Members of the legendary ska band Hepcat, Deston Berry and Alex Désert, form half of the vocal team, and the latter also has a successful career on screen, including roles in the films Swingers and High Fidelity. The other half is

WESTERN STANDARD TIME
West Coast All-Star Ska Big Band paying tribute to early 1960′s Jamaican Ska originators, The Skatalites. Pooling from the best-of-the-best Ska musicians from the last 20 years, Western Standard Time is a groundbreaking project commemorating 50 years of musical heritage. With the shear size of the group, the power and harmonic depth will be revolutionary but at the same time the music and feel will be grounded in its original roots.
Hailing from Los Angeles, Simple Citizens are one of the few modern-day live hip-hop groups who’s instrumental make-up and on stage energy more closely resemble a 60′s soul/jazz combo than anything else in the contemporary hip-hop scene. With a small musical arsenal and just one MC, the Citizens are able to incorporate not just hip-hop, but heavy doses of soul and jazz that resonate seamlessly with lyrics creating a fresh sound that holds true to the early 90′s hip-hop aesthetic.
Jungle Fire sound digs deep and resurrects classic latin funk music with an approach that is both authentic and highly explosive! Comprised of musicians from the Los Angeles region, JUNGLE FIRE pulls from only those who are dedicated to preserving, protecting and progressing LA’s funk and latin scenes. Such members have performed with Breakestra, Ozomatli, La Santa Cecilia, Simple Citizens, Celia Cruz, Orgone, The Greyboy Allstars and the list goes on. Keep a watchful eye out as JUNGLE FIRE continues to scorch dance floors and heat up clubs across the nation!
