Dylan first made a debut performing on season 8 of NBC’s The Voice. Since then, he has gone on to open for various artists including icons like Molly Ringwald, Phil Wickham, and Howie Day.

Dave Askren / Jeff Benedict
Jazz
Dave has performed with a variety of jazz/latin jazz/instrumental artists, including Bob Moses, Antonio Hart, Delfeayo Marsalis, Hendrik Muerkins, Stuart Hamm, Bruce Arnold, Bobby Shew, "Rhubumba", Sal Cracciolo, Jimmy Branly, Joey DeLeon Jr, David King and Reid Anderson (The Bad Plus), Ben Schacter, Gray Sargent, Kevin Eubanks, Gary Foster, Tony Rizzi's "Wire Choir" with Pete Christlieb; Mike Vax, as well as commercial recording artists including Marilyn McCoo, Latoya Jackson, Linda Hopkins, Little Anthony, The Coasters, The Platters, The Diamonds, The Drifters, The Marvelletes, Brenton Wood, Dato Shake, Kenny Hamber..
Talk about musical pedigree, and one of the names that comes to mind almost immediately is Dave Askren. Previous albums have included a Re: Bill Evans, a guitar trio tribute to the iconic pianist, forays into Latin jazz, Rhubumba and Trio Nuevo +, and appearances in multiple settings such as big band and even a saxophone quartet. While his musical family tree may seem to have begun in the Askren home in Dayton, Ohio, his roots lineage — roots, branches and all — may be traced back through the “Era of Fusion,” and if that sounds as if the epithet suggests roots and branches as broad as jazz-blues, or rhythmn-blues, rock-and-roll, or jazz-rock, it is because Askren grew up in the shade of that enormous ancestral tree. At any given time, he might have been grooving to Tony Williams’ Lifetime, The Crusaders, Mahavishnu, or Chick Corea’s early bands. All of that should now make it easy to guess that Dave Askren can trace his ancestry all the way back to Miles Davis, starting with Miles’ own fusion period – like Bitches Brew or Jack Johnson – soon yielding to the classic 50’s-60’s Davis Quintets, which is what informs the unique, horn-like sound and rich harmony of Askren’s guitar.
It wasn’t always that way, however. The musician in Askren started life as the son of a church organist/piano teacher, who also studied and played clarinet and saxophone. It was at 14 years of age that Askren hung up his reeds and horns, and took his foot off the piano pedal and with guitar in hand, stomped on a different set of pedals. The tipping point, according to Askren folklore, was a couple of small-club concerts: one where George Benson performed and the other was one featuring Pat Martino. However, everything came to fruition when Dave Askren entered Berklee College of Music, Boston — first as a student and later as a teacher. Further, the Boston experience gave Askren the opportunity to tutelage with Charlie Banacos and to be influenced by the guiding Jerry Bergonzi. While at Berklee, he also came under the spell of Rakalam Bob Moses and guitar guru Mick Goodrick. The rest is history of a different sort - where Dave Askren paid his dues with a very different roster of musicians, including LaToya Jackson, Marilyn McCoo, Little Anthony, The Coasters and, of course, his elder soul— brother, Jeff Benedict.

Lynn Cardona
jazz and bossa nova standards
Lynn Cardona, the Los Angeles based vocalist whose pretty, exotic looks and diaphanous, jazz-flavored voice makes it easy to go for the Norah Jones comparisons. Imagine instead Ani Difranco had she grown up on Sarah Vaughan records and hired the Roots for her back-up band.

Drag Bingo Fundraising
BINGO PRIVATE EVENT
LEGENDARY BINGO
legendary-bingo-top
In April of 1998, “LEGENDARY BINGO” served up its first set of balls at Stonewall Gourmet Coffee in West Hollywood as a fundraising event for AIDS Project Los Angeles. A few months later, the evening began to benefit a different charity each week and the event became a “standing room only” sensation.
Now, over 17 years after the very first ball rolled out of the cage, Legendary Bingo has become a staple of the Los Angeles community and beyond, be it via our weekly charity events, private parties in homes, churches, Hollywood premieres and college campuses or being featured on local and national news channels as well as more than 10 reality shows including “Flipping Out,” “Millionaire Matchmaker” and “LA Ink.”
Hosted by Bingo Boy and his rotating roster of fabulous “Drag Queen Bingo Hostesses,” each event and party is a mix of friends, fun, ridiculousness and, more often than not, a good cause. To date, we have raised over 5 million dollars for local and national charities and the arts. One ball at a time.
Legendary Bingo is Los Angeles’ most popular and longest running weekly charity event. In 2008 and 2013 in honor of Legendary Bingo’s tenth and fifteenth anniversaries, the City Of West Hollywood proclaimed a “Legendary Bingo Day” for the entire city.

DOUYE'
Jazz
“Jazz was the first music that I ever heard. It was introduced to me by my Dad who always played jazz around the house. He regularly sat me down and told me to listen closely to the music, that jazz was life.” Her beloved father passed away when she was 11. “The last time I saw him, he was at the hospital, had me driven in, and he told me that he wanted me to promise him something. He wanted me to promise him that I would sing jazz after I became a woman. Years passed, life went on, and I became involved in performing and recording r&b. But when I was completing the second CD in 2013, I kept on thinking about my last conversation with my Dad. It was as if he was reminding me about my promise. I decided that I would see if I had what it took to sing jazz.”
Douye’ has since worked very hard at finding her own place in the jazz world. Rather than doing it halfway or merely copying the great jazz singers of the past, she was determined to study hard, learn a countless number of songs, and sing jazz in her own way. She paid close attention to the reactions of the audience and the musicians when she appeared at jazz jams at the World Stage in Los Angeles. “If I did not sound any good, they would certainly tell me! I gained the courage to give it a real try after getting some confirmation from the jazz crowd that I could do this.”

Leah Ashton
Pop music with Soul and Blues flavor
Hi, I’m Leah. I’m a singer, songwriter, recording artist, and performer who lives in Los Angeles. I started to write an informative biography about myself, but it got a little #boring. Then I began to wonder, “does anyone actually read these things?” In case you are one of the lucky people who does, here are some (short and sweet-ish) things you might like to know:
When I grow up, I’d like to be some combination of Carole King, Etta James, Ella Fitzgerald, Bonnie Raitt, Eva Cassidy, Aretha Franklin, Susan Tedeschi, and Sara Bareilles. I love the music these ladies make and I’d like to think that my music reflects their influence in some way.
I grew up in the Akron area of Ohio. (Go Cavs!)
I studied music at Anderson University in Indiana, and I was signed to the university’s record label, Orangehaus Records. With that label I released a self-titled 5 song EP, and also two singles: my own version of “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas”, and an original song “After the Rain”. You can listen to and purchase that music here

Live Jazz Night

I grew up in Seattle playing saxophone and clarinet and moved to Los Angeles to attend USC in 2008. While at USC I started exploring singing, flute, composition, and songwriting. I also met Andris and Max, and together we formed Moonchild in 2012. I'm so grateful for the people and opportunities I've had here that have helped me grow so much as a musician and a person. I now make a living teaching and trying to be as musical as I can 🙂 I hope we can work together and I hope this site helps you find out more about me and what I love to do.
Thank you,
Amber
