Duwende (Doo-WEN-day), a six-person a cappella band featuring J. Aaron Boykin (Baritone/Tenor), Derrick L. Hicks (Tenor), Abbey Janes (Soprano), Tomas Cruz (Alto/Tenor), Edward Chung (Vocal Percussion), and David Lane (Bass), is best known for their fiercely original, bass- and-beatbox-driven funk/pop style of music. In 2011, Duwende released “Remember: The Music of Michael Jackson”. At the 2011 Sundance Film Festival, Duwende blew Park City away, performing for “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” Fender Lounge, “Park City TV”, and various venues up and down Main Street. www.Duwende.comDuwende @ Facebook

m-pact, hailed “one of the best pop-jazz vocal groups in the world” by the San Francisco Chronicle, features Fletcher Sheridan, Jarrett Johnson, Marco Cassone, Jeff Smith, Morten Kier and Trist Curless, and is respected worldwide as a cutting edge trailblazer in the realm of vocal music. Emerging from an age of auto-tune and overproduction, this Los Angeles-based ensemble has cultivated a new generation of ears hungry for the fresh, raw power of nature’s “first instrument” – the human voice. m-pact.comm-pact @Facebook
