Come join us for a very special Travers Eve Party featuring one-man-band / looping sensation, Zach Deptuy, along with very special guest opener, Banooba, whose return we have been waiting for for about 4 years.

Zach Deputy has made his mark thus far as a touring powerhouse. As a boy, the music of his Puerto Rican, Cruzan and Irish heritage was cooked up in the South Carolina heat. The Calypso rhythms and folk songs of St. Croix competed with the R&B / soul of pioneers like James Brown and Ray Charles for space on the family stereo. As Deputy honed his craft, a unique hybrid of these influences emerged, ultimately creating the signature Zach Deputy sound. To bring this sound to the stage, the big, impossibly upbeat South Carolinian with the infectious smile puts on a solo show– enhanced by looping technology– that is essentially a one man dance party offering up what he calls “Island-infused, Drum ‘n’ Bass, Gospel-Ninja-Soul” to the enthusiastic crowds of dancers who flock to clubs from coast-to-coast. It is these late night dance parties— more than 250 per year– that have made Zach Deputy one of the hottest up-and-coming performers on the camping festival circuit and “jam band” scene.

Taking cues from all of their influences – including funk, jazz, reggae and rock – opening act, Banooba is the latest hybrid to successfully incorporate all of these elements into their own signature sound. Having been compared to a range of bands, including Sublime, The Allman Brothers, Blind Melon, Umphrey’s Mcgee, Incubus, Steely Dan and Average White Band, people’s description of their music varies depending on who you ask. Guitarist Kevin Torres contemplates Banooba’s crossover appeal, stating: “We just write the tunes and let them go whatever direction they want to go in. They’re all rock tunes with hints of these genres in them.”

Over the years, Banooba has developed and become known for their high-energy live performance which is guaranteed to keep you moving all night long. No matter what type of music you are into, you are going to have a good time at a Banooba show. “These guys groove like it’s their last day on earth, with irresistible songs and wicked musicianship” says Dan Brown of Good Times Magazine.
