About DJ Venus Flyytrap:

Venus Flyytrap is a true anomaly. Based in Grand Rapids, mi, this creative director turned DJ draws inspiration from the past with psychedelic sounds and the future by way of her elusive, vibrant visuals. with a mantra of ‘make something out of nothing’, venus Flyytrap will make you see, hear and most of all — groove.

About Jes Kramer: 

Jes Kramer is a one-woman band from Grand Rapids, MI. Using a combination of keyboards, guitar, vocals, and a loop pedal, she weaves her songs layer by layer into something incredibly personal, yet comforting. WYCE named her Outstanding Female Performer of the Year at the 2012 Jammies.

About Raydale Shamaine:

Raydale Shamaine is a Grand Rapids based musician and motivational speaker.

About August:

August is a five piece soul-pop band rooted in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Since their 2018 debut, August hit the ground running, performing at many sought-after venues and festivals across West Michigan. In June of 2019, the band released their debut full-length album, Bloom, drawing inspiration from many areas of music: soul, funk, rock, pop, jazz, etc. Their lyrics tell stories of the intimate human experience and are musically presented in a dynamic and approachable fashion. In a review of the album, Local Spins writes, “Through a backdrop of expansive instrumentals [August] gives a comforting message of hope, a sentiment that everything will be OK.” The album earned them two nominations for the WYCE Jammy Awards in February of 2020. In the summer of 2020, the band released their first EP, Chaos & Comfort. The EP found its way to being in the “Hot Top Five” in the month of August of 2020 on 88.1, WYCE radio. The band released their sophomore album, Through the Looking Glass, in September of 2022 hugely inspired by what felt like a reversed reality. “Place to Land”, recorded at River City Studios and mastered by Bailey Budnik, will release on 11/18/2022.
