Cincinnati hip-hop artist Juan Cosby and his record label Grasshopper Juice Records founded Adjust Your Eyes (AYE) Music & Art Festival in 2006. AYE is a Cincinnati-based community festival, fundraiser, and celebration of art. Past performers include Walk The Moon, Stephanie’s Id, Macpodz, and Rumpke Mountain Boys. Since 2006, Grasshopper Juice-related events have raised over $5k benefiting the Pink Ribbon Girls, American Cancer Society, Apple Street Market, Susan G.
