Jeff Holland is a multi-ethnic percussion instructor who uses his travels and experiences to create "Our Musical Journey Around the World" for the participants in his residencies and a variety of other programs. Through more than twenty years of presentation, these programs have proven to reduce stress in the body, improve focus in the mind, and create connections in your community. Music is the universal language, and rhythm is the most primitive element of music. Everything that makes up our bodies and constructs our world uses rhythm and pattern. As a performing musician, Jeff realized very early the positive affects that rhythm has on his audience. He has worked with many corporations and businesses to increase employee camaraderie and decrease worker burn-out. Jeff began teaching and facilitating in the early 1990s, sharing what he learned with everyone he could. He became a ﬁrst-call Artist In Residence around the turn of the century working with more than 50,000 students each year. Since then, his experiences have been introduced all over the world from Africa to the Caribbean, South America, and Southeast Asia. The knowledge from his traditional teachers, the techniques of classical training and exponential team-building all come together to
"Motivate People With The Rhythms of Life." You can ﬁnd out more about Jeff and the many branches of his business at www.DRUM4WORK.com, www.OURWORLDFESTIVAL.com, or www.DRUM234.com. [email protected] or (864) 430-6930
With his music being born in the Carolina's, JJ Dae has quickly started making his mark on any person that hears his music. As a Singer/Songwriter/Musician he has the ability to cross into so many genres in a single song that has been called “a breath of fresh air”. JJ Dae’s' singing ability and arrangement of music has been compared to newer artists such as Miguel and Frank Ocean. His diversity in hip hop has made people have statements such as "He's Kanye West with a guitar". His talent to rap compliments his singing style, but it is his non-traditional guitar playing that captivates the audience because he sounds like a modern one man band. So in the small amount of time he's been playing, this self-taught artist gets respected by veteran guitar players, singers, and rappers. You can find his music on YouTube, soundcloud, and iTunes.

Greenville singer/songwriter Josh Montgomery is poised to come into his own. With a range of influences from Johnny Cash and CCR to Sublime and Michael Jackson, Josh also lists bands and artists that would make most music aficionados (especially those twice his age) blush; in other words, he's as much a student of some of the world's best players -- he's a fan of guitar gods Steve Vai and Joe Satriani -- as much as he's a player/performer himself. And the beauty of Josh Montgomery is that while he revels in his vast list of influences, he dishes out tasty originals that showcase a mature blend of rock, blues, pop and acoustic soul.
