Skip the Needle is a supergroup featuring bassist/vocalist Vicki Randle, guitarist/vocalists Katie Cash and Shelley Doty, and drummer/vocalist Kofy Brown, whose members bring a wealth of musical experience to the table, including Randle’s nearly 20-year run as the percussionist/vocalist with Branford Marsalis band on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, and her more recent extended stint as a backing vocalist in Mavis Staples live band. Skip the Needle delivers impressionable original tunes deeply rooted in social justice with tight harmonies, shredding guitar solos, and searing lead vocals, like “Sly Stone, Jimi Hendrix, Chrissie Hynde, and Chaka Khan” jamming together.



Flaunting vicious flows, and a player-like persona, STONI can hold her own with some of rap’s top-tier artists. Born and raised in Oakland, the California native grew up with a passion for poetry and writing. Already making a lasting impression with her unofficial release “Kirk Franklin Freestyle” with friend Rayana Jay, Stoni is gearing up to take the Bay Area and the whole industry by storm.



Bitesize is a Pinay DJ from the Bay Area. Starting at 17 years old Bitesize owned a pair of turntables and a mixer, which began her -turntablism and mixing- DJ journey. Bitesize is a two-time DJ battle champion in the local Bay Area scene. She rocks numerous venues in the Bay from SF to SJ to LA and even out of state. Her sound is a mixture of new school to old school while adding flavors of all genres you can vibe and dance to with some turntablism tricks and scratches.
