Living Arts Cabaret presents: Four Random Acts of Interest -
Thursday, November 21, 8:00pm $5. ($3. Members) These four acts even though they may sound similar in nature will show that vast difference and individuality in artists.
- Bob is a local singer/song writer who is the rock and folk vane of an uprising professional standard. He is a regular at the Gypsy Coffeehouse Open Mic Night and is working on his first studio album.
- T-Bone goes to both sides of the board from ³in your face² to extremely romantic poetry - always with a strong message and great use of language.
- Jess is one of Tulsa¹s up and coming stars. She writes strong emotional poetry of personal & truthful tastes, always an honest point of view that should not be missed.
Last and certainly not least is Cliff.- Cliff is a young musician from Arkansas who has been playing for years. He has music that ranges from humorous to serious and at times to his own renditions of other artists that have influenced him. So come to Living Arts for a great time of random acts of proficient art.
- and, of course, OPEN MIC afterwards. Call Michael Levell at savage_om@yahoo.com to sign up.
