Mike Geffner’s Inspired Word, one of New York’s most popular indie performance series, presents Variety Experience LIVE!, showcasing this city’s rising star musicians and poets.
The night features rockin’ singer/songwriter/guitarist Ian Bamberger, whose infectious tunes draw from the likes of the Allman Brothers, Van Morrison, and Jimi Hendrix; poet/musician Justin Gratta, whose raw, intense Leonard Cohen-esque rhymes explore relationships and mental health and land squarely on the pulse; the self-reflective spoken word poet Leah V, whose Beat Generation inspired wordplay examines cultural identity and feminism.
Founded/Produced by former award-winning journalist Mike Geffner, InspiredWordNYC began in Jan. 2010.
