The special opening guest, Jay Cruz, is one of the fastest growing Latino artists in the industry. He is a producer, rapper, singer, dancer and entrepreneur. He is the youngest and most successful Latino artist to come out of Sacramento, CA, obtaining many awards, TV Interviews and radio interviews. He has established his own recording studio, recording music in English and Spanish in different genres such as Hip-Hop, Pop, R&B and House. His musical and business talent along with his musical diversity make Jay Cruz one of the most rounded upcoming artists in this generation.
The B-Side Players are a 9-piece band that honors the international cross-pollination that has always made music the universal language. They use any beat that catches their ear, regardless of geography or genre, to create a compelling, horn-driven, polyrhythmic groove. The B-Side Players have been laying down their own Latin funk since they came together in 1994. Their incendiary live shows have defined them as local favorites with 10 San Diego Music awards. Meanwhile, their albums showcase a band with restless musical intelligence, effortlessly blending genres to fashion their own forward looking, Latin flavored soul music.
Free food (limited quantity), giveaways, and a car show will also be part of the festivities.
