For three years running, The REC (Royaltie Entertainment Company) has hosted the best poetry jam session in New York City! "The Poet WILL Be Televised!" will hold a special event on every second Wednesday at Silvana! Hosted by hip-hop artist Baxter P Wordsworth, "The Poet WILL Be Televised" pays homage to Gil Scott Heron, iconic for the world-renowned poem "The Revolution Will Not be Televised." We allow poets, spoken word and hip hop artists, and neo-soul singers to come together with a live band to improvise their written word in a new, fresh way. If you would like to perform during the open mic, please remember, TRACKS ARE NOT PERMITTED AT THIS EVENT! The live band will be happy to assist you in any musical stylings you may desire.

A twice monthly live music event in downtown New York City. Our manifesto: We are focused on blues, country, blue grass, swing, and other American roots music styles. We feature artists who are fully committed to playing that style of music, not "part timers". BluesCraft is NOT a blues jam. We live in a jam-free zone lol.

Port Mande (formerly Duo Process), is the collaborative partnership between clarinetist Mark Dover of Imani Winds and pianist/producer Jeremy Jordan. The name Port Mande is a play on the linguistic term “portmanteau” – a word blending the sounds and combining the meanings of two others, like the word smog (itself a blend of “smoke” and “fog”). Much like a portmanteau, Dover and Jordan’s artistic partnership is a blend of all of their vast musical influences – both having worked prolifically in classical, jazz, hip hop, gospel, pop, and world music scenes. Port Mande’s mission is to bring all cultures of people together by embracing music of every genre.

“Every chamber music program needs this kind of energy. While the beginning and ending compositions by Haydn and Brahms provided expected pleasures, it was the Warp Trio’s own jazz/tango/classical works that gave the concert a kick in the pants.” — CAPE COD TIMES
