Beyond Borders Fundraiser helps to raise funding so that local performer, Avi Chertok, can join Performers Without Borders on their 2015 India trip. Part of the proceeds also goes toward materials for the children to learn and perform with. Thank you for being a part of this contribution by showing that love is Beyond Borders!

PWB is a non-for profit organization that sends performers to India, Nicaragua and Sierra Leone to teach performing arts to vulnerable children in countries of high child poverty. They work towards giving vulnerable children the opportunity to explore their potential. Through teaching performance skills, an individual’s learning, creativity and team working skills are developed. PWB volunteers help to build confidence, develop empowerment and overcome social barriers.

DIXON’S VIOLIN- The world's premier digital violinist, Dixon's life mission is to inspire people! And he has done so across North America, captivating audiences at intimate shows, and wowing crowds of thousands, including Burning Man, giving two TED talks/performances, plus radio and TV.

DJ CARLA STARLA - Live Vocals sprinkled on top of Phat House Beats. Driving uplifting and Soul freeing. The goal every time is to get you on the dance floor moving that body. She sings stories of faith, honesty, pride, and love. We all have our daily struggles and grinds. She gives her audiences a chance to hit that reset button. Refreshed and feel ready to bring it on. Music is a healer. House Music is a way. Miss Starla is the

ZAK & WHAT ARMY? can be summarized as: an inter & inner-galactic effort to gently but loudly announce to humanity that our species has hence entered an age of sheer recreation, exploration, irreverence, absurdity & bliss. Through comedy, cacophony & rhyme, Zakery Winchester & the ever growing Army of Magical Turtles use silliness, sincerity & trickery to attempt to translate the untranslatable with an entirely unique method of performance art dubbed Nonsensourcery.

LWKY- Lowkey is a dance music production duo from Chicago, IL. Derek Outson and Zack Harper combine electronic music production techniques with live instrumentation both on the stage and in the studio. Our dedication to the live recording process creates a unique blend of Blues, Funk, and Soul undertones all played out in the context of dance floor ready Glitch-Hop, Dubstep, and Electro-House. For the past 2 years we have been developing a unique style of sampling that gives our sound an original spark and smoothly gels together all the many elements that compose the Lowkey soundscape.

FREE LOUPANGA- Instrumental, soul-driven groove in its purest form. Erupting from the syncopated minds of Woo Park's very own Luke Sangerman, Brian Sanborn, Christian Zwit, and Bass Master Donoven Brown, this quartet takes Booty-Grooves back to the deep end. Free Loupanga is the ideal union of psychedelic swagger and raw talent. Over a decade of touring with national act Kelly Clarkson has fervently cemented this quartet into an indestructible pocket, and bold improvisational leaps by all players are met by near-telepathic response from the others. Their music will make your ass shake like a Jello plate on the San Andreas Fault. All for one and one for all, let's get together and FREE LOUPANGA!
