Ace Da Vinci – Live Performance
Raised in the southside of Chicago, Ace da Vinci draws his inspiration from soul, funk, rock and hip-hop all at the same time. His lyricism is witty and thought provoking, and his production is refreshing with retro samples and head-nodding drums and percussion. Ace takes his heart and shares it every time he hits the stage for a live performance, opening up for acts like Three 6 Mafia, Bone Thugz, and sharing stages with Common and Kanye West.
As the creator of the SmartMouf art collective, Ace da Vinci pushes to make a positive impact on the Chicago scene, in hopes that it translates to a wave that will hit the entire world. For the entire year of 2019, be expecting new music and developments from Ace every month!

Ja’Bowen- Live tap performance
Ja’Bowen is a performance and visual artist based out of Chicago, Il.
Since the age of 6, Ja’Bowen has been learning and performing the arts/disciplines of dance, acting, music, writing, and design.
He has been most publicly noted for being a founding and principal member of the world renowned tap dance company M.A.D.D. Rhythms, since it’s creation in 2001.
As a tap dancer, he has performed at various venues across the United States, and for a wide array of events, including; halftime for the Chicago bulls, featured roles in major motion picture films, national and international television spots and many more.
Currently, Ja’Bowen has redirected his focus back to being an interdisciplinary artist.
That new focus is coupled with a new intention for his works to be a vital instrument in helping to elevate the collective consciousness, by entertaining, educating and/or inspiring audiences worldwide,
with his art.
As Ja’Bowen takes his many years of training and experience and expands beyond just tap dance, and back into other art forms, he is poised to parlay his already successful career as a tap dancer into even bigger success as an interdisciplinary artist.
