Rene Reyes & Sweet Verse Production are doing it big for ‘Spoken Word’.
2006 is going to be the biggest concert ticket for Underground Spoken Word productions to date. The SWEET VERSE MOVEMENT is the vision of Spoken Word Extraordinaire, founder and CEO, Rene “brewedsosweet” Reyes. Ms. Reyes has taken her love for Spoken Word and her great business savvy and dedicated her life to making a point of changing the game for Underground Spoken Word Artist around the world! According to Rene Reyes, “The goal in doing a production this size and by being more selective in our venue choices, and working closely to capture the hottest talent in the Spoken Word industry, is to improve the level of respect given to our craft and to us as performing artists. Its time for the world to know that we are bigger than the café's and clubs where we break our performance cherries and patronize regularly for home town appeal, by being very gracious and humbled in the 'stepping stone'' of these sorts of venues.“
However, The $5 and $10 venues are over on a large scale, because just as fans will go and support a Hip Hop artist for $50 per ticket, the entertainment industry neglects to make it known that Spoken Word Artist also have true, raw talent that truly is priceless on this ticket, and we also like to eat and feed our families, so we need bigger productions and better venues to really change how we are viewed as Spoken Word Artist."
The independent large production for the Sweet Verse Movement, will begin the “4th ANNUAL SWEET VERSE SPOKEN WORD TOUR” from August 14th through August 16th 2006. This multi city tour will begin in Southern California, at the Anaheim Convention Center ( Near Disneyland) and the touring cities are in the following order: Anaheim CA, San Diego CA, Houston TX, Charlotte NC, Washington DC, Newark NJ, Miami FL, Nashville TN, Philly PA, Chicago IL, and Chattanooga TN.
