Special Highlight: Ugly Sweater Contest

Zuber carries the tropical moon in his pocket and a mischievous spirit from Bali on his shoulder. By way of music, he plays in the blurred lines between Jazz, RnB, Soul and Hip-Hop. His originals touch on subjects of the human condition, such as love, being broke, rebellion, seasons changing, kinship, grief, celebration, the ecology, and at least one song about Pokémon.
His favourite thing about winter is recording season with his band HOT POT.
Frederika Ionescu:
Frederika Ionescu is a New York based vocalist and composer having found her footing originally in British Colombia, Canada. Currently in her first year of graduate studies at The New School, she brings her original music through the worlds of RnB, Jazz, Soul and Funk. Home for the holidays, she hopes to bring in a mix of anyone willing to have fun and play whatever music they want to celebrate the end of another year!
Their favourite thing about winter is spending time with family and relaxing.
Sean Duhaime:
Sean Duhaime is a guitarist and session musician. He has been performing as a bandleader, collaborator, and sideman with numerous bands and musicians for over 10 years. He had studied and went to masterclasses with musicians such as Vic Juris, Ben Monder, Oz Noy, John Geggie, Mark Ferguson and Jonathan Kreisberg. On March 21st, 2020, Sean released his latest EP entitled “Opportunity” on the website Bandcamp which also has four original tracks, including a single released in 2019, ‘I Can’t Dance’.
