Our Host for the Evening: Comedian Tina Allen Gallo!
Bio: Tina’s comedy covers a wide array – from dating, family, kids, skiing, being a teacher, growing up Catholic in today’s world, and getting older. She has been entertaining audiences throughout the bay area with her quick wit and cynicism. You can relate to her experiences, but don’t be fooled, she looks like she has a soft side but it’s not easily found.
Live performances for the evening will consist of:
Bird and the War
Bio: SoleJive is a 7 piece band that is as diverse musically, as it is ethnically. Such diversity is both representative of hometown SJ, as well as testament to how music transcends difference and finds common relation. Musically, by blending elements of Jazz, Ska, Hip Hop, & Funk, the group weaves in and out of genres believing that “there is only good music, and bad music, with the former being confined by labels.” Introducing to you, SoleJive.
Tamali'i Polynesian Dance Group
Bio: Tamali'i is a professional Polynesian dance group from Hayward, CA originally under the direction of Yolanda Taufa'sau-Vincent, but recently handed over to her eldest daughter Elise Taufa'asau. They teach, perpetuate and respect the Polynesian culture through dance and music. The different types of dancing they teach and perform include Hula, Tahitian, Samoan and Maori. They have competed in numerous dance and music competitions including the San Jose Tahiti Fete and have performed at festivals, weddings, and birthdays including the San Francisco Aloha Festival.
Bio: Amnesia Tribal is a belly dance troupe co-directed by Amanda Gray and Venesia Menary. Having studied and performed tribal fusion belly dance together for over 5 years, Amnesia presents a graceful style that is entrancing. Exploring and expanding off a base of American Tribal Style vocabulary, Amnesia weaves performances that, while mostly improvisational, are flowing and beautiful. Each performance is carefully customized to suit the ambience of the venue. Amnesia crafts sets that can range from lively and infectiously raucous to sultry and captivating.
