WYATT - (Set time: 11:00 PM)
WYATT
"Oh, Wyatt. Wyatt is cool. Wyatt is like this guy who has magical powers, but is totally comfortable with it. And also he is a good dresser, and dances amazingly well."

So says a newly indoctrinated fan. WYATT is (also) the new project of celebrated NYC singer/songwriter Maddy Wyatt. What began as the solo effort of Miss Wyatt has morphed into a collaborative adventure with brothers Paul and Alex Wyatt, bassist Zach Lane, and keyboardist Dana Haynes. Since the release of their debut EP last summer, WYATT has toured all over the Southwest, played festivals from SXSW to CMJ, and earned kudos from the likes of NYC's The Deli Magazine, The L.A. Examiner, and TimeOutNewYork, who says "their lack of pretension and simple melodies are reminiscent of Mirah." WYATT aims to make you move your bod and sing along. The songs on this EP are the closest yet they've come. Vive la WYATT!
Double Down - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
Double Down
From the classic lounge stylings of Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin, to fun twists on popular modern hits, Double Down plays the songs you know and love. The band's original style fuses together their fresh, bold talents with a tribute to the songs of yesteryear.

Double Down gives the Rat Pack a swinging update for the new millennium. Their electrifying performance, tight sound and musical expertise allow them to move from hot jump-swing numbers to poignant ballads without missing a beat.

In addition to the old standards, Double Down dives into the songbook of today, bringing a unique twist to contemporary classics. From Billy Joel to Motorhead, from Nirvana to Usher, Double Down brings a classy lounge attitude to anything they get their hands on. Never content to rest on their laurels, Double Down is constantly adding new songs to their repertoire so every show stays fresh and their audience is always entertained.
Ali Blake - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
Ali Blake
An ambitious and melodic singer-songwriter from Chicago, Ali Blake
made her live performance debut on August 29th at The Living Room
with material from her very first LP. With modern blues vocals
influenced by Etta James and a highly distinctive blend of
alternative, country-folk and blues, Ali Blake mixes soulful,
introspective lyrics with intimate guitar-driven hooks to create an
ethereal atmosphere that feels both traditional and poetic.
Khaled Dajani - (Set time: 8:00 PM)
Khaled Dajani
Khaled's music (pronounced Ka-lid) is the definition of East meets West. Khaled seamlessly fuses different musical genres into soulful arrangements and intricate rhythms. This unique style and sound, now dubbed Alternative World Fusion, brings together the music of cultures from the Middle East, the Mediterranean and the Americas.

The latest album, "The Rabbit Hole", proves Alternative World Fusion can be dark, sexy and Rock 'n Roll when it's created by musicians with the right amount of skill and lyrical depth. Khaled Dajani is from the Middle East and moved to the U.S.A. at the age of 16. On his path, he developed a unique approach to guitar playing and a keen sense for different songwriting styles. The result is a creative and uncompromising listening experience.

Khaled is the winner of the Best Male Solo Award at the 2011 Hoboken Music Awards*. "The Rabbit Hole" was also nominated for the Outstanding Album Award at the 2010 Hoboken Music Awards**, and NJ.com named it one of Northern New Jersey's best albums of 2010*** calling it, "...one of the most engaging and eclectic local releases of the year...the intricacy and passion of [Khaled's] guitar transcends language and culture and more than stands on its own...creating a freewheeling mix of love songs and instrumentals that truly earns the title 'world music.'"

Welcome to Alternative World Fusion.
