Bio

The Night Kite Revival (who tour under a new Revival moniker each year) is the ultimate uplift spoken word party experience!! With rotating fourth and fifth members, the three core talent are Derrick Brown (opening artist for Cold War Kids, The Flaming Lips, and comedian David Cross), Anis Mojgani (2-time Individual National Poetry Slam Champion; HBO's Def Poetry Jam) and Buddy Wakefield (2-time Individual World Poetry Slam Champion; on Ani DiFranco's Righteous Babe Records). Tested and proven, these verbal acrobats join together each year for a national tour that undeniably charges the hearts and smiles of every audience it meets.
