We're stoked to have Yonas at ShamrockFest '14!! 

At 25, Yonas already built-up quite the list of accomplishments. In 2010, Yonas won a Billboard songwriting award for his song “Banga”. Additionally, his hit single “Sky Kidz” was featured on MTVu as well as Fuse TV with no label or marketing assistance. Yonas had begun to resonate directly with his audience, as he released his debut album The Proven Theory in 2011 setting the foundation for something special. His single, "Fall Back" has been in a major motion picture and he's just getting started. Yonas and his ability to empower and uplift anyone that listens to his music has developed an Artist-to-Fan connection that is undeniable.

White Ford Bronco

White Ford Bronco
Link: 
DC's beloved all-90s party band, White Ford Bronco, metes out sizzling slabs of rock; decadently dulcet pop ditties; and heaping, hot bowlfuls of "OMG-I-Freakin'-Love-This-Song!!!!!!" all lovingly crammed down the throats of the teeming, carousing masses who gather to have their ravenous appetites for the songs of two decades ago (yeah, it's been that long) oh-so-thoroughly satisfied.
 
Long a mere dream kicking around in the overactive imaginations of its founders, White Ford Bronco officially came into being in the Spring of 2008.  Since then the five member ensemble has been sparking bouts of flannel-laden, slap-bracelet-snapping, pog-playing, big-butt-loving nostalgia across the Washington, D.C. area.  If you're longing for the days when Danny Tanner could solve everything with a hug and presidential scandals only involved ruining a marriage, allow us to take you on a musical journey to that magical last decade of the 20th century.  Whatever flavor -- be it Alternative, Rock, Pop, R&B, Hip Hop, or Country -- if it's 90s, WFB plays it.
 
White Ford Bronco is influenced by the critical parental advice of Danny Tanner and the food at the Max. And the Peach Pit. The cuckolding of 90210 and Melrose Place. The red one pieces and the authority of David Hasselhoff that looks over the Los Angeles County Beaches. The Reebok Pump. Carlton's dance moves. The sound of a slammer pounding down on a pile of pogs. The snap of a slap bracelet. George Herbert Walker Bush. William Jefferson Clinton. And at times Ross Perot, Al Gore, Bob Dole and Dan Quayle. Wayne's World. Hypercolor T- Shirts. The ever so adorable Jonathan Taylor Thomas and Tim Allen's two other kids. Scratch that, JTT and the Olson Twins. And of course the same thing we try to do everyday Pinky...try to take over the world.

Redline Addiction

Redline Addiction
Link: 
Redline Addiction have caused a tidal wave of talk among industry critics up and down the East Coast. It's no coincidence that On Tap Magazine, a well-known DC based publication, dubbed the group as a “buzzing band.” Don't be surprised if Redline Addiction becomes the next radio superstar in the next 12 months!
 
Hailing from the DC area, Redline Addiction is an alternative rock band whose musical influences range from early 90s grunge to modern hard rock to folk to reggae.  Known for its hard-hitting energetic live shows at venues like the 9:30 Club and Fillmore Silver Spring, Redline Addiction plays every show like its last.

 

In December 2012, Redline Addiction released its new studio album, entitled A to B.  This double CD highlights each individual member’s unique balance of talent and style, and truly showcases the band's songwriting skills and range.  Reviews for this record have been stellar: one local publication described the record as a "rock 'n' roll buffet"; another described it as a "catchy musical journey" that will "make your ears happy."  Since signing to Counterpoints Records in 2007, Redline Addiction has released three other studio albums, all of which have received rave reviews.”=

 

But most importantly, remember to bring your game face and dancing shoes to the show ...

Unicycle Lady

Unicycle Lady
Link: 

The performing artist, who prefers to go by Unicycle Lady, has been riding the unicycle for more than 37 years and used only her unicycle as her sole mode of transportation until the age of 35.  When she was 16, she had a dream of dancing on a unicycle but it wasn’t until 10 years later when she read The Complete Book of Unicycling by Jack Wiley that she was determined to work towards that dream. She spent countless of hours learning about the different skills that could be performed on a unicycle. By listening to music, envisioning movements to those like a figure, then try to do perform the skills to the  rhythm of music the unicyclist was truly creating an art form.

 

After attending her first unicycle convention in 1992, there she gained recognition for her unique style and grace getting on the cover of  the magazine, One Wheel. Finally, realizing that dreams do come true, the “Unicycle Lady” was born.
