The Ballroom Thieves are a three-piece folk ensemble that formed at Stonehill College featuring Martin Earley (guitar), Devin Mauch (drums), and Calin Peters (cello). The trio combines acoustic styles and blends folk conventions with modern hymnals and delta blues grit. The Thieves are consistently evolving and experimenting with their sound, whether that be through Mauch’s unique style of drumming or Peters transforming her classical instrument for a rock context. The band credits their travels and time on the road as the foundation of their current work. Standout appearances include Boston Calling in 2015 and various shows alongside acts like The Lone Bellow, Houndmouth, and Dispatch.
Alisa Amador writes and arranges songs on guitar and ukulele, although her roots lie in Latin music. With a voice likened to Joni Mitchell, Norah Jones, and Laura Marling, this one-woman band is sure to please. Amador is currently gearing up to record her first EP later this year.
Miyagi and The Kids is ZUMIX’s advanced rock ensemble led by teaching artist and ZUMIX alum Ramsel Gonzalez. The lineup features Angelina Botticelli (voice, keys, drums), Mario Jarjour (voice, drums), Nathan Tran-Trihn (guitar), Juan Gutierrez (bass), and Randy Lara (guitar). Each member brings his or her unique taste to rock music as the group experiments with covers from artists like Mac Demarco, The 1975, and Arctic Monkeys.

When & Where
Founded in 1991 in response to the worst year of violence in Boston’s history, ZUMIX offers award-winning programs in songwriting, performance, radio, audio technology, and theater for youth ages 7-18. With the changing needs of our community, we are now operating out of a 9,000 sq-foot renovated firehouse in East Boston. Each year we serve 500 youth in our after-school and summer programs, 550 youth through in-school partnerships, and reach more than 10,000 additional youth and adults through workshops, community events, and outdoor concerts. In 2011 our Executive Director and one of our teens traveled to the White House to accept the National Arts and Humanities Youth Programs Award from First Lady Michelle Obama.
