Avi Wisnia (www.aviwisnia.com) is pulling together a great show gathered from his band's recent tour as well as some current SXSW energy that we are lucky to snare. Just back from a tour of Brazil, award-winning songwriter, Avi Wisnia, combines jazz and pop with a little bit of bossa nova flavor mixed in. He has been described as Ben Folds meets Norah Jones, if they had a lovechild in Brazil. He will perform with Kim Garey - drums, and Toru Takiguchi - guitar.
Shawn Fogel of Golden Bloom will be opening the evening with a few of his well-crafted songs. (www.goldenbloom.net) Visiting for SXSW, Golden Bloom is Shawn’s soaring vocals, shimmering guitar hooks, whizzing keyboards and twinkling sounds. The New York native, is currently residing in New Jersey. Fogel is a one-man music-making machine.
Little Lo (www.littlelomusic.com) will play a short acoustic set. They are a bunch of sizzling Austin indie-rockers playing acoustic for a change. Players are: Ryan James McGill, Bailey Glover, Ian Rogers, Stephanie Groudle, Josh Mead, Hudini, and George Pappas. Should be interesting jam!
Avi will perform after Shawn and Little Lo.
