Rodney Block is a classically trained trumpeter performing a unique blend of traditional jazz, gospel, hip-hop, Bebop, funk and soul. This is smooth jazz at its finest, with trumpet leading the way.

Pura Coco is a New York-born, Northwest Arkansas-based singer/songwriter. She takes both her Latin culture and her upbringing in the south to create her unique sound. Consistently working on her craft, she uses an alternative R&B genre to convey a multitude of emotions and further connect with her listeners. She released her first EP Leaves in 2019 and recently opened for Korean American indie-pop band Japanese Breakfast at The Momentary in 2022.
