Not just any open mic night – this was Allsortz Open Mic night, and what a special night it was!
The evening started with an exclusive press screening in association with the Youth Media Agency for Samuell Benta’s hit web comedy series, All About The Mckenzies . The main space at our home venue of Rich Mix in east London was jammed of fans, mainstream and youth press teams, as well as the odd celebrity and of course the cast of the series!

After watching the first episode which had the whole audience laughing away, it was time for more of London’s best talent to take to the stage and entertain us. And entertain us they did!
The first act up on stage was folk band, ‘Francis and Boyd’ – a group of under 23 year olds with talent and stage presence that surpassed their years! The energy from the band was contagious and before long the crowd were up, and they were dancing!

More great performers took to the stage including first time performer at #AllsortzOpenMic #Novea who seduced the crowd with sultry tones…
Next up was Joe Eyre who got us all laughing again with unique comedy, Nego True engaged our minds and got the audience wondering about ‘Sometimes’
The list of WildCards was long and some of the most talented we’ve seen this year. Samuel King, Strive, Drama, JC, Laid Down Lover, Jolade, Shadow, Alvin, Mica Penn and Stephanie braved the walk to the Allsortz stage and were rewarded for their efforts by nonstop applause. Hoping that we’ll see that all back here soon playing one of our main sets!
What a great night. If you weren’t there, then you definitely missed out on a very #happymonday
