Where spirit and music meet ~ The music of award winning, spiritually inspiring singer-songwriter Ginger Doss ranges from funky tribal drumming to alt rock and from heart warming ballads to earth shaking spiritual anthems. Joining her will be her long time musical cohort Lynda Millard whose amazing vocals and dazzling flute and bass thrill music lovers of all types. When ginger and lynda join their voices and songs, the connection between their souls and the energy they raise is palpable. Together they have a harmonic grace and command of their instruments that can only come from years of playing and singing together. Drum, dance and journey on sparkling waves of musical bliss as they weave their melodic magic with rocking grooves and spine tingling harmonies that have earned them international acclaim.

This showgirl has traveled the world and returned to show you a thing or two! She brings the sexy, the sparkly and the strange to the stage, and we promise, it will get weird.
Chante elastica brown
Zen bodyworker by day and amusement artist and performer by night, Chante, otherwise known as Elastica or Treelady takes her passion of storytelling through her own body to the depths of her hyper active imagination, then back and forth overseas. She trains capoeira (a Brazilian martial art) regularly, where she is nicknamed “Elastica” for her bendy moves, for a while received private instruction for tribal fusion bellydance which has found its way to compliment her endless experiments with acrobatic stylings and studying various flow arts with bodily musicality. When the space and occasion allows she will often appear as her Treelady persona which is an 11 foot living statue/tree-human that visits elementary school auditoriums to talk to kids about tress as well as a living/dancing art installation at high ceilinged 'burner' events. Whatever the performance's final form, it's sure to be uniquely amusing through her captivating blend of costumed movement and theatrics.
