Manwell Goodspeed - (Set time: 8:00 PM)
Manwell Goodspeed
Primarily focused as an indie rock trio, Manwell Goodspeed infuses the long lost raw tone of grunge with rolling melodies that captivate to generate their signature sound. Based out of Williamsburg, the band draws on the energy of the Brooklyn scene, yet the sound they deliver is neither governed nor contained by the milieu from which it arises. While Manwell maintains its own sonic identity, one may note their musical influences shining in the details; a core of solid rock vis-à-vis the Chili Peppers along with an exploratory approach to songwriting with all the boldness of The Flaming Lips. As does Nirvana, the trio produces songs that convey an emotional depth yet all the while keep it interesting and hip in the vein of Beck.
Project K-Paz - (Set time: 7:00 PM)
Project K-Paz
Based in New York City, Project K-Paz is a musical collective specializing in Spontaneous Music: 100% pure improvisation. We create music in the moment, which is the sum of the musicians present. Four musicians from around the world gathered with the goal of creating something special and unique. A mixture of genres, styles and musical cultures that erupts into this representation of art at its best. By living the art that is Spontaneous Music, our possibilities are endless, and thus, only the purest, most emotionally driven music is created every time we play.

We know improvisation is not anything new in music. But COMPLETE improvisation, and true spontaneity, are not easy concepts to embrace. We like to maintain the freshness of discovery constant in our music, so we never play the same thing twice, all of our music lives only in the moment, and will never happen again. In that way, everyone of our performances is unique, and at the same time completely different from the last one and familiar in that you can expect to receive 100% from each member of the band. We let our emotions and feelings ride on our music, and put it all out there...we don't know that it will always work out, but only one thing is certain, we are able to connect with our audiences in a way no other band can, because the audience is literally part of the music being made, and everyone present contributes to building this organism, this entity that is Spontaneous Music.

Our discography includes "Nothing to Something", a CD and DVD recorded at Avatar Studios in NYC, and we have the mission of spreading the wonder of Spontaneous Music around the world, having playedin places such as Boston, New York, Los Angeles, Paris, Barcelona, Milan, Helsinki, Kyoto, Tokyo, Port of Gustavia, São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, among others.
