Ultimate Fantastic

Ultimate Fantastic

 

Ultimate Fantastic ​is an unparalleled combination of intelligent lyricism and spine melting R&B vocals upon a foundation of meticulously produced original bass music. Initially joining forces for a Burning Man project, this team of West Coast musicians quickly won the affection of any audience who caught their show, which features an infectious array of supreme talent, friendship, humor and creative prowess on stage.

 

Ultimate Fantastic is comprised of Julian Fritz (Dropical) on production, Deja Solis on seductive, soulful and intriguing vocals, and Pharroh and Wink delivering intricately laced word-play and emcee vocal precision. All four members are seasoned artists who have toured extensively world wide and been involved with a versatile line-up of influential musical groups including Albino, Hamsa Lila, Vagabundos, and Pega5u5 to name a few.

 

 

Steeped in the West Coast, the group draws from a variety of influences including underground hip-hop, festival sub- cultures, electronic dance music and roots and soul tradition; and synthesizes their original artistry into ardent and unbridled musical expression and storytelling. Their sound is at once tasteful and classic as it is futuristic and imaginative. Their debut album Super Human, was released by Jumpsuit Records in 2017.

Calle Placer

Calle Placer

FRIDAY & SATURDAY

Calle Placer is a multidimensional phenomenon of Latin fusion founded in East L.A. playing  jazz, salsa, funk, reggae and rock.  Their neighborhood of Pleasant Ave. offered them the freedom to jam anytime, day or night.

Vocalist Melody Betancort says, “One day it might be salsa, one day it might be funk, another day might be reggae or jazz.   We fuse musical styles and experiences to create a pleasant sound, a pleasant feeling, a pleasant time.  Wherever we go we carry that essence of Pleasant Ave with us – listening to the mariachis rehearse during the day as the birds sing along with them.  It’s a street where we can rehearse and the neighbors are pleasant because its known that musicians live here.”

Drums: Miquiztli
Bass: Rafi Pena
Acoustic/Electric Guitar: Johnny Garcia

Keith Secola

Keith Secola

Native American

THURSDAY & FRIDAY

 

“…blues, rock, swing, folk, country, pop, Latin and Native influences into a politically charged tapestry leavened with Secola’s sly wit.” – Native Peoples Magazine

 

Keith Secola is an icon and ambassador of Native music. He is one of the most influential artists in the field today. Rising from the grassroots of North America, he is a songwriter of the people. Critics have dubbed him as the Native versions of both Neil Young and Bruce Springsteen.

 

 

NDN Kars (Indian cars), his most popular song is considered the contemporary Native American anthem, achieving legendary status and earning him a well deserved cult following. It has been the number one requested song on tribal radio since the 1992. In 2011, he joined the ranks of Jimmy Hendrix, Hank Williams, Crystal Gale, and Richie Valens, and was inducted into the Native Music Hall of Fame.

 

Born in 1957 in Cook, Minnesota, Secola is affiliated with the Anishinabe tribe. He graduated from Mesabi Community College with a degree in Public Service in 1979, and completed a BA in American Indian Studies at the University of Minnesota in 1982. He is married and has two children.

 

 

Secola is an accomplished artist, garnering awards and accolades as a musician, a singer, a songwriter, a composer and a producer. He is highly skilled with the guitar, flute, mandolin, banjo, harmonica, and piano, and has played in venues from the halls of the Chicago Urban Indian Centre, to the walls of the bottom of the Grand Canyon. He has also performed at the Olympic Games in Atlanta 1996 and Salt Lake City 2002, and toured Europe several times. Among his numerous appearances he has graced the stages of the Rockslide Festival in Denmark, the Grand Opening Gala of the Smithsonian Museum of the American Indian, The Kennedy Center and the SXSW in Austin, TX, and is a staple at the Grassroots Festival in Upstate New York, North Carolina and Florida.

 

 

A seven-time Native American Music Award winner, Secola has earned NAMMYs not only for his music, but also his abilities as a producer, to include The Best Linguistic Recording for producing Anishinabemoin (2007). A well respected musician, he has worked with music legends such as Mickey Hart of the Grateful Dead. Secola has also teamed with academics like author Dr. Tom Venum of the Smithsonian Folklife Institute, collaborating on the CD, American Warriors: Songs for Indian Veterans, and with elders such as Karen Drift, a speaker of Anishenabemoin.
