Jelani Kwesi
Jelani Kwesi
Skilled producer, engineer, and artist, Jelani Kwesi, from Wheaton, Maryland provides a wide range of genres and styles to keep his audience entertained and on their toes. Appealing to nearly every demographic, Jelani Kwesi brings feel-good, upbeat, beachy vibes before turning everything around with some punk rage tracks. Then he slows things down with softer, alternative, emotion-evoking sounds. Despite the wide variety in his music, you can easily hear his distinctive 80’s-inspired influence in every song.
Prince George’s county own, $HO! One of the most talented artists and performers in the DMV. Bringing high-energy melodies with creative hooks and verses, $HO takes audiences to another atmosphere. Once you take part in the $HO experience, you’ll be guaranteed to want more.
Ric Lucero
Ric Lucero is a producer, guitarist and singer/songwriter from MD who creates what he calls “synth soul”. Ric first picked up the guitar 12 years ago and has played in several bands and with different artists around the DMV since then. He recently released his 5 track EP, ‘The Void’, blending smooth synths, dreamy vocals and hypnotizing guitars.
RocknRolla Slim
What if you mixed the guitar chops of Jimi Hendrix, the swagger of blaxploitation music, with the self sufficient work ethic and mentality of independent hip hop greats like Logic , Master P and Nipsey Hussle? You'd have Rocknrolla Slim.

For the past decade Slim has been behind the scenes in the DMV music community producing beats, working in studios, and pioneering the ability to play live guitar over music in DC's biggest clubs(And DJing at the same time). Since 2017 he has embarked on the journey of becoming a solo recording artist in order to bring his vision to the world. His music might not always have a distinct message, but it will always have a feeling or emotion attached meant for you to bear with him. In the long run, his journey is not only rooted in monetary success, but bringing his sound to all music. After all, music is the greatest connector of people.
