1) Musicians: “The Kindred” comprised of Jon Brumbaugh and Shaughn Kennedy, recently entered the music scene in Madison, Wisconsin. The two met a few short months ago, and instantly began creating music with one premise: It must be true, it must be felt. With influences ranging from soul, rock, R&B, blues, and spiritual music, Jon and Shaughn have a history of deep roots in different musical styles. This makes them a unique combination of talent and passion, that you will surely feel.
2) Dancers: The University of Wisconsin-Madison’s Yoga, Empowerment & Service Plus (YES+) dancers, headed by a talented choreographer and dancer, William Aquite, has danced on the stage and on the street, inside buildings and in nature with the goal of uplifting society through service, yoga, & meditation! These talented dancers have raised awareness and funds for community service activities through their choreography and dance talent. In April 2011, they staged “flashmobs” all over Madison with the goal of raising awareness for a fundraiser for earthquake relief. They raised over $2500 for one of the YES+ dancers to bring the funds to Peru where she is helping to rebuild houses destroyed by 2009’s earthquake.
