ORGANIZER: Craig A. Combs
Ypsi Promoter Features Area Performers to Raise Global Awareness
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Local poet and event promoter, Craig A. Combs of Sacred Star Productions [www.sacredstar.com], will present a very special music and spoken word event at the Wurst Bar, located at 705 West Cross Street in Ypsilanti, Michigan.
“100 Thousand Poets & Musicians for Change” is being produced in conjunction with the global event, now in its fourth year. The aim of this worldwide collaboration is to connect other poets, musicians, and activists around the country and across the globe to celebrate and promote peace and sustainability and to call for serious social, environmental, and political change.
The show will take place on Sunday, September 28, 2014 from 6:30-11:30pm. Open Mic Signup starts at 6:30pm, along with the Overture and opening act, featuring Wayne-Westland duo Jake LeMond and Joe May. Also featured will be SE Michigan trios Rustic Union and Cold Tone Harvest, Julie Babcock, Edward Morin, Matt Lindeman, John F. Buckley, Arnie Koester, David Jibson, Jessa, R.J. Fox, Tim and Kristi, J. Joseph Kane, and John Heath (from Trembling Earth). Combs will host and emcee the event.
All musicians, comedians, poets, and other spoken word artists are welcome and encouraged to join in and voice their ideas of what Change means to them. The Open Mic segment will follow the Variety Show. Since this is an acoustic event, large ensembles and outside amplifiers will not be permitted.
Combs, who has produced eight separate variety shows in Ypsilanti this year alone, will again join forces with the video crew of Dark Elf Entertainment, who will be filming the event and streaming the video content on their web-TV channel [www.WDEE-TV.com] following the show.
This event is open to the public, and admission is FREE. All ages are welcome until 9 pm—adults over 21 only after that. There will be giveaways and a raffle drawing, as well, and anyone who makes a donation to our Food Gatherers [www.foodgatherers.org] Food Drive will receive a raffle ticket for every food item or $5 donated. Anyone interested in participating should contact Craig Combs at firstname.lastname@example.org for more details or phone (954) 607-8428.
