    Dear Friends, I'm playing guitar as part of this special show this Friday at Nighttown. Hope you can make it! DETAILS: Okantah, The MKE Poet featuring Vince Robinson and the Jazz Poets with Special Guest Artists, The Hue People!! --- Most often compared to legendary poet and song writer, Gil Scott-Heron, Baba Okantah strives to bring maximum impact to "The Word." His music is eclectic and ranges from the blues to straight ahead jazz, with some p-funk flavor seasoning a hot hypnotic roots reggae groove. MKE performances are part ritual, part revival and part healing circle. The Muntu Kuntu Energy Poet likes to say, [my music] "ain't hip hop, but, it's hip!" Vince Robinson & the Jazz Poets were formed in 1997. Featuring Vince Robinson on keyboards; Derrick James, bass; Sam Hooper, guitars and Reggie Holmes on drums, they have performed at several venues including the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Cleveland State University, Cleveland Museum of Contemporary Art and the Cleveland Museum of Art as well as a guest appearance on the WVIZ--TV 25 program, Applause. Featuring Afi-Nur Nkrumah, Anita Rose Banks, Ceco Selinas and Steven E. Boyd, the Hue People are Cleveland's premier vocal ensemble. "Their instruments are four ... voices blended together to create a unique and powerful sound. It's difficult to describe how wonderful music sounds when it comes from talented and dedicated artists that commit mind, body and soul to their art. Hue People are cultural messengers that embody a blend of melodious African rhythms that resonate distinctly in every note." Join us for an evening of serious roots culture poetry and music in honor of the memories of Martin Luther King, Jr. and Gil Scott-Heron!!! $20 at the door. For more information, call Nighttown at 216-795-0550 or log onto http://nighttowncleveland.com./
