The Johns are a musically groovy, visually striking, and lyrically unprecedented garage tropicalia band from New York City. The band combines the complexity and insight of The Silver Jews with the immediacy, economy, and seaside sensibilities of The Ramones, and the softly intricate rhythms of the Caribbean music heard at every bodega in town.

Cristian Allexis y Urbanova is a musical group from the Dominican Republic that expresses their passion for music via Latin rhythms such as Bachata, Bolero, and Fusion. The band has an original way to remind the audience that love is best expressed vibrantly through music. Cristian Allexis & Urbanova have just released the first single “Salud” which tells the story of people falling in love via social media and cheering or saying “salud” for their forbidden love.

Catahoula Cajun Band is a New York based group that plays Cajun dance music of Southwest Louisiana. While all the band members hail from north of the Mason-Dixon line, their love of toe-tappin’ dance and traditional music inspired them to tackle the two-steps, waltzes, and Cajun-French lyrics of Acadiana. The name of the band is taken from the Catahoula Hound Dog, native to Louisiana. Catahoula hounds are known for their high energy and we like to think our music shares that trait.
