SFPC Presents AURAL FIXATION: Midday Music & Mimosas! Tickets on Sale Now!

Click here for Tickets!

Soul Food Poetry CafĂ© is proud to present Aural Fixation: Midday Music and Mimosas – A dynamic spoken word and live music experience featuring one of the hottest groups in the mid-south: Atlanta’s The Next Generation!

For the last five years, Aural Fixation has been known over the city of Atlanta for bringing very talented poets and musicians together for a quarterly creative extravaganza founded and hosted by Dichotomy the Poet, and always featuring The Next Generation: Dichotomy the Poet himself, Trey Daniels - international Saxophonist, Lance Fury on trumpet, and Singer/Songwriter Desmond Champion.

Dichotomy the Poet is mesmerizing, entertaining, and known for speaking the TRUTH about relationships, love, life, supporting the African American community, being the man he is because of his father, and knowing how to love a woman because of his mother. Dichotomy finds beauty in diversity. Living at the intersection of art and business, the internationally known poet has conquered the world more than once. By opening himself up to different perspectives, Dichotomy is bringing spoken word to a larger audience than ever before. He has been performing spoken word around the world for over a decade, and has produced four amazing spoken word albums.

Attracted by Atlanta’s vibrant musical atmosphere, Trey moved there immediately after he finished college at Florida State University in 2011 and began establishing his presence as a force in the Atlanta music community. Trey’s first recorded single, 86th St., has climbed the Billboard charts to reach #24 and his highly-anticipated album, Evolve, will debut this fall! Trey has shared the stage with musical greats such as Jill Scott, Joey Sommerville, Kim Waters, Smokey Robinson, and Najee. Trey is currently on a world tour with R&B legend Anita Baker and looks forward to reaching higher heights with his unique gift of music.

Lance Fury’s style reflects his world: Jazz injected with Funk, House, Drum and Bass as well as Rhythm and Blues. His roots consisted of playing in church and listening to Atlanta's Jazz 91.9 FM WCLK, eventually leading him to college. Lance was part of the notorious FAMU Marching 100. In 2005, Lance founded and lead a live jam session in Florida titled Moonlit Mondays for years before returning to Atlanta. He's worked with numerous artists such as Chantae Cann, Young Jeezy, Cody Chesnutt, B.O.B and many others. He recently completed a world tour with Janelle Monae.

What do Maxwell, The Weeknd, and Prince have in common? Most of their top-selling hits are sung in the silky, fluttering vocal range of falsetto. Add a dazzling smile, his guitar, and some southern swag, and you have a hint of what Desmond Champion is all about! Desmond burst onto Atlanta’s popping music scene several years ago with this one thought in mind: chasing his dream of bringing his satiny-smooth vocals into the ears, minds, and hearts of many as possible. He will offer a show stopping performance like you’ve never seen before.

Venue: The City Winery Lounge
Date: Sunday July 29th, doors open at 10:30am, show 12pm-2pm
Tickets: $25 in advance, $30 at the door. Click here for tickets:
