Amplified Life Showcase #01

The Lineup of performers is just ridiculous at this point.  We are going to have so much talent in one historic venue at one special time that I guarantee a good time!  I had to think twice about including all of the performers accolades because it started to make the page look cluttered.  But I say that’s a good thing.  If you don’t want to strain your eyes sorting through the mountain of accomplishments, take a quick glance at the flyer.

Here are the details for our first Showcase starting with our special guest hosts in alphabetical order:

Just so I don’t feel left out, or let you think I’m a talentless promoter, I won the Latino Communications Network award for Artist of the Year in 2006 for my work with Palabristas and as a crew we won the 2009 MNSWA Urban Griots Spoken Word Award for  Best Collective (People’s Choice) AND the Cultural Award.  We were also Nominated for Best Poetry Book.
