Another high point in the packed day was Steve Carter and Five Ten's infectious set. Their steel drums and percussive rhythms brought up images of Weather Report's "Black Market." Five Ten had the house on its collective feet with their world music beat and vitality, and they gladly responded to the venue's feedback.

FIVE TEN was born out of the hearts and minds of renowned Oakland musicians: Keyboardist, Composer Steve Carter, multi-Percussionist Marquinho Brasil, and Dennis Smith Bass Guitarist, Composer. Together with internationally known and Grammy nominated Jeff Narell on steel pans, and Santana alumnus Billy Johnson on drums, FIVE TEN is a musical explosion that soothes, excites and electrifies.
