Alyson Calagna
Alyson Calagna
Whether she is curating music at the prestigious Peninsula Chicago's rooftop lounge, Zbar, remixing pop and underground artists or headlining major dance festivals all over the world, Calagna's dancefloor is where faith and fable; gods and goddesses; and discovery and desire meet in a new truthology of sound.

The outernational DJ is the pioneer behind the sound and alias "Omtronica," mixing sexual, sensual and spiritual rhythms with tones of empowerment and ecstasy. From beats of shared consciousness to the tribal ballet of contemporary longings, Calagna's unique blend of organic sound, poetic wisdom and modern pulses combine to bring the listener to the center of their conscience and the heart of the dancefloor.
Gabriel Mervine
Gabriel Mervine
At a time in music where history and originality never seem to go hand in hand, Gabriel Mervine takes steps every time he picks up his trumpet to bring these two closer together. With a musical upbringing, Gabriel has deeply rooted himself in the traditions of Jazz and Classical music while at the same time contributing to the modern music scene. He wishes to leave no stone unturned and no genre unexplored because in his mind, all music has the power to make the artist who he/she is.

Born in Bridgewater, New Jersey, Gabriel began his professional playing career at the age of thirteen years old. By the time he graduated high school he was already looking at making a career out of playing the trumpet. He then went to the Colorado University at Boulder for Jazz Studies, but after one year decided to dedicate his time to becoming a working trumpet player, which would include continuing his studies privately with people such as Bobby Shew, Roger Ingram, and Greg Gisbert just to name a few. Gabriel quickly gained recognition and began performing with people such as Natalie Cole, Christian McBride, Chie Imaizumi, the Ninth and Lincoln Orchestra, Terence Blanchard, Russell Malone, Maceo Parker, Fred Wesley, Steve Lippia, John McNeil, Convergence, Roberta Gambarini, the Motet, and Houston Person while also building a strong freelance career playing everything from Mariachi to Mahler.

Gabriel now resides in Denver, Colorado and keeps a rigorous schedule of local and national performances. He is currently seeking to broaden his musical repertoire with his own groups stretching into more modern original works while simultaneously trying to keep the music which inspired him at such a young age alive and well.
