Our very first edition of Allsortz Open Mic 2014 started with a bang. We had just a few acts on the lineup, but as they say, ‘quality over quantity’.
We couldn’t start our 2014 edition without getting James déCosta back on stage. Needless to say, he won the crowd over with his stand out performance, with assistance from his acoustic guitarist and bassist, and even had the whole crowd chanting ‘one more’.

Next up we had Coco DeParis and her guitarist take to the stage with a touch of Jazz.

We also had rapper SB Entertainer, who brought a new meaning to the word energy whilst showing us exactly why he loves what he does.

Our only WildCard of the night was myself, Izara B. I performed my latest piece, which I recently performed at parliament, ‘Heads or Tails’.

Last but not least, we had the one and only Infecta. He finished the night on a high with his infectious energy which had the crowd taking part too.
