Joe Davis & The Poetic Diaspora
Journeying through the sonically diverse realms of old school and new school hip hop, R&B, funk, and soul, Joe Davis & The Poetic Diaspora seamlessly blend melodic harmonies, smooth instrumentation, and raw, poetic energy to tell stories of struggle, resilience, and celebration. Formed in the heart of the Twin Cities, Minnesota, the collective is dedicated to crafting vibrant soundscapes around honest narratives that reflect their community’s sacred humanity. Each song is an ancestral echo, a battle cry calling for freedom, an unending dance for justice and joy, welcoming all of the diaspora home.

DJ Mickey Breeze
McKinley Maxwell West aka DJ Mickey Breeze isn’t your average DJ. He’s a producer, which many can claim to be too but how many of them can play 5 different instruments? Including the piano, Mickey Breeze can play the drums, trumpet, cello and violin. Aside from his musical talents, Mickey’s taste in music is also wired a little different. Most DJs nowadays enjoy spinning the hottest songs out right now, whether it be Drake, Calvin Harris, AfroJack orYoung Thug but Mickey rathers a little old school Marvin Gaye or maybe some Bootsy Collins. Also, just to mention, DJ Mickey Breeze is a national spelling bee champion.
