Our Magical Performers

Centrak Lasers Corporation
has been producing laser lightshows since 1985, combined with projections, pyrotechnics, computer & laser animation, and many other media including live dance and musical performance. Their work using computer controlled medical ion lasers has been seen in TV commercials and theaters and at raves, sports and music events, civic and corporate events, museums and universities, across the Grand Canyon and at the Great Pyramids.

Einstein’s Secret Orchestra
is a Cleveland-based Psychedelic Cosmic-Blues Space-Band, with music of multiple influences reminiscent of early Pink Floyd. The ESO Experience in right-brain communication break-down is now accessible to the starwood community. Members include Chas Smith on keyboards and Theremin, Michele George on electric violin, Lonesome Cowboy Dave DeLuca on guitar, and Bob Mosic on drums.

Merl Saunders & the Rainforest Band
is an incredible fusion of jazz, rock, and sounds inspired by the music of the Rainforest. Since recording the legendary album/CD Blues From the Rainforest with Jerry Garcia, the Rainforest Band has played at Further Fests and venues around the world, raising our consciousness of the plight of our precious planet. From funky jazz to New Age to Grateful Dead-inspired space jams, the Rainforest Band will transport you to distant realms and deep inside your mind and heart.

Ron Slabe
has been a seeker of unusual sounds for over twenty years. Using electronics and found objects, he weaves diverse influences into a dense sonic web designed to invoke a variety of emotional states. His work has been featured at the Cleveland Performance Art Festival and at Cleveland Public Theatre, the Psychedelicatessen, and small and large venues around Northeast Ohio. He has performed regularly at ACE events since 1986 beginning with the first MusicStar Festival, and he has been the primary performer and mastermind of the StarWood Island Multi-Media Show for the last six years, with his performance group Pyrosonic. Objects in close proximity to him display a curious tendency to burst into flame.
