THE WORD IS... by Junko






VOICEZ & VYBEZ


A NIGHT OF GREAT POETRY, DRINKS, AND ENTERTAINMENT FOR GROWN FOLKS

In this modern day world of entertainment, it's hard to find anything that can stimulate your mind, or even less, give you one of those thought provoking moments of silence. You know what I’m talking about, a Hommy the Clown moments. A moment when you’re reflecting back on the words of the legendary poet Mya Angelou's "Still I Rise" or the lyrics of the late 2 Pac Shakur’s “White Mans World" and you can't say anything but, Whooom, that was deep. In this commercialized world of entertainment, it's hard to even find artist who display a genuine passion for what they do. If the artist that today's entertainment promote are fake, then the clubs and night spots we patronize are more than likely: FAKE. Unless your def, dumb and blind, this could be a problem, BUT, JUNKO have discovered a solution.

VOICEZ & VYBES EVERY THURSDAY NIGHT AT TROY'S LOUNGE OFF SUNRISE BLVD WITH TERRI AND DJ PAPO AS YOUR HOSTS AND REAL POETRY SPOKEN BY ARTIST WHO’S WORDS ARE REAL

Not to make Spoken Word sound like it's new or anything because it's not, but due to a decline in different cultural experiences in the inner cities, few in the 'hood' would know about great poets like Def Jams Poetry's “Will the Real One” who is also part owner of the literary Cafe', and the beautiful Butterfly who’s CD and book release will be on Thursday, May 18, at Voicez &Vybez located at 2990 W. Sunrise Blvd. The only new thing about poetry is Voicez &Vybez every Thursday night at Troy's Lounge. With your funny and thick (yes fellas, thick) host Terri & her partner in crime DJ PAPO, Spoken Word isn't the only entertainment. Terri’s crazy ass will have you laughing so hard, you’ll be choking off the delicious food from the free buffet. I won't forget about DJ PAPO cuttin up behind the DJ booth and those drinks by Troy that keeps you loose not tipsy.

With Terri, Troy, DJ PAPO, and outstanding poets like Poetist, Poetic Vybe, and Shark Bait slam finalist Intrigue & Asia, Voicez &Vybez can only be described one way. A all around fun time for grown folks, and those young adults who have a passion for terrific thought provoking poetry and appreciate a laid back setting with plenty of drinks, good music, free food, and brothahs and sistahs you can be proud of.
