Moona Luna
Saturday, January 19, 11 am

A passionate second project of New York-based songwriter Sandra Velasquez and her critically acclaimed Latin band Pistolera, Moona Luna's music is a rich and flavorful platter of bold and spicy music performed in both English and Spanish; an invitation to sample the tastes and flavors of the world from a child's sensibility -- of experiencing the familiar in a way that is suddenly unfamiliar and new. The concert celebrates the release of a new bilingual CD Vamos, Let's Go!" For more information, visit www.moonalunamusic.com, and watch the band perform "Brinca, Jump."

Mista Cookie Jar and the Chocolate Chips

With songs and music bound together by the perennial concept of love, Mista Cookie Jar blends hip-hop, reggae and folk-rock together for lively shows filled with interactive music and awesome visual style.
