G. Love & Special Sauce
G. Love & Special Sauce
Philadelphia-based G. Love & Special Sauce is known for sloppy blues that fuses the sound of folk and classic R&B with elements of modern hip-hop.

The band’s most recent album, Fixin’ to Die, unites singer/songwriter Garrett Dutton – or G. Love – with The Avett Brothers to create a collection of rearranged traditionals, a classic cover and a handful of new originals that strip G. Love’s music to its Americana-roots core.

Scott Avett says, “G. Love really opened a door that let me see another side of music that was really clever, good vibe, great melodically, great lyrically… It baffles Seth and I that the roots world has not just taken G. Love and catapulted him into the sky; he’s a king of that world and they don’t even know it.”
Zap and The Naturals
Zap & The Naturals is a Brooklyn-based band influenced by deep bass grooves, island rhythms, reggae, soulful vocal harmonies and urban expressions. Led by singer-songwriter Andrew Zapanta, along with Sarah Wood (backing vocals/melodica/percs), Joel Pixley-Fink (bass), Dan Griffith (lead guitar) and Ry Pilla (drums/percs), the group continues to explore genre-crossing diversity along its musical journey. Their debut EP “Ebb or Flow” received high acclaim in the NYC indie music scene and the band has been featured at many popular NYC area events. Highlights of 2011-2012 include The 3rd Annual Montauk Music Festival in Montauk, the 7th Annual Adventures NYC Festival by Backpacker Magazine in The Naumburg Bandshell in Central Park.

In 2011, Andrew recorded a cover of Bob Marley’s “One Love” which was an instant viral success with over 100,000 views. Sarah has traveled the world with professional classical music ensembles and Ry has shared the stage with the likes of G-Love, Wyclef Jean and Jack Johnson.
