KIMBERLY HAYNES with Vito Gregoli – Kindled by an awareness of divine guidance and conscious connection with spirit, singer/songwriter KIMBERLY HAYNES brings forth an uplifting invitation to discover a sacred space deep within the heart. The spectrum of her eclectic and enlightening songs evokes both the tenderness of a mother’s touch and the ancient feminine power of a tribal priestess singing her truth. Her debut album “Awaken Me” was nominated for Best Vocal Album and Album of the Year in OneWorldMusic awards and was recently reviewed in LAYoga Magazine. She is accompanied by her co-producer and co-conspirator David Vito Gregoli.

ALFRED JOHNSON is a highly regarded singer/songwriter & funky piano player and is considered by some one of this century’s most animated & original songwriters. Alfred co-wrote 3 songs with RICKIE LEE JONES on her Platinum Grammy Award winning premiere album containing the hit single ‘Chuck E’s in Love’. His energetic style of playing the keys brings a wonderful compliment to his music. Alfred’s songs have been covered by Diane Reeves & Ernie Watts. Known for his clever song crafting, Alfred’s lyric-driven tunes will captivate you. His music encompasses Funk, New Orleans, Pop, Rock ‘n’ Soul, Gospel, “Rhythm & Bluegrass,” and more. Alfred has written over 900 tunes, and at least 70 of them are published.

THE PAINKILLERS semi-acoustic show – Playing a collection of songwriter Steven Moos’ soulful, bluesy tunes & some choice covers, each Painkillers’ performance is a unique and memorable musical experience. What’s special about this band is the organic energy, great vocal harmonies, and interplay between founding members Steve Moos and lead guitarist Don Kirkpatrick. Joining them on background vocals, Carol McArthur & Lauri Reimer, and Julia “The Duchess” Thornton on percussion.
