Live Music- Starwolf

The Art of Travel is delighted to welcome St. Louis' Starwolf to this year's stage.  Alive Magazine's Kevin Korinek profiled the trio recently saying the band "takes its cues from the nostalgia-laden synth soundtracks of the 1980s. But theirs is a new evolution of space-dance, brought to life through vintage analogue keyboards and groove-inspired bass lines, chill wave beats...." Starwolf is preparing to release its debut EP this fall after landing a high-profile spot in the lineup at LouFest 2017.

 Billy and Julie in the morning, KLOU 103.3 FM, are honored to be the MC’s of the Art of Travel Gala in 2018.
