Pages: 1 2 replies

We're pleased to announce the preliminary entertainment lineup for Mod Miami: A Swankadelic Weekend Experience For Modern Minds - Where Modernism Meets Mod (with a touch of tiki too!).

We've put together an eclectic mix of both some names and faces (and 'tails' too!) you may be VERY familiar with, along with some that you undoubtedly will be in the future.

Perhaps the most recognizable of these may be FRED SCHNEIDER, frontman of the B-52's, along with his latest group 'THE SUPERIONS', who will be appearing live, backed by the sensational URSULA 1000. URSULA 1000' will on hand for TWO nights, contributing his unmistakable groove to the event's festivities. Fred and 'THE SUPERIONS' will also be availing themselves for a 'meet and greet' in an intimate setting for those interested in pressing the flesh.

Some other familiar names include the sensational 'MARINA THE FIRE EATING MERMAID (Medusirina)', the sensational surf sounds of 'THE INTOXICATORS!' and spacey simian antics of 'THE DISASTERNAUTS', who made their world debut when they were discovered in the Tiki Garden at the Jetsetter Lounge on one of the Hukilau Intergalactic Grand Finales some years back (going on later to earn a place in the 'Hipster's Hall of Fame').

Another 'Hipster's Hall of Famer' on the bill is our friend 'JIMMY CAVALLO & HIS HOUSEROCKERS', playing his unique mix of jump blues, r&b, honky-tonk, swing/pop standards, and good old rock-and-roll! Jimmy wrote and performed the title cut in Alan Freed's 1955 classic film 'ROCK! ROCK! ROCK!', and was the first hite r&b act to perform at NYC's Apollo Theater.

Atlanta's 'THE FORTY FIVES' will be on hand laying down some 1960's style garage tracks, as will NYC DJ CHARLES GASKINS who will be spinning his vinyl ocllection of garage, funk, soul, r & b, and more!

'O SOM DO JAZZ' will be contributing some authentic Brazilian bossa nova/samba grooves, with 'STOLEN IDOLS' contributing some exotica and space age pop to the bill!

Local boys 'THE GOLD DUST LOUNGE' (named after he famed and now defunct jazz club in the Miami MiMo District) play some fine sounding original instrumentals.

'THE MODERNAIRES' will be adding their mix of ska, reggae, and soul to the weekend's action too.

Another face you'll see is 'ANNA COPA CABANNA', shaking her stuff and doing her unique thing throughout the course of the weekend!

Incredibly, there'll be even MORE artists added to the bill in the coming days, so stay tuned for word on even more performers and special surprises. Better still, visit the website at http://modmiami.com and join the mailing list for exclusive event updates!
