Music and Entertainment
Chicago VeganMania has always had an interesting and eclectic mix of activity on the Auditorium stage. This year, we're pulling out all the stops.

2011 performance schedule

11:00  Zach
Zach's music is very upbeat, entertaining, and uplifting. Vegan for 5 years, he performs more than 200 times a year around the country in promotion of vegan ideals, compassion, and more. He started the Akron Peace project in Ohio, and his group promotes and organizes numerous vegan events a year. He is  also a certified World Peace Diet facilitator. Check out his music and see videos at

12:00  Nahotnah
Nahotnah is a motion dance troupe specializing in teaching and performing hoop dance. During our performance we teach individuals big and small how to hoop.

12:45  Kidz in the Mix
This children's breakdancing group is mentored by teacher and choreographer Tanja Pazou

1:00  The Ones
(bio to come)

2:00  Elyahreev Immortal
Elyahreev Immortal is a artist that is dedicated to creating sound that uplifts and regenerates the people. Since the late 90's, as one half of the group T.O.Z, he has performed throughout the world, dispensing lyrical acumen weighted with progressive power. He has performed with such artists across the local and national spectrum,  and continues to work on his craft and connect with others of like minds. He is also a proud vegan.

2:45  The Exponential
The Exponential is a sonic collaboration of synth artist and percussionist Brian Murray and Ben Perkins, who plays the traditional Indian surbrahar (bass sitar) and rudra veena (a tube zither). Their music builds on primitive ambient rhythms to create an environment filled with the sounds and sensations of a hyper-stressed population.

3:45  DJ Dominion
Dominion drops the  Beats and Basslines in a unique  way. His specially designed DJ battle station includes  mixing of  2 CD players, theremin,  laptop and live Waldorf synthesizer blended on a 12 channel sound board instead of the traditional DJ mixer. He has spent 20 years in the music industry watching, learning and  practicing. Experience a multidimensional collage of live synth, sound loops and groovy beats.

The Giving Tree Band was forced to cancel their appearance at this year's Chicago VeganMania because of a contractual agreement. We apologize for any disappointment, but we have a pretty awesome show anyway.
