ONiT! PR in association with Got Soul Events presents Rum Punch Revived!
Due to popular demand (and constant pangs of nostalgia), ONiT! PR is proud to announce the return of one of London’s favourite live events, Rum Punch.
Originally established by Partnas in Rhyme (Comfort, Dubb’l yoo T and Saran Green) in 2008, Rum Punch ran until early 2012 and became a home from home for emerging and established entertainers alike.
Best known for showcasing outstanding talent in an engaging, inclusive and unpretentious environment, the creative haven for diverse artists from the world of entertainment afforded PIR the privilege of sharing some of the UK’s finest; from Ed Sheeran, David J The Pugilist and Troy the Magician to Kat Francois, Mikill Pane, Ola the Comedian and Louise Golbey.
Fast forward to 2014, ONiT! PR (Comfort), has joined forces with one of London’s hardest working Promoters, Essay of Got Soul Events (Got Soul Sundays, Days Like This, Let’s Talk), to present Rum Punch Revived; the invigorating blend of entertainment consisting of a generous quantity of poetry and spoken word, an ample measure of singing, a quart of rap and one part comedy, infused with a splash of open mics, poured liberally into a cool venue and garnished with a sprinkling of great music.
Guaranteed to leave your creative taste buds refreshingly intoxicated, Rum Punch Revived will leave you feeling inspired and yearning for more. Like most alcoholic beverages, Rum Punch should be enjoyed by mature, responsible audiences only.
An array of acoustic and/or a’capella talent, from a wide range of genres and backgrounds. Featured Artists are not announced in advance, as is the Rum Punch way; trust us when we say, there is something for everyone and you won’t be disappointed!
Comfort | Unabashed Spoken Word Artist and Social Commentator, Comfort (founding member of Partnas in Rhyme), isn’t afraid to speak her mind. Aptly dubbed ‘Art without Apology’, Comfort offers thought provoking, yet entertaining lyricism, peppered with her no nonsense take on modern life and relationships.
Essay | He’s not a DJ, he just plays music!
Got Soul Sunday’s founder and London’s busiest Promoter, Essay plays an eclectic selection of Soul, Neo Soul, Hip Hop & Old School Classics.
All types of artists are welcome and the list is compiled on a strictly, first come, first served basis. Please arrive early (18:45) and put your name down on entry.
