Rupa & The April Fishes
Global alternative band Rupa & The April Fishes will entertain you with their seamless blend of indie-roots-neoclassical-international sounds, creating a bold and cinematic body of music with themes that center around the fluid vagaries of life, love, death and a borderless world.
Conspiracy of Beards
A 30-member a capella male choir that performs exclusively the songs of the legendary poet, novelist, and singer-songwriter Leonard Cohen.Transforming Cohen's simple melodies into complex four or five part harmonies, their sound ranges from tender to robust. One can hear influences of contemporary, jazz, gospel, barbershop, classical and even doo-wop styles in the unique arrangements by chorus members. Using the genius of Cohen's words, the Beards inspire the audience to ponder personal, political and spiritual life throughout the show amid laughter and cheers.
There will also be performances by Santa Cruz's Bravas pra Brasil, an Afro-Atlantic dance group, and 2012 Bay Area Carnaval Queen Ashlee.
The Rendezvous for Rivers provides sponsors with unique exposure to a broad audience of individuals in the Bay Area and beyond. International Rivers' email and web presence reaches a cross-section of river, water and human rights advocates globally. Our organization and outreach bring together people of all ages to support and protect our planet's greatest assets – people and freshwater. Partnering with International Rivers as a sponsor provides your company with an audience of people who care passionately about the environment and the impact people have on our planet. Further, all event sponsors will join International Rivers' inaugural Business for Rivers Circle.
