Bernie Worrell

Bernie Worrell was a child prodigy who began studying piano at the tender age of three, performed his first Classical Concert at age four, wrote his first concerto at age eight, and performed with the Washington Symphony Orchestra at ten. 

Simply stated, Bernie Worrell is a Master Keyboardist, a founding member of original Parliament/Funkadelic and keyboard wizard whose liquid lines deftly steered P-Funk straight to the Rock n' Roll Hall of Fame.

In the past year, Bernie released three albums. In February, he dropped his first solo piano platter, "Elevation (The Upper Air)" via the M.O.D. Technologies label. "Melodestra (Gotta Groove Records)", a 12" vinyl EP of songs performed on the melodica, a hybrid of a wind instrument and keyboard.  And, in addition to touring with his hot new group the Bernie Worrell Orchestra, the maestro also tracked their second album, "Prequel". That's more work than most younger men can muster, let alone one who has been playing, producing and world-touring for most of his seven decades.

Nona Hendryx

From her beginnings with Patti LaBelle & The Bluebelles (the sweethearts of The Apollo Theater); to LaBelle (a trio made up of Patti LaBelle and Sarah Dash) — the groundbreaking rock funk band of the 70s; followed by a stunning solo career; and then inducted into The Rhythm & Blues Foundations’ Hall of Fame in 1999, Nona Hendryx has always been on the cutting edge of music.  

Her songs are edgy, provocative, political and full of double entendres and empowering messages that enabled the trio to break the traditional girl group mold. Their stage show was the forerunner of the epic productions we expect today and they were the only contemporary black group to take their ‘Wear Something Silver’ show to New York’s prestigious Metropolitan Opera House and to major theatres and Opera Houses across the world. Labelle racked up three gold albums and a number 1 worldwide hit with, “Lady Marmalade (Voulez Vous Coucher Avec Moi Ce Soir?).”

Steve Kimock

A master of improvisation, Steve Kimock has been inspiring music fans with his transcendent guitar speak, voiced through electric, acoustic, lap and pedal steel guitars. While one can say that his genre is rock, no one niche has ever confined him. Instead, through the years, he’s explored various sounds and styles based on what’s moved him at the time, whether it’s blues or jazz; funk or folk; psychedelic or boogie; gypsy or prog-rock; traditional American or world fusion.
