- Mister G is a former indie rocker turned “kid-friendly bilingual rock star” and one of the leading figures in the children’s music world. The Summerstage Kids concerts are part of Mister G’s national CD release tour for his third bilingual album, Los Animales. Los Animales is a unique blend of salsa, Latin jazz, and Tejano, and features some of the top names in Latin music, including multiple GRAMMY and Latin GRAMMY winning artists. Mister G is the winner of a Parents’ Choice Gold Award and was named one of the “Best Live Acts for Kids and Families.”
- Soul Street Dance is a dynamic street dance company. Their technical and artistic skills, stage presence and wit allow them to push the performance envelope to an amazing standard of excellence. Although they are called a “Dance Company,” Soul Street performers are actors, athletes (with uncanny strength), and lately, songwriters and musicians too.
- DJ Asho is a Cuban cultural ambassador and innovative musician. He was among a generation of Black youth who identified with Hip Hop as a form of musical resistance, and has translated that into a unique brand of Afro-Cuban musicology that provides a new and exciting experience with each show. A musical ride with DJ Asho is pure alchemy; just the right dose of heady musicology and straight up fun to feed the mind and heal the soul.
