Description:

A Busboys and Poetry Event hosted this week by Orville Walker

Born in Takoma Park, MD, Orville Walker grew up in Jamaica; and now Landover, MD, where he currently resides. He has been writing poetry for several years but started performing his work in November 2009 at the 12th Street Lounge in Washington, D.C. Orville's poems speak a vivid truth about the struggles of being an artist, and staying constant and true to oneself. He speaks poetry for the voiceless to address the issues no others will speak of and to release pent-up emotions with his pen. Poetry has become his breath of fresh air, his meditation, his therapy. His compelling words have been shared on several stages, in front of numerous audiences. Orville has been the featured poet at spoken word venues such as Busboys & Poets, Messiah & Friends, Indulj, and touched the east coast states Delaware, Pennsylvania & Connecticut.

For two hours, audiences can expect a diverse chorus of voices and a vast array of professional spoken word performers, open mic rookies, musicians, and a different host every week. Expect to be moved, expect a packed house, expect the unexpected, but above all come with an open mind and ear.

$5 Cover. No refunds. Ticket purchase limit of 4 per person. Guests must have their wristbands (tickets) on upon entering the event.

Seating is available on a first-come, first-seated basis. No saved or reserved seats are allowed. Failure to check-in within 30 minutes of advertised start time may result in a forfeiture of seats.
