Nic Collins, 16
Famous fam: He gets his drumming chops from pop-star dad Phil Collins, natch.
Why we’re watching: Nic’s band, Fifty Eight Hundred, has played the Montreux Jazz and Okeechobee Music & Arts festivals. “We take inspiration from classic rock, alternative rock, hard rock, funk and blues, which really gives our music a unique sound,” the high school senior (he skipped a year) tells Alexa.
Breakout moment: In August 2016, the then-15-year-old performed arguably the world’s most famous drum fill — from his dad’s beloved “In the Air Tonight” — to a full house as NYC’s Arthur Ashe Stadium roof slowly opened.
Basel bona fides: Find his band at Miami’s Fillmore, part of a fund-raiser for the Little Dreams Foundation, where his mother, Orianne, serves as CEO.
Up next: Fifty Eight Hundred will debut a self-produced album next year. “I hope to become a great musician in my own right, instead of being remembered for being Phil Collins’ son,” Nic says.
Nayib Estefan, 37 and Emily Estefan, 22
Famous fam: These creative siblings are the children of Miami-based music-biz royalty Gloria and Emilio Estefan.
Why we’re watching: Nayib (right) is the owner of the Design District’s Nite Owl Theater, a screening room reviving 35-mm film. On Saturday nights, his Secret Celluloid Society shows cult classics to cool-kid cinephiles just before midnight. Multi-instrumentalist and singer Emily, released her first album, the jazzy “Take Whatever You Want,” in February. It debuted on four Billboard charts.
Breakout moment: In 2014, film buff Nayib launched a midnight movie series in the back room of Gramps bar. Some 400 films later, his sold-out screenings have included Daft Punk’s “Interstella 5555” and Dario Argento’s “Suspiria.” Emily made her singing debut that same year at the Hollywood Bowl — in front of 100,000 people.
Basel bona fides: Nayib helms a film festival at the Nite Owl during Basel, entitled “Arthouse a Go Go.” Expect “a weeklong blitz of some of the most notorious art-house classics, including the ‘Twin Peaks’ movie and three films by Alejandro Jodorowsky, all projected on 35 mm film,” he tells Alexa.
Up next: Nayib aims to bring more art-house lovers to the Design District, “where they totally get” the thrill of seeing films on celluloid. Emily is growing her fan base on Instagram, now at 102,000….
