Live Music / VIBEAT
About the band: VIBEAT cleverly flows between genres, and pushes the boundaries of jazz, beats, and synth-music to create sounds all their own. Their release “VIBEATEP” is the culmination of influences and experiences brought on by Terence Blanchard, Stephen Scott, Weather Report, Now Vs Now, Mark Guiliana’s BEATMUSIC, and Steps Ahead. Original music written by Nathan Skinner (malletSTATION), and Sean Devivo (Sax) use familiar musical building blocks from Jazz, R&B, Trap, and Electronica to create a whole new world of grooves, melody, and mind-bending soundscapes that are sure to take you on a trip.
Sculpture Garden Silent Disco
Get out of your head and into your amazing body with the help of Be You Disco! This guided silent disco combines music, dance, and mindfulness to have you celebrating your body and feeling your aliveness. Be You Disco was created as an outlet for connection and authentic self-expression, with their intention being to bridge the gap among people and create a sense of wellbeing.
