The music of Katie Cash harkens to a time when rock n roll inspired revolution. In the manner of legends, she handles her guitar with an unparalleled command, embodying the music with every fiber or her being — hair flung as staccato punctuations to the heart she wears on her sleeve. She owns her vocal delivery, swinging you between high & low in an array of lustful richness and provocative rhythms.
While leading, composing, producing and performing in her solo outfit, Cash also shares lead vocal and guitar duties in Oakland based bands Year of the Fist, & Skip the Needle, gliding between punk rock and rock n soul with graceful authenticity her fans have come to love.
Nikki Borodi is a Bay Area-based acro-phenom, musician, songwriter, filmmaker, educator and activist storyteller. Borodi dazzles audiences by combining her unique vocal stylings and acrobatic talents during her signature "Acrolele" performances where she sings and plays ukulele while doing acrobatics. “Acrolele” is an astounding demonstration of human potentiality that transcends perceived impossibility. Her message can be felt through every show she gives-we have the power to transform fears into flight and to live as our most authentic selves. Her work inspires others to embrace diverse identities and dive into spaces of vulnerable exploration. Some of Nikki's recent performances include TedxBerkeley, SF Moma, Google, The Oakland Museum, Oakland Parks and Recreation, Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, SF Pride Main Stage, SF City Hall, The Contemporary Jewish Museum, The New Parish, Maker's Faire and Lucas Films. Borodi is honored to be an alumni artist in residence at Montalvo Art Center and a current creative in residence at The Battery SF.
