Fleeting Trance
Fleeting Trance
The creation of bay-area songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist, Manasseh (Ma’NASA) Bernal, Fleeting Trance is a project defying classification, category, and genre. It is instead a musical collage of approaches, influences, and instrumentation varying from song to song. “I like to think we have multiple styles without blending them all into one song,” says Bernal. “I don’t think we are a one-trick-pony. The longer people listen, the more they will understand what connects us to the various musical forms and styles that we are putting out there. I want to put opposites together because life is such a horrible contradiction.” Fitting, as the name Fleeting Trance reflects the juxtaposition of various concepts. “This project is my goal to marry music styles I love that aren’t supposed to be found together in the same room.”

Stymie and the Pimp Jones Love Orchestra: A Bay Area bred, eleven-piece tribe of thingamajigs lead by singer/songwriter Sean “Stymie” Sharp. Stymie grew up in Hollywood off Sunset and started the group in San Francisco in 1996. The first lineup featured Joe “Mojo” Powell, a featured harmonizer and hype man who still elevates the band today. The band soon proved itself to be stupendous live, voted Best Funk Band in SF Weekly. While it has enjoyed the honor of opening gigs for the likes of Earth, Wind, & Fire, Fred Wesley, Digital Underground, and Billy Preston over the years, Stymie and the PJLO has been packing ‘em in with its own headlining shows for over a decade and a half - and still counting.
