          Saturday, February 5th from 3-6pm. Featured Poet, Open Mic and
          accompaniment by the experienced poetry band the Jeff Robinson Trio.
          $7 at the door. This is a monthly series, the 1st Saturday of every
          month from 3-6pm. On February 5th the Featured Poet will be Jive
          Poetic.

          From his hometown in Buffalo, NY to London, England JIVE POETIC has
          ignited microphones with humorous wordplay and thought provoking
          verbal display. During a lengthy deliverance of revolutionary
          regression to teen suicide and sex, JIVE POETIC opts to teach the
          masses a lesson in life. His incentive? Watching the reaction of his
          listeners.

          And after winning his first slam in January of 2001, it was
          understood that his audience heard every word he said. Soon, JIVE
          POETIC began to season his art form through feature performances at
          local New York and New Jersey venues earning his stripes as a verbal
          connoisseur after rave performances at the Brooklyn Moon to
          Serengeti Plains. The University of Buffalo graduate would later
          return home to claim Buffalo New York's Grand Slam title in 2002. A
          former member of the internationally recognized Tri-City slam team
          that won "The Cross The Boarder Slam" held in Toronto, Canada.
          Presently JIVE POETIC is a member of the Nuyorican Poetry Café's
          National slam team.

          While his voice is lightened in humor, his topics are heavy.
          Therefore, JIVE POETIC prepares to release his second solo CD "The
          Pain of a Crowded SOLitude" a spoken word production filled with
          sensual images and turmoil through the reflection of social
          acceptance. This Album is a follow up project to his First
          CD "Assault with a Loaded Statement." As a mindful poet, serious
          performer and inquisitive speaker, JIVE POETIC attempts to take his
          listeners in to a mind state beyond the obvious and dares you to
          listen, further.

              Browne.

              Mahogany, born in Oakland, California, has been performing on the

              Educational Director. Mahogany can also be heard on radio airwaves
              throughout the country as the femme fatale poetic voice on
              Hennessy's Poetry Minute.

              Her past performances include special appearances on CBS' talk shows
              The Ananda Lewis Show and Iyanla Vanzant Show, while she presently
              completes her 2002 LadySmyth: Untitled European tour. Ms. Browne has

              phenomenal SugarShack Slam; the Hottest Poets Slam @ Jimmy's Uptown
              and Buffalo, NY Njozi Magazine's Slam & Tri-State Team Slam.
              She is the author of two self-published poetic works Soul Systa's
              Elixir & Drifting Under the Influence, and has produced two LPs
              LADYSMITH: Untitled & her initial introductory CD Papercuts: An
              Acapella Series. Ms. Browne currently tours the ever-growing college
              circuit with endearing words promoting self-love and supporting
              women empowerment. She fronts the birth of a performance poetry
              union (Artist Alliance) along with a spoken word publication (Verses
              Magazine). As Editor-in-Chief of, a literary product focusing on the
              art of performance and written poetry, Mahogany and publisher Marie
              Malette, anticipate the launch in spring 2003. Her journalist works
