The Jam Slam
featuring Luka Lesson and Royalty Noise
Come and drink the rhythmic whiskey of oral storytelling and spoken word poetry set to the improvised music of a full hip hop jazz band. Eight poets explore the dance between music and words. They'll have a few minutes back-stage to dialogue with the band on the aspects of their piece and then away they go...
Luka Lesson, stylish and smoldering as he is, will stun us yet again harkening us back to when he featured at our first ever Jam Slam in August 2012.
We invite you to come make more history with us in the celebratory procession towards our semi finals and season finals in October and November.
And this month's 1st place prize tops possibly all ever prizes (in the whole world.)
No where else can you experience the juicy heart spill that is Slamalama. We got the:
