Headlined by none other than Skittles and Griot Gabriel, this show combines the crème de la crème of both spoken word and jazz for a night of never-to-be-repeated moments of musical mayhem and lyrical wizardry.
Groove Verse is all about the moment – the one rule is… no rehearsals. Poets can request certain things in real-time from the band, or get up and do their thing and let the band fill in behind them.
A preselected lineup will be gracing the stage, with guest poets fighting in an audience vote for a chance to headline the next show. Expect appearances from the best spoken word artists on the scene, as you’ve never seen them before.
Headline (20 mins) | Skittles, Griot Gabriel
Guest Poets (10 mins) | B!tez, Reya Saint, Leon the Pig Farmer, SAF-S2E
Band | Joe Luckin, Andy Patterson, Callum Connell, Alex Hill
