Javier Mendoza Presents Hobo Cane: "A hobo is a transient and migrant worker. I've moved from place to place all my life, and I was raised among different cultures and languages. I think my songs are influenced and enriched by that diversity. I want to help destroy the stereotype of any music. My mother's last name is 'Cañas', which means 'Canes' in Spanish. So that's me... HOBO CANE.”
The Dorians are a four-member band based in Carbondale, Illinois, specializing in dance music from the Celtic traditions of Ireland and Scotland, and songs from Ireland, Scotland, England, and North America.
Led by Walter and Wagner Caldas – charismatic twin brothers from Rio de Janiero, the Brazilian 2wins pull aspects from pop, rock, funk, fusion, hip hop and Latin and weave them into catchy renditions of crowd favorites.
The FBBB takes classic New Orleans brass tunes and gives them a twist, in the style of Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Rebirth and Bonerama. But don’t be surprised if you also hear some Motown, Southern rock, Memphis soul, Chicago blues and St. Louis R&B in the mix.
