I have the pleasure of being a part of one of Kaffe Live's last shows before they close down. The organization Common Grounds put me on their set as a last minute addition and I'm closing the show from 8:30 to 9. It would mean a lot if y'all Las Vegas humans come thru this show and show some mad love for Kaffe Live. They've been accommodating towards local artists such as myself. Hope to see you there.
For this event, I'll be playing with my homegirl Meg Defante! I go on around 8:30 or so. There will be an open mic before we go on so if you got some bars, pull up!
Come check out the only regular open mic in Henderson, NV. Share your reality through art by performing poetry, music, or comedy. Or, if you don't like to perform, come listen to the amazing artists as they share their art with you. We have 2 amazing features this month and many more who share on the mic.
Meg Defantem, born and raised in Bacolod City, Philippines, now a Vegas local, discovered her knack for writing music around the age of 12. It was, in a sense, her way of documenting the lovely stages of when she was "awkwardly blooming", she shares. After moving to Las Vegas, Meg took an interest in performing at various open mics and her aim is to ibue her peers with a strong sense of acceptance of their own personal orientation through her music. That it's always cool to just be YOU.
His Earth name is Joshua Luna, but he now goes by the name “Mars Luna”, and he’s also known as the “Cosmic Prince” to all of the martians that dwell in the cosmos. Mars was sent to Earth from the Milky Way and he was raised in Honolulu, Hawaii.
As a young earthling, Mars had speech problems and while he was learning how to talk, he learned how to sing and that came naturally to him. Music was an escape route from the troubled times he had in school and it became his primary form of communication. When he was younger, Mars was bullied and cast aside from his peers and felt like he didn’t fit in with them. Over time, through music and singing, he was able to open up and was accepted by his peers. While he was in Hawaii, he created a band in high school called Acoustic Sunrise. He participated in a multitude of talent competitions, sang for local news stations and radio stations until he teleported to Las Vegas, Nevada in 2014.
When he first teleported to Las Vegas, he was in search of something different and solely performed music at church. But one of his close friends and supporters of his music passed away in May 2016 and that invigorated a fire in him to take his music much more seriously than he did in the past. That led him to release his first EP “Genesis (Side A)” on iTunes and Spotify on September 28, 2016. Since the release of his first EP, Mars gradually thrust himself into the local Vegas scene hoping to build his career from the ground up. So far, Mars has performed in events and venues such as the Downtown Podcast (now Vegas Talk), Sticks & Stones, Human Experience, Kaffe Live, Illumilatte, First Friday, the inaugural Springfest LV at Boca Park, Vegas Live Sessions at Artifice, The Artisan Hotel, Sambalatte and Vegenation.
Mars’ aim through his music is to be a “light in the darkness” and he hopes that his music will bring inspiration and joy to people’s lives. He recently released his second EP “True Colors (Side B)” on April 17, 2017. It is available on every digital store and at itsmarsluna.com.
Hey everyone! On April 17, 2017, I released an EP called "True Colors (Side B)" and I'm currently hosting release shows for it in Las Vegas and in Hawaii. I consider this EP release show series as a two city mini tour. I will be playing every song from "True Colors (Side B)" as well as some songs from my first EP "Genesis (Side A)".
In Las Vegas, I will be hosting this release party at Kaffe Live on May 13, 2017. Kaffe Live is one of the very first venues I've performed at in Vegas and it is also the site where I sold my first two copies of the "Genesis (Side A)" EP! I will be sharing this stage with fellow musicians and good friends, Morgan Wright and Angelo Munji. If you plan on going, bring your family, friends and loved ones. It is going to be a blast and I hope to see you there!
From my planet to yours,
