Safe Friday everyone! We bring you three incredible musicians today – you’ll laugh, you’ll dance and you’ll sing along (and if you’re in the EU time zones, you won’t fall asleep at the keyboard)! Join us at The Dirty Grind IAC to say bye to the week and hello to the (hopefully last) hottest weekend of summer with great music, amazing entertainment and stunning exhibitions 🙂
Gweeb delivers an incredible show with each of his performances: incessant laughter isn’t unheard of at his gigs, and not much is taken seriously, aside from the delicious, rich sound of one boy and his guitar!
12pm Benski Korhonen
Benski Korhonen is a singer/songwriter/piano and ukulele player who specializes in Ragtime versions of rock and pop songs. He can take a song by The Offspring or Nirvana and make is sound like it was composed by Scott Joplin. He can take a familiar Beatles tune like “Martha My Dear” and make it sound like an early 20th century obscurity that has only recently been unearthed by a studious musicologist. Benski has also written some really interesting and fun originals!
1pm Mandala Bee
Mandala, a Rio de Janeiro Brazilian, loves to entertain her audience. She is a guitarist and singer and her vocal style is Bossa Nova; however, it also includes Blues, Rock, Pop and of course Romantic Songs. She is multi-lingual in her songs: Portuguese, Spanish, French and English. When you hear a tune or song you like, she loves you to sing together with her!
