Four headliner bands, equally brilliant in their own style, will amp up the afternoon and early evening on our professional concert stage.

Stephane Wrembel Band
The neo-gypsy jazz band led by French-born guitarist Stephane Wrembel was heralded by its inclusion in New York's GlobalFest as one of the most innovative international groups performing today. Classically trained, Stephane worked with Django Reinhardt, with with whom he learned, embraced, and advanced "Gypsy Jazz" and its lightning guitar style.

Mike Griot and Friends
This all-star blues band was assembled especially for this Festival by international touring artist and musical director Mike Griot, a native of Orange. It features some of the New York metro area's top blues artists who reveal the deep memory of the blues combined with the blazing sounds of the Blues today.

Wedeya<br />Wedeya
Fast rising Wedeya mesmerizes with its high energy reggae sounds that bring audiences to their feet and leaves them smiling. Top reggae artists with whom they have worked include Culture, Burning Spear, The Meditations, Leroy Sibbles of the Heptones, Tanya Stephens, Christopher Martin, Romain Virgo and a host of others.

Universal Soul Band
Moona Luna Leroy Owens and the Universal Soul Band wow crowds throughout the region with their breathtaking renditions of Motown gold -- the music that forever changed America and the world. Get ready to dance!
