Heems

Punjabi American rapper, founder of Greedhead Music, and native New Yorker Himanshu "Heems" Suri launched his solo career while a member of the alternative hip-hop group Das Racist. In 2012 under the name Heems, he released two solo mixtapes, Nehru Jackets and Wild Water Kingdom. After Das Racist split in late 2012, Heems headed to Bombay, India and began work on his official debut solo effort. The album was released in 2015 and coincided with an exhibition of the rapper's artwork at the Aicon Gallery in New York City. Both the LP and the exhibition shared the same title, Eat Pray Thug.

Steve Hunt, an instructor in the Piano Department, presents his electronic, high-energy, fusion jazz trio with alumni Ervin Dhimo on bass and Steve Michaud on drums. They will perform original music as well as some classic fusion covers, drawing upon the creative forces of each member to take the music and improvisations in new, spontaneous directions. The bass and keyboards share roles in playing melodies, bass, and chordal structures, and this gives the impression that there are more than just three musicians on stage. Each performance with this group is totally unique in the sounds, textures, colors, and direction of the music.
