I've heard that this Taylor McFerrin (Bobby's son) is quite binoculars. Can anyone confirm? I'm otherwise engaged this evening so hopefully some of y'all can go investigate:

10:30 Renegades of Punk
Renegades of Punk is an amazing all vocal, political, hardcore band.
Not4Prophet spits conscious, political, messages that make you think.
He is accompanied by volectric bass player Kid Lucky who provides
driving volectric bass lines and hard vocal percussion. I bet you
didn't think you would ever mosh to an all vocal band!

11:00 Taylor Mcferrin and The Cell Theory
Taylor Mcferrin brings this new band to the forefront of live trance
like hip hop grooves. Taylor's beatboxing is smooth and in the pocket
while the band makes the transitions so slick your head will still be
nodding after the fact!

11: 30 Baba and Yako
Baba is a human beatboxer and didgeridoo player and Yako is an
electric bass player and human beatboxer. Together they make music
that is beyond your normal urban, hip hop, dance tracks. This is that
next level!


The After Hours 5th Element Jam Session
After hours, all star jam sessions, with some of today's hottest human
beatboxers joined with some of NYC's hottest musicians. This is for
the late night hang. Come see what happens when the lights go down and
the die hard crowd stays behind. You'll tell your children and your
grandchildren the magic of that night. We guarantee it!

Regular readers/listeners should be familiar with our friends Baba and Yako of Open Thought, who are also active in this activity.
