Tickets are still on sale for Vessels, our upcoming event on June 26th. Space is limited (we’ll be closing sales end of day on Monday, June 20th!), so get those tickets purchased! We’re hoping that we can get everyone as excited as we are to participate and join the fun. We’re offering discounts if you fund us through Kickstarter and tons of exciting entertainment the night of. You don’t have to live close to fund this event, you just have to love supporting the arts and us and we’ll even give you a gift for your effort!
Two weeks ago we gave you a glimpse into the amazing artists that we’ve been honored to feature at this event. As promised, we’d now like to give you a sneak peak into our musical lineup and chef talent.

Not many musicians boast a range which encompasses everything from hard rock to hard funk and everything in-between. Jazz, Hip-hop and even classical stylings can be heard throughout the solo pieces of bassist Uriah Duffy, a bassist who has made a name for himself playing with the likes of Christina Aguilera, Alicia Keys, Whitesnake, Starship, and is currently the musical director for the Bay Area artist Lyrics Born. Uriah employs the use of effects, loopers and just about every technique known to the modern bass guitar to create sounds from thumping’ funk to smooth melodies over soulful grooves.
Max has held down hip-hop drumming in the Bay Area for over a decade. His experience in this field has kept him busy as the backbeat for many artists, most notably the successful underground hip-hoppers Crown City Rockers. Max also incorporates electronics into his sound to create atmospheric space, soundscapes and surprising sound effects.
Together, these two can sound like many more musicians at once, leaving the listener looking for perhaps a third, invisible member. This is the MUD trio.
. In collaboration with our good friends over at Swarm Gallery and Chris French Metal, this event will have it all; local artists, food & drink, music, and entertainment. Our goal is to call attention to the prolific artistic community in Oakland. Vessels will explore and challenge people to think about how they use and experience vessels in their daily lives through art, music, space and food.
