Amel Larrieux wrote and demoed a song when she was only 18 years, which led to her pairing with musician/producer Bryce Wilson to form the duo Groove Theory. The duo’s tunes, saturated with sounds of romance and sensuality were showcased in their breakthrough hit, “Tell Me,” which broke the top ten on the Billboard Hot 100 and the top five on the R&B charts. After the duo split and time apart, both artists have come into their own, creating new material and performances well worth the listen.

Neal and Alan Evans first invited guitarist Eric Krasno to get down at their Woodstock, NY studio, to share their mutual love for the great soul-jazz organ trios of the 60’s and 70’s. They went on to form Soulive and released numerous records and recordings with acclaimed artists like Chaka Khan, Dave Matthews, Talib Kweli and John Scofield.

DJ Questlove is well known across the musical sphere as The Roots’ drummer and joint front-man. Whether known for the twelve albums The Roots produced or his performances with the band on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Questlove’s impact on music today is undeniable. His passion for music is eminent with talent in not only percussion, but production, DJ-ing, and dub video clips as well.
