Joseph Soul

Accomplished Nightclub DJ
Los Angeles, CA

Considered one of the most versatile music aficionados to come out of Hawaii, Joseph Soul has been commanding crowds for well over 15 years. Highly touted as a nightclub DJ, his expertise spans more than the distance between two turntables. With his accomplishments as a producer, engineer, and songwriter widely recognized, it is no surprise that he currently earns a living doing just that. A seven-time Na Hoku Hanohano award nominee (Hawai’s, Grammy sponsored music awards), Joseph Soul is no stranger to the Hawai`i music scene. With experience penning songs for Nesian N.I.N.E and Dani Waring, producing the smash hits, “Take You Higher” from Positive Motion and “Tell Me” by Tenelle, and mastering Maoli’s 2010 album “Rock Easy”, it should come as no shock that he wrote, produced, engineered, and mixed his first album almost entirely on his own (DJ Audissey - Overdue). He collaborates with both up-and-coming artists, as well as, seasoned veterans and is constantly searching for new talent to help break into the island music scene. As his alias, DJ Audissey, Joe was highly sought after as a nightclub DJ in Hawaii`i, with victories in Mai Tai’s Hot Island DJ Spin-Off, as well as, the 7-11 / Dave & Busters DJ Battle in 2010. After a stint in Las Vegas, where he was a nightclub DJ at venues such as Tryst and VooDoo Lounge, he now resides in California where he is currently working on an EP.

Alycia Cooper: Headlining Comedian

Internationally Known Comic, Alycia Cooper is here
Los Angeles, CA

Alycia Cooper was born with a mic in her hand. It was a medical miracle and a sign that her mother either had an iron deficiency or desperately wanted Alycia to be a performer. The latter was true and it didn’t take long for Alycia’s funny bone to take shape. And like every great comedienne, by the age of 5, she had perfected knock- knock jokes and imitating drunk family members. This love of laughter was Alycia’s beacon to the stage and after graduating college, she pursued her destiny.

Positive Vibrations abound with a beat to keep you on your dancing feet, while Pato delivers a message that is food for the mind and soul. Many have considered his charismatic performance as live theatre where no show is alike and audience members become participants in the experience. Pato dialogues with the crowd on a range of topics including current day events and spiritual freedom while keeping the vibes upbeat and fun! The direction of the concert is totally based on the feedback Pato receives from the audience as there is no fixed set list. Many have said that the positivity generated from the stage has changed their lives forever. Sometimes Pato invites his fans to join him in a prayer circle after the show, where some have cried while sharing their stories of contemplated suicide, isolation after losing a loved one, struggles with substance abuse and how their personal connection with Pato has given them the strength to “Stay Positive”

Lauren Belly Dance

Belly Dance Performer and Instructor

I took my first belly dancing class 13 years ago and fell in love. This led me to create my company, Lauren Jalbert Belly Dance, to promote the art of belly dancing and encourage others to find similar enjoyment in expressing themselves through dance. You will find me teaching belly dance classes and performing throughout Michigan, Ohio and Canada. I am the only Bellydance instructor to have taught at Lifetime Fitness and LA Fitness. I taught at Nafas Fitness in Royal Oak for 5 years as well as hosting guest instructor workshops. My first performance troupe was the Shimmy Shakers. A very unique troupe, we were brought together under one instructor. She taught us everything she knew and left us quickly. The ones who stayed stood strong, tall and confident. Together we created the Shimmy Shakers. We represented all ages from 5 to 50. We formed our own studio, beginning to practice, choreograph and start a family. We performed throughout the dance community, having so much fun doing it. 4 years later I am continuing my passion for dance. I participated in the 2007 Michigan Renaissance Festival, where they held the first belly dance competition judged by the belly dance legends Aida Al-Adawi, Princess Madiha and Aziza Ammar. I was successful in winning first place, which only further ignited my focus on belly dancing.
