TACUMA BRADLEY Tacuma Bradley, Brooklyn bred saxophonist/composer, is no stranger to diversity and the fusion of cultures.

Nowadays, Tacuma fuses Jazz, Hip-Hop, and other music of the African Diaspora, to create what he likes to call "sophisticated groove music". For this performance, Tacuma will be using a Loop Machine to conjure up rhythms and spirits of the past, present, and future.

JON BRAMAN Jon Braman started out writing rap songs about love and politics and playing them on a baritone ukulele he found in the trash. Then he taught his songs to a band and played them in DC and NYC at venues like the Shrine, Rockwood, Gramercy Theatre, the Knitting Factory, and for years cohosted the monthly superhero-music-collective-showcase-jam known as the Melting Pot at Pianos. He's been the resident songwriter for a weekly arts and culture show on WBAI, and he has recorded three albums and a couple music videos. For the Plunge he's got a new concept called "drum machine", which involves no machines and no drummers but will involve rap songs about love and politics and maybe bicycles.
