Live art and dance performance as well as performances by:

Orchester Prazevica (Gypsy Jazz)



Resistance is futile, this is Turbo Folk! High energy dance music drawing on the tradition of Eastern European Czardas and Gypsy Swing, but widely influenced by jazz and blues. Under the direction of Slovak born and raised guitarist and singer Tomáš Drgoň, this band delivers an honest, authentic and entertaining mix of folklore, jazz and dance music suitable for everything from upscale clubs to dives, jazz festivals to mosh pits, arts receptions to underground galleries. Orchester Praževica has performed at several prestigious stages including the Atlas Performing Arts Center in Washington DC, the Patterson Theater in Baltimore and the Drom in NYC. They have shared the stage with the Hungarian Gypsy folk supergroup Parno Graszt, the Romanian Gypsy brass legends Fanfare Ciocarlia, Boban and Marko Markovic Orchestra, and other greats on the “not so mainstream” music scene.

Theory of Everything (funk rock)


“Theory” is a new Baltimore band featuring bassist Lyle John Saunders, who performed at previous FAM events, and members: Aleka FarOut on vocals, Brian Shapiro on trumpet,  Andre Grant on trombone Will Crowther on guitar and Jason Cohen on drums.

Phil Celeste (R&B)


Phill Celeste practices musical alchemy, melting down a number of musical elements into a sound that is eclectic and varied, drawing from disco, funk, house, r&b, soul and jazz. Hailing from Baltimore, Maryland, his special blend of sound has been described as dark, sexy and abstract: a unique and modern twist on sounds both classic and strange.

Lindsey Golden (Dance Performance)

Our Gatherings offer an opportunity to think, meditate or even pray in your own way, while riding a rhythm wave to awaken a spiritual connection. Drum church is not a “drum circle“, but a guided, communal drumming experience. All we ask is for you to bring your sense of wonderment and a drum. Chairs and drums will be made available, on a first come/first serve basis.
