I am so excited to say I had a blast at my performance at the Nuyorican Poets Cafe, New York City for Open Mic Monday on February 27, 2012.  I had a game plan and went in and execute with a lot of fun.   I had the green shades on tonight getting live (reason I wore them, because their spotlight be super bright, to blind someone on stage), I also perform the 1st single off my upcoming Hip-Hop Ep album “The Burna Effect” in which I decided to go with a photo I already had as the album cover.

I performed a little warm up freestyle called, “Get Up” in which is just a joint I use or going to tend pick up once in a while to fill my 5 minute time slot at Open Mics I will be attending.  I almost forget, the song/freestyle will be on the album (silly me), and I also performed “Girls” which is the first single off the album in which this performance is the first time I performed an original song with a beat created and produced by myself, so I was extra proud of that fact.

Either way the performance went like clock work, even though minimal and simple, I felt I am warming up to stage performances.  I can’t wait to get better. I did happen to have a prop malfunction which was quite funny to me, but it didn’t hinder what I was doing, so the show went on.

I insert a few comedic lines and storytelling in between songs, which worked pretty well.  I think I am going to continue to test those out, as well as my witty stage introduction in which I try to get some laughs in quick by the audience, because overall I want everyone to have a good time.

Thanks, for taking the time to read my experience and I hope you come and see my perform one day soon.  I should be doing many more shows at the Nuyorican and other places throughout the year.  But you can always see and listen to my works via Soundcloud ReverbNation and Vimeo Youtube if you can’t make it to a show or in a different city or country.
