has been hailed as “an exploration of the tender and mostly hidden parts of being human…through 11 impeccable songs,” and garnered local and national recognition. In the last year, D'Alessio has shared the stage with the best in his genre: Colby Caillat, Brett Denen, Lifehouse, Missy Higgins, Rocco de Luca, and Newton Faulkner...to name a few. He has also completed 2 tours of the western US and one of Ireland in support of his CD. The single, “Savor the Cold” has been and frequently heard on local and clear channel radio. D’Alessio has also been a featured performer at the Durango Songwriter’s Expo and performed on NBC’s Arizona Midday show.

D’Alessio’s melodic songwriting expresses his carefree, reflective style drawn from pop, rock and latin with his own unique twist. Songs pull from a rich emotional palette and his high tenor confidently handles his memorable melodies and heart-wrenching lyrics. D'Alessio explores the tender and mostly hidden parts of being human, the ability to give love and to cause hurt, to be careless and to enrich.
AyoINMotion - (Set time: 9:30 PM)
AyoINMotion
The passion and energy embedded in AYo’s lyrical content and performance presence commands attention and has captured the eyes and ears of both the hip-hop and spoken-word poetry communities. He’s served on a panel with the likes of Lupe Fiasco, interviewed Russell Simmons for MTV, and toured nationally; performing at legendary venues like the The Shrine, Nuyorican Poet’s Café, Stanford University, and Mendelssohn Theater at the University of Michigan.

AYo and The AY0INM0TI0N band play energetic live hip-hop music on a bed rock of jazz/afrobeat/soul infused instrumentals. Drawing from AYo's powerful lyrics and charismatic stage presence, the band is personified by amazingly talented musicians who believe that showmanship goes hand in hand with musicality. The lyrical content in AYo's music illustrates his experiences as a child growing up during military tyranny in Nigeria and subsequently moving to the inner city of Flint, Michigan. AY0INM0TI0N is a band to watch, feel and experience. His 5-piece band features a back-up vocalist, bass, guitar, keyboard, drums and an occasional horn section.
