In a few hours, the weekend is about to commence. As is often the case, people young and old welcome the opportunity to have a break from their school and work routine and enjoy some down-time. In fact, some people hustle and holler in excitement over what the holiday weekend can bring.
On Friday, September 26th, at the Riverside Epicenter (135 Riverside Parkway in Austell), starting at 9pm (the doors actually open at 8pm), the monthly and family-themed creative entertainment series Hollalujah takes center stage. With a blend of poetry, comedy, spoken word, and music, this “rotational series” (as it alternates between the Porter Sanford Center and Epicenter) promises to bring multiple segments of the community together.
“We want to provide high-quality family themed entertainment”, notes founder Christopher “Cocktails” Cornell. “It’s our goal of making sure people young and old are able to come together for a great and enriching time”.
This Friday’s lineup includes the comedy of Black Top Comedy Improv, HBO Def Poet Red Storm, and Comedian Rod Z. Praise 102.5 FM’s KD Bowe (who also does the in-game announcements at the Atlanta Falcons’ home games) is serving as the guest host. The intermission music is provided by DJ Tron on the “1’s and 2’s” (i.e. the turntables) to help keep the crowd “motivated” and the event in a festive mood. As an added bonus, internationally recognized gospel music artist Canton Jones is scheduled to perform.
A limited number of advance tickets are available online for $15 per person, and VIP tickets are available starting at $20 per person. Tickets are available at the door, but they are likely to be higher than the advance price. For additional information and details, prospective patrons are encouraged to visit the website, as well as visit the social media platforms of Facebook (hollalujahcomedy), Twitter (@hollalujah), and Instagram (@hollalujah).
Family themed and grounded entertainment through the lenses of comedy, poetry, spoken word, and media can surely bring together multiple segments and demographics within the community. This Friday, the creative team of Hollalujah provides an opportunity for all to come together in a family-centered setting to enjoy some clean and quality entertainment.
That’s something to hustle and holler for…
