GreeneLeaf Jazz and The Spoken WordTK Wonder, Danny Blume and Elijah B. Torn       Thursday, July 7, 20116pm- 8pm    Meet at the Grove   
Join us this Thursday as poet/rapper TK Wonder performs with Danny Blume and Elijah B. Torn. Initially a poet, she has transitioned to rapping, propelled by her combination of “stage presence and sharply-honed writing skills,” which “merge to create a unique style of telling stories and addressing social issues with intricately-intertwined and multiple-syllable rhymes” (ReverbNation). TK Wonder’s electro punch, “slamming lyrics,” and unique hip-hop/spoken word fashion have resonated with audiences internationally, including at international electronic festivals such as VIP, Exit Fest, Belgrade Beer Fest, and Tuborg Greenfest in Europe with audiences ranging from 50,000 to 125,000 people. TK Wonder has played along side artists such as N.E.R.D., The Prodigy, and the Sex Pistols, and has opened for Nas.

Grammy-winner Danny Blume is a music producer, mixer, engineer, composer, and musician who cuts a lot of firewood. Chris Castagno and he built GoodandEvil, a recording studio/ production company after more than a decade in New York, and he has performed in bands of all genres and persuasions. In 2007, he received a Grammy for Best Contemporary World Music Album for the album “Wonder Wheel: Lyrics by Woody Guthrie”  with The Klezmatics. He has performed on Conan O’ Brien and Saturday Night Live, and toured in the US and Europe with his electronic group Liminal.  

Elijah B Torn is a sonic-vigilante, boombastic bass-blipping, live-looping, hand-wired light show-providing and an electronic sonic assault. Born with looping device in-hand, Torn has been creating electronic music for well over fifteen years. He uses Ableton Live to bring an unquantized approach to live electronic performance while adding some much needed grit to the sometimes sterile electronic music world. He plays electric bass and guitar, which are used as the centerpieces for creating fresh textures & sounds. His credits include two solo CD’s and an LP on the way. Mr. Torn has received international print and web press, toured the US, and eats a sandwich in two minutes.
