Allsortz Open Mic – August 2014

By Izara B

It was definitely no regular Sunday evening, it was an Allsortz night! (Yep – on a Sunday!).

As part of the Rich Mix Youth Takeover 2014 (link), we took over the building for the day with the help of talented emerging acts; beginning with our performance workshop in the early afternoon to a gig in the evening…

One of our first acts of the night was by Britain’s Got Talent 2012 finalist, Molly Rainford. The audience were in awe as her voice took over…did we mention she’s only 13?!?!

With a long list of nothing but talent to get through, Samantha gracefully took the the stage as well as our first spoken word artist of the night, Samuel King.

Having been part of our performance workshop earlier on, some participants just couldn’t get enough. Jamie & Caitlin came back for more as well as Ayshamar, who all represented for the ‘takeover artists’.

Just like any other Allsortz night, we had a handful of Wildcards who took to the stage. India Graye captivated the audience (even without her ukulele), Imani showed us exactly how talented she was and Lord Apex owned the stage with his unique flow.

We also had the pleasure of welcoming Allsortz Open Mic regulars; spoken word artist Izara B who performed her latest piece ‘Resurrection’, DC SCRIBBLA who brought an old school flavour to the night and stand out performance of the night by the lyrical Narko.

Last but not least, Ben Rivers band brought the night to a close with a touch of folk music.

We’ve got one more special date for you all this month (yes we’re spoiling you). The next date is Wednesday 27th August at Dalston Roof Park! (Flyer)
