Saturday, Nov. 21

Sure, you can find beats anywhere on a Saturday. Rappers and DJs abound in Erie, but what you really want to hear are the professionals: true artists whose poetry touches you and who can lay down a sound that’s original and funky. The performers at the Victory Show have you covered. Hot Mess Productions and Stay Focused For The Future will bring live music from Mike Jones & Band, Miguel, Cordel, Shok Jordan, C.Brown, DJ Tony, DJ Salt, and Shai Boogie to the Warner Theatre. It’ll be anything but your typical Saturday afternoon party.

This all-ages show also features special performances from Erie Dance Theater. Plus guest speakers Bob Merski and Elvage Murphy — who, along with Stay Focused, are doing what they can to raise up the next generation of leaders for our community. Stay Focused’s mentoring programs motivate our youth to set them on a positive course that will aid them in becoming successful. It’s a positive message with a different method. — Bryan Toy
