Marc Smith, poet

Bob Long, keyboard

Bob Long and Al Day approached me about putting together a live jazz / poetry performance at Studio5 featuring the legendary founder of the poetry slam movement, Marc Smith. How cool does this sound? Bob and Al are true artists and old friends of ours, and always bring fascinating and soulful performances to our series. Adding the beauty and power of Marc Smith to the mix will introduce the element of spoken word, and allow us to follow our mission at Studio5 of presenting truly unusual artistic performances to our audiences. I hope you can join us – and if you're interested in seeing Marc Smith in action, check out the video below.

We'll be recording this performance for Chicago Jazz Live on WDCB, so you'll be part of the studio audience! See you there! SR

Cash bar, light snacks, free parking right outside! Doors open at 7:30.
