mATEO MONK

The music of Mateo Monk is beyond classification. It is a synthesis of multiple genres of world roots music, heavily informed by the spontaneous freedom of psychedelic jam culture. Mateo performs solo on the guitar, flute, synthesizer, and melodica, utilizing a looper pedal to create fully-textured rhythms, adorned with virtuosic melodic musings, all seamlessly woven into the song form in real time. It’s a modern spin on the iconic idea of the “one man band”, executed by a one-of-a-kind artist with deep emotional sensibility and dazzling instrumental finesse. Mateo has been performing for 23 years and has worked with many influential artists, including Thievery Corporation, Junior Marvin of Bob Marley and The Wailers, and members of the legendary reggae group Culture.

Mateo has been practicing meditation since 1992 and has been a devotee of Divine Mother Amma Sri Karunamayi since 1999. He recently visited her ashram in Andhra Pradesh, India, attending a three week meditation retreat in her presence, and just returned from a 10 day Maha Shivashakti Yagnam (fire ceremony) with her as well in Atlanta.

Joey and the Waitress Band

Our goal is to create timeless music. Our first recording is just a small sampling of what is to come. More than a group of musicians, we are friends. Each performance is a celebration. It is not enough to say that we enjoy what we do; it is an honor and a privilege to perform together.
Since forming the band, we have been driven by a sense of destiny and a kind of calm inspired by the knowledge that what we are doing matters. This group of special individuals has evolved from a simple prayer asking for guidance – one prayed on many occasions – now fully answered.
We feel blessed for the life changing experiences we have had. Our hope is that you continue to follow us on our special journey. We look forward to sharing many more songs with you.

 The Plate Scrapers

The Plate Scrapers

Crafted musicianship and creative chemistry on stage guarantees that each performance is a new experience. More recently, the band has been known to take advantage of the sound shaping tools of modern music to enhance their traditional folk instruments whether it results in a screaming dobro or a sonically-warping banjo. Fans and critics alike agree that things are moving in a positive direction for The Plate Scrapers.

The Plate Scrapers

The Plate Scrapers originated in 2014 in western Maryland the way any good bluegrass band does: from a bunch of fellers pickin’ around in a circle, surrounded by delicious plates of food, strong libations, and good friends. The traditional spirit of The Plate Scrapers is still innately intact nearly half a decade later, though they have evolved into far more than your average bluegrass band. Through diverse backgrounds and influences ranging from jazz, to hard rock, to funk, the band has taken their music to an eclectic new level.

Having self-released two live albums and two studio albums, toured in fifteen states, and performed in direct support for Keller Williams, Larry Keel, We Banjo 3, and more, they have made themselves a household name in their local region of the mid-atlantic. Their music has been featured on nationwide radio stations such as WAMU Bluegrass Country, WDVX Blue Plate Special and local magazine Appalachian Jamwich.

 The Kind Thieves

The Kind Thieves

The Kind Thieves

Hailing from the heart of Appalachia, The Kind Thieves are a musical tour de force that is far greater than simply the sum of its parts. With members originating from all over the Southern West Virginia region, the Thieves pull influences from musical genres spanning from classic rock to funk to bluegrass, wrapped up in a jam-band bow that promises a 100% original and mind-blowing live experience every time they perform. But jam-band isn’t even a box you can put the Thieves into, with heart-wrenching melodies, jaw-dropping harmonies, and songwriting capability far beyond their years, there is no way of knowing which direction they’ll go next, and no musical stone they’ll leave unturned. The Kind Thieves debut record ‘Many A Thief’ was released in 2017 and continues to win new fans with its unforgettable hooks and sweet storytelling sensibilities.

David Martin - Sound healer Yogi 

David combines his skill set as a yogi, healer and sound worker to create an immersive experience in yoga and sound meditation designed to release students from subconscious patterning, habitual tendencies and past programming and conditioning. Not only is the gong a sonic experience, it also facilitates a deep, ultrasonic massage of the entire body on a cellular level that allows us to experience wholeness and even altered or heightened states of consciousness. We become hyper aware of our entire being and it’s many layers as it is in a constant state of vibration. This truly unique experience of mantra and the gong is deeply relaxing and potently healing, guaranteed to offer a profound sense of harmony and stillness. It is David’s mission to share this uniquely powerful experience of wholeness with as many people and communities as he can while he is on this Earth.

The gongs used are Planetary and Ancient Nepalese Singing Bowl Gongs.

VOYAGER a.k.a. Kyle O. Street

VOYAGER a.k.a. Kyle O. Street

Originally a local artist from Northern Virginia, VOYAGER left Earth to travel the galaxy in search of psychedelic visions and has spent the past decade exploring nothing but Art itself.

“Art is one of the last frontiers of novelty; the few remaining realms you can go to discover something new. Art can be a portal to a places you wouldn’t normally find in your own world. I create art to transform an environment and offer viewers a playground for the senses; possibly even an opportunity to glimpse something they’ve never seen before. My art holds a space for your mind to interpret abstract shapes and geometric patterns meant to change right before your eyes!”

VOYAGER last appeared in the Washington Capital Area for Catharsis on The Mall 2017. As an event volunteer and member of the Art Team, he helped create the live-stage and offered a fluorescent mural painting performance as everyone danced through the night. This year at FlowJam, VOYAGER will resume work on the “Manifest FlowJam Farm” Mural and unveil at least one new fluorescent mural to be displayed with a color-changing lightshow!

We are finally at a place where we can give back with each purchase and I have to say this is my proudest moment as a human being.
