Houston DJs Gracie Chavez, Navó, OG Bobby Trill and Principe Q are spearheading a new digital Latin sound around Texas with Bombón, the ultimate tropical dance party. Their selections are accented by percussionist Ilya Janos and mistress of ceremonies La Comadre Mel.

Established in 2010 (along with Antonio Alucema), Bombón continues to introduce booming tropical beats all the way from South and Central America to the Dirty Dirty and back. From cumbia, moombahton, tropical bass, guarachero, 3ball, baile funk, salsa, mambo to the latest in emerging Latin sounds, Bombón DJs make you want to put on your zapatos and dance el puro pinche party ‘til they hurt!

The Ponderers began as a musical challenge for two Chicago music enthusiasts who were once given the task of providing an all day music set composed solely of female-fronted artists for a women’s empowerment festival. Taking on the challenge and then some, members Stephanie Manriquez (Fanita Banana) and Sandra Trevino (Angelfuk) have pushed forward in their writing and collective DJ sets (and radio hosting in Sandra’s case) to feature female-fronted & Latin-alternative music. The Ponderers are passionate about artists who they feel, at some point in time whether through lyrics, a video or a beat, have supported them as artists and people.

Chicago‘s sporadic & nomadic Cumbia & Tropical Bass gathering, since 2011.

Brothers Gow in Chicago at Emporium Arcade Bar in Wicker Park

June 17, 2016 at Emporium Arcade Bar in Chicago.


Harmonica Dunn & Emporium Arcade Bar Present:


Friday, June 17th, 2016
at Emporium Arcade Bar (Wicker Park)
Doors at 9PM • Music at 10PM • 21+
Reserve Tickets: http://ticketf.ly/1N8LPiA

About Brothers Gow:
Borrowing from a massive cache of influences, Brothers Gow, based in San Diego, CA, by way of Flagstaff, AZ, is a funk-rock-improv quintet that relies on thoughtful lyrics, deep grooves and improvisational tact to keep each show sounding fresh and unique. The band’s energetic stage presence combined with powerful vocal harmonies, complex arrangements, ripping guitar solos and the band’s awe-inspiring lighting makes each show memorable. Relentlessly touring and committed to their sound, they have criss-crossed most of the western United States since 2007, playing landmark venues such as Nectar’s in Seattle, Orpheum Theater in Flagstaff, Rialto Theater in Tucson, The Top Hat in Missoula, Brick and Mortar in San Francisco and House of Blues in San Diego.

Brothers Gow, composed of Alex Gow Bastine (keys, vox), Carson Church (bass), Kyle Merrill (guitar, vox, trumpet), Ethan Wade (guitar, vox), and Nathan Walsh-Haines (drums, vox) serendipitously landed in the beautiful coastal city of Ocean Beach in San Diego where they were finally able to hone their true style & sound using the ocean as their inspiration. Their lighting designer and additional band member, Matt Collier (MC6), brings his own artistic nuance to add to the overall live experience. With a three tier intelligent lighting rig and advanced software, Collier uses texture and movement to create a truly dynamic and engaging light show.

Brothers Gow is poised and ready to make huge strides in 2014. They’ll be embarking on an extensive Summer Tour and are releasing their 4th album, Reflections, due out soon. The new album features a mix of uptempo ballads, proggy instrumentals, angelic harmonies and introspective lyrics meant to inspire loving what you do and doing what you love. Also to mention is the establishment of the Brothers Gow Foundation for Music Education and the opening of Ocean Beach Rock and Roll – an all ages school for the Ocean Beach community to be able to learn a multitude of instruments at any level!

Be on the lookout for this genre bending, eye dilating, groove modulating quintet that lives for the road and breathes for the show.
