Yakibato Get Down Party
It is the intention to get booties movin’ and people groovin’.
The bedroom in which Frank Cervantes grew up was a breeding ground for musical creativity. Frank and his friends would get together to jam, craft songs, and experiment in recording.
Several bands developed; Just Like Me, The Once Was, The Nice Guys. Within all of these groups Frank was giving the opportunity to experiment with different ways to develop songs, layer instruments, and design arrangements.
Eventually Frank grew out of the bedroom, and along with his friends they took their music into the cities that surround South Jersey. Frank played his first Philly show at the ripe age of 18. Since he has played all over the country on all kinds of stages.
Currently Frank is involved in an electronic collaboration with DJ Golden Spiral and Max Swan called The City Music Project.
He also performs as a solo artist, and has recently released a solo record titled "Forgotten Summer."

In 2010, Sarah Kane took the chance of a lifetime and left her job as a union worker, making $1,200 per week, to pursue her dream in life: writing and performing music. After much hard work, Sarah Kane is now a full-time musician in the city of Philadelphia where she sings for EBE entertainment agency (ebetalent.com) and is a regular entertainer and piano player at Jolly’s piano bar in center city Philadelphia. She is also a professional makeup artist and fine artist, specializing in portraiture. Sarah’s vocal capabilities range from the tender Norah Jones to the robust Aretha Franklin. Sarah Kane’s greatest musical influences spring from the likes of Lenny Kravitz, Madonna, Billy Joel, Steely Dan, Sheryl Crow, James Brown, Carol King and Bonnie Raitt. Her music focuses on life issues from a non-judgmental standpoint, and her lyrics possess a unique vulnerability combined with an inner strength that sets Sarah apart from most artists today. When it comes to her music, Sarah stresses, “It is not my goal to judge, but rather to promote empathy, understanding, and hope within my music.”
A singer/songwriter whose haunting, wizened voice and worldly compositions belie his tender age, Jordan Hull was born in 1989 and has studied folk and rock music luminaries practically ever since. Today, the boy who was caught transfixed by Elvis on the TV has become a student of music inspired more by the folk tradition. In fact, a listen to his debut album finds him seemingly picking up the torch from artists many, many years his senior. That esteemed group would have to include the legend Jordan's most readily compared to, a singer-songwriter who released his self-titled debut some four decades earlier: Bob Dylan. The analogy is apt—philosophizing troubadours with finger-picked guitar passages and strong harmonica skills are scarce these days. When the notes first hit your ears, the initial impression is often something like, "Where the heck did this guy come from?" As the verses build, though, surprise turns to familiarity, as old songs can seem new again, and vice versa. Judging from the insightful lyrics and intuitive melodies on his freshman outing, Jordan's sophomore release should prove just as effective in reconciling the many persistent, peculiar dualities of this young performer's music—the strange with the familiar, the disciplined with the effortless, the old with the new.
