The Pimps of Joytime: Over the course of the past four years, the Pimps of Joytime have evolved into a road tested and audience approved groove machine. They have excited crowds at over 100 club dates and festivals in 2010 and this year’s ongoing “All The Way Live” tour far exceeds the volume of previous years. Amazingly, their stage performance improves each night as the electricity between the band members rises to new heights. This fluidity is not something you can manufacture, it is an authentic and exciting collaboration that is the Pimps of Joytime.
Vokab Company: Vokab Kompany are two MC/singers from San Diego, California. Their new album, VKCE, a collaboration effort with up and coming production/musician duo Crush Effect, has been critically acclaimed and filled a void at the intersection of the hip-hop and EDM worlds. ‘VKCE’ is Hip-hop, it’s electronic, it’s indie - it’s a shout out to the past, and a taste of the future. Vokab Kompany’s Matt Burke describes the experience: “As musicians, it’s an ever evolving world; genres are a thing of the past, so we (VK) were really lucky to have teamed up with producers that pushed the boundaries of our boxes. We got outside our comfort zone, stamped a VK next to CE, and the result was something new entirely.”
DJ Ancona: Ancona aka Romy is a self taught musician making his way through the Hollywood and South Bay club circuit as an electronic music producer and performer. Having only been DJing for one year, Romy has quickly gained recognition amongst club owners and party goers as a reliable source of entertainment. While Romy Ancona does not have a specific genre, he most enjoys mixing various styles of house music but has adapted to put his own spin on the most popular music of today. Having shared Hollywood stages with legendary house names such as DJ Reza of Go Ventures and Mark Lewis of Mixology, Romy has earned credibility amongst Hollywood's top performers. His event resume also includes a sold out MAXIM Magazine New Year's Eve party at the newly renovated Chinese Theatre. For handling his own bookings and promotion, Romy Ancona successfully enhances business by bringing loyal fans as well as gaining new enthusiasts at every show he plays.
