Sophia Santos, a native Bostonian, moved to New York City two years ago in September before the pandemic and doesn't plan on leaving any time soon. Sophia grew up in a very musical and artistic household and so although her training growing up was primarily based in ballet and modern, she was hungry to explore other styles, as well as singing, at a professional level. It wasn't until she arrived in Manhattan that she leaped into street and latin styles full throttle. She currently dances with the Latin Connection Dance company and is excited to continue growing as a performer.

Suzi is an ambitious and driven artist, with an excellent work ethic and an exceptional ability to laugh at herself. BFA Point Park University. Thank you to family, the world's dearest friends and teachers, Janet for the opportunity, and everyone else who has extended support along the way. suziweisberg.com @suzi_weisberg

Tash Kouri (they/them) is a snowboard performance artist, dog dad and airbrush bodypainter living in Brooklyn, NY.
As a former professional living statue, fire hula hoop dancer and founder of circus-dance-company, The Gyronauts, Tash's unique aesthetic celebrates festival culture, psychedelic glamour and the grotesque maximalism of the Bushwick Glitterati. They enjoy gender-bending, genre-blending, rhinestones, and drama. Tash also plays guitar for strangers on the internet.
This Oakland-based cabaret rock band is making their debut in NYC. Copyslut makes music filled with sex-magic and catharsis.
