Brown Bag Brass Band is one of Central Florida's hottest live acts and have been dubbed, by themselves, "Orlando's official party band." What started as a pickup band covering a last minute Mardi Gras gig, soon began delivering a horn-driven tour de force, serving the region and beyond. Since then, the b4 have firmly established itself an integral part of the live scene, characterized as loud, fast, high and generally, "Good Time Party Music."

Passionate and colorful at the same time, Betsayda Machado is one of the most representative singers in Venezuelan music today.
