Yan Katz – Director, Guru, Shaman
From deep in the bowels of Cold War Moscow, Yan was drawn by the drums like a lost shaman. Emigrating to Long Beach at a young age he was induced by
subterranean sounds to resonate their sonic gospel. He became entranced by large scale vibrational phenomenon such as Lightning In A Bottle, Coachella and many other plains of visual and aural transcendentalism. It was then that he understood his mission – to awaken the mind and spirit of humanity with love and vibrations.
Drew Drucker – Director of Arts and Music
Commissioned by Yan to head artistic/musical direction for the operation, Andrew Drucker is a regular Renaissance Man of all things musical. This startling well of creativity was conceived locally in Long Beach and was already deeply entrenched in the music business by the time he escaped high school. As producer and resident engineer with the Paramount Recording Group, Drucker has enabled countless artists to realize their full potential, in addition to helming many projects himself, including our featured group, Black Market Music Brokers (BMMB).
Josh Berg – Sr. Editor, Miscellaneous Visionary
Writer, Engineer, Artist, Sociologist, Beard Expert, and Spiritual Guru – Josh Berg is never completely there…. On permanent vacation from his native Chicago, he consults on all things tangible and intangible. Residing in a posh North Long Beach garage, Mr. Berg spends his time experimenting with musical irrelevance, harmonizing with the universe, tending community gardens, and relaxing with his thoughts.
You awake at the sound of the bell, you can feel the vibrations before you hear them. They beckon you to come closer, to become one with the drum, to build a fire and dance around it. The pulse quickens, the sweat pours, you transcend time and space.
