KALEIDOSCOPE is an indie music concept created by Josh86 and DJ Disco Rude in 2005, to showcase local bands that fall outside of the mainstream. The genres explored range from punk to soul to disco to folk. It helped build a scene with acts such as Linus the Band, The Malcognitas, Le Tenia, At Sea, Painted Highways, Gary Liu, Sabrina, DJ Jet Boy and more

Half Step Down originated in Honolulu, HI in September of 2014. Each member of Half Step Down brings their own sense of musical originality and as a collective, this band creates a unique amalgamate of alternative sound. All listening ears will hear overtones of analytical metal and punk, to indie and soul. Rhythmic sounds drive each song forward and melodic overlay instill a sense of calm.

Victor Artis is a solo artist hailing from Haleiwa of the famed Ron Artis Family Band. Featuring smooth vocals and nimble guitar playing, he adds his own touch to the growing singer-songwriter scene in Hawaii

DJ JET BOY is a promoter and DJ working in the Chinatown, Honolulu area, active since 2006. He got his start spinning vinyl at 80's nights and indie-garage events and has opened for varying acts like Black Lips, Steve Aoki and more. He now produces Kaleidoscope - the longest-running indie rock night in Honolulu.

DJ MONKEY has been spinning since Halloween ‘94, San Francisco. Inspired by electronic music scene after a number of limeys brought rave to the Bay Area in late ‘90. Grew up on the classic rock, soul and disco from Mom & Dad’s Bay Boomer generation. Still loves hip hop, rap, indie, breakbeats and bass music of all kinds. First attended 1015 Folsom in ‘87 when it was Das Klub, to dance to post-wave electronic pop, industrio-goth, Miami bass, proto-house and disco revival in skinny black clothing, stand-up hair and skateboarding sneakers.
