Wahh!' in India is a popular word that expresses 'Great Inner Joy and Appreciation'... Trailblazers of a unique and multiform sound, ‘WAHH!’ is rooted in India’s rich traditional musical culture and enveloped in an artful weave of Jazz, Rock and Funk. The highlights of WAHH’’s many recent performances include playing to a fully packed theatre of enthusiastic fans at the Tropical Heatwave Festival where WAHH! received a standing ovation from the ‘standing room only’ crowd, performing for Tampa Bay’s prestigious ‘Gasparilla Music Festival, the ICC Fundraiser Concert with an audience of over 500 people and The WMNF Radio Benefit Concert at the Hideaway in St. Pete, Fl where the venue had to turn people away because they were over-capacity. Reflecting prominent, traditional Indian influences and strong Western influences, WAHH! World Fusion Band also brings in subtle influences from the Middle East and Africa. WAHH!’s masterful fusing of musical genres and artful combination of traditional and modern musical expression appeals to wide and diverse audiences with a distinct Global Appeal.

Brief Event Description: 
Kevin is the best singer songwriter you may never have heard. His newest CD, Countryside, was described as "something like a cross between Brad Paisley and Pat Metheny, but that doesn't quite hit the mark. There are so many well-executed elements to this recording, the description I finally came up with is - simply something you'll love if you're a fan of originality, melody, surprising lyrics and beautiful instrumentation, beautifully played." Kevin's music ranges from blues, to R&B, to country and whether he's playing as a solo artist or with a band he's an artist you won't want to miss.

Brief Event Description: 
Potluck @ 6pm; Film @ 7pm By focusing on immediate profit and ignoring millennia of experience in agronomy, agroindustry is responsible for the unprecedented erosion of soils now occurring around the world. Add climate change and dwindling natural resources to the picture, and it would appear that even societies in the Global North are no longer safe from famines. Voices of Transition is a film which is optimistic but clear-sighted. It makes clear that these current and impending crises are, in fact, positive challenges!
