About Yogoman Burning Band:
Jordan Rain of Bellingham, WA took the name Yogoman as his DJ Moniker in 1998. Yogoman is the name of a comic book created by Rain's youth friend and current Seattle Hip Hop DJ Mad Max Wallace. Yogoman hails from Planet Yog, where vibrant and nonsensical dance moves are commonplace. Beginning with a range of musical genres including classic rock, hip hop, soul to punk, DJ Yogoman found a love for Jamaican music, with its playful, laid-back, yet intense, and steadily danceable rhythms. Yogoman also recognized Jamaica's early music (Mento, Ska, Rock-Steady, Reggae, early Toasting & Dub) as being friendly to all ages and backgrounds of human beings. While respecting the ingenuity of the D.I.Y./Underground culture that informed his earliest performances, Rain seeks to fuse the raw, anti rock star, queer positive, and forward thinking elements of underground music with his simultaneous desire to unify people through a music palatable to all-ages and backgrounds.
Rain formed Yogoman Burning Band (YBB) in 2006 to forge his own musical vision. YBB's latest sound showcases vocals and horns over a prominent drum and bass foundation with the intention of moving the spirit in a positive direction, seeking reciprocal exchange though dancing audiences.
YBB has toured with Iron and Wine, collaborated/improvised live with Pato Banton, Junior Reid, Geologic of the Blue Scholars, Winstrong, and many independent M.C.'s and instrumentalists, while sharing the stage with Clinton Fearon (of the Gladiators), RJD2, the Cave Singers, Helio Sequence, Dengue Fever and Orgone. YBB has built a strong name for themselves down the West Coast USA, and becoming internationally recognized for their unique musical experience.

Since its establishment in 2004, Picoso has evolved from a trio playing on the streets of Seattle into a smoking seven piece band that regularly lights up venues around the northwest and beyond. Grounded in the Afro- Latino sounds of the Caribbean, Picoso's 100% original music spans a dynamic spectrum from traditional Cuban son and cha cha to dubbed out cumbia and reggaeton, and of course their mainstay, salsa. Picoso makes any event a party, and whether in clubs, festivals, or private functions Picoso brings a fire that is sure to get things moving.
Integrating a fully capable horn section with hard hitting rhythms, the dance floor is blazing from the first note. The lyrical delivery, led by Puerto Rican cantante (singer) Alfonso Gonzalez and backed up by 7-part harmonies is both passionate and playful, drawing in audiences like a warm hearth in winter. Time and again Picoso proves their ability to control the stage with facility and to send their audience home full of joy and asking for more.
