Rhythm n' School by Alex Bieler
the LEC (Lower East Side Connection)

Usually Friday night is the time for people to forget about school for a couple of days, but Rhythm n’ School will help bring education to the forefront during the start of the weekend.

DreamBig Productions and a group of local rappers will team up for a hip-hop showcase at The Beer Mug Friday, March 27. A portion of the proceeds from the event will benefit Erie’s Charter School of Excellence in honor of the 30th annual Music in Our Schools Month.

The lineup for Rhythm n’ School promises a quality quintet of performers, with Profound Produce, William Weyes, PA Dre, ChukT, and Will-E Hardy set to perform. In addition, 2013 40 Under 40 alum C.Brown and Best of Erie 2014 winner Jonny Evans of The LEC will handle hosting and sound duties, respectively.

 “I wanted artists who are very dedicated to their music and very motivated and are inspirational,” says Crystal Marie, the person behind DreamBig Productions. “None of the music that I promote has to do with violence or crime, and I thought that was very important for this type of event.”

According to Marie, the performers were happy to help support the Charter School of Excellence, particularly Profound Produce, who also teaches English as a second language for the organization. It also didn’t hurt that there are plenty of high quality rappers in The Flagship City.

“The hip-hop scene is huge right now in Erie,” Marie says. “I like to incorporate that into my events and there are a lot of inspirational artists out there who are rappers.”

You can help kids hit the books at the Charter School of Excellence with a $3 cover, a small price to pay for benefiting education in the area and an impressive night of hip-hop. – Alex Bieler
