Hangout Fest 2015 (May 15-17) is just three months away, and thousands are making plans to return to the white beaches of Gulf Shores to enjoy a weekend of music. Each year, Hangout Fest organizers book a healthy sampling of modern exotic music. In the past, bands like Gogol Bordello and Balkan Beat Box had hips moving with their gypsy-infused tunes. For this year’s installment, Beats Antique will highlight unconventional talent to provide an unforgettable set sure to invoke rhythmic moving.
Comprised of Zoe Jakes, David Satori and Tommy “Sidecar” Cappel, the trio mingles electronic and “live” instruments with a variety of genres ranging from gypsy jazz and Middle Eastern to flamenco. Their set is often accented by the expert gyrations of Jakes, an accomplished choreographer who maintains a busy schedule both with Beats Antique and her solo career. Satori and Cappel keep sets fresh with keen ears and a reputation to effortlessly improvise.
Currently, the band is touring in support of their latest effort “A Thousand Faces: Act II.” Those who choose to experience Beats Antique among the other acts in Hangout’s diverse lineup should expect to be on their feet and mesmerized for their entire set.
General admission weekend passes for Hangout Music Fest 2015 are on sale now. VIP and travel packages are available as well.
