The Best Night of the Month just got Better.

The VoiceBox concept is simple, but tuneful: storytelling with a song.


Cathy Richardson of Jefferson Starship performs a featured song, which also supplies the theme for all the evening’s stories. After each storyteller, Cathy performs another song inspired by the story. The stories and songs get woven into an amazing show that will have you laughing and singing along. After the guest storytellers are finished, audience members are encouraged to contribute their stories, which are either five sentences or two minutes in length.

It’s a story, a slam, a song, a serenade, a surrender. A place to be heard and hear about the human condition. It’s community, it’s alive, it’s entertaining and elevating. It’s the old school front stoop, it’s the modern day confessional. Where folks like us who need to create come out and connect to spin and weave and unfurl; to encounter artistry and escape into inspiration. A song leads to a story and a story leads to a song and the beat goes on and out and up. Your feet tap to the rhythm, your head nods in agreement, your hands meet in appreciation, and your heart pounds in anticipation for the chance to share your voice.
