Evening filled with live bands and DJs including Great Caesar, Tasha Blank, Anthony Demby & WHY and CHESNEY SNOW from B.E.A.T. NYC and others.

Since 2008, The Feast has been committed to fostering a community of innovators who are revolutionizing their industries and striving for social impact. Each year we host a flagship Conference to share unique perspectives and tackle today’s greatest societal challenges.

This year, The Feast will be hosting our annual Conference at Pioneer Works in Red Hook, Brooklyn, October 9th-11th. The Feast is partnering with Pioneer Works to rally support around the developing post-Hurricane Sandy Red Hook community. Pioneer Works Center for Arts and Innovation is a collective of artists, scientists and innovators that has the potential to act as a hub of creative capital in a post-industrial, post natural disaster location.

reat Caesar aims for the heart with a vulnerable blend of brass, voice, and indie-rock, drawing from acts like Arcade Fire and Beirut to create music that confronts the things that really matter: love, legacy, and the complexity of human relationships.

The NYC band’s 2014 debut phenomenon, Don’t Ask Me Why, combines art and activism in a video that juxtaposes the civil rights movement of the 1960s with today’s fight for sexual equality. Supported by figures as varied as Russell Simmons, Deepak Chopra, Arsenio Hall, and Superbowl champion and LGBT advocate Brendon Ayanbadejo, the video has already challenged hundreds of thousands to take a stand for love and equality.

Don’t Ask Me Why is available now via all major digital outlets, and will appear on CD and vinyl as part of a forthcoming EP produced by Griffin Rodriguez (Beirut, Modest Mouse, A Hawk and a Hacksaw).

Great Caesar is comprised of John-Michael Parker (vocals, guitar), Adam Glaser (bass), Tom Sikes (trumpet), Mike Farrell (guitar) and Stephen Chen (saxophone, also of San Fermin).
