Mayor Jimmy Davis announced that the City of Bayonne will hold the first Open Mic Night at the Bayonne Community Museum on Tuesday, May 15. The doors will open at 6:00 p.m. The program will begin at about 6:30 p.m. Those interested in performing in spoken word, poetry, essays, raps, and rhymes must sign in to participate.
Performers will be called before the audience in order of registration. Mayor Davis said, “We have a growing number of talented performers in Bayonne. Open Mic Night will give them an opportunity to do their best in front of a hometown crowd. We look forward to providing this new forum for our local stars to shine. We hope this will be just the beginning.”
Open Mic Night will not include musical performances. Background drumming will be accepted, if it helps the performers of the spoken word.
Foul language will not be allowed in the show, in order to maintain a family-friendly atmosphere in a public building.
Open Mic Night will be free of charge and open to the public. Light refreshments will be provided.
The Bayonne Community Museum is located at 229 Broadway at the corner of 9th Street. Mass transit to the site is available by either the Broadway Bus, or by Hudson Bergen Light Rail trains to the 8th Street Station, which is located around the block.
On Sunday, March 18th in Newton, New Jersey, Team Wright out kicked, out punched, and out shouted their opponents to take home numerous first place titles at King’s Karate Tournament.
Our newest Rising White Belt Karate Stars were Nico Sampson (Wright’s nephew) and Mr. John Daniel (white belt) who both took first place in their kumite Novice Divisions. John Daniel came short of winning the “Grand Championship” after beating the Yellow Belt Champ, Green Belt Champ, Brown Belt Champ, and another Brown Belt for a close match for the final Grand Championship. John and Nico represented Team Wright as a strong dominating force for the “Bayonne Warriors,” says Head Coach and Trainer Hanshi Grandmaster Austin Wright Sr. In addition, Kenneth Jackson Jr.—black belt—was the 2017 Defending Division Grand Champion. He became Runner Up this year. He lost a close match 5-4 for the 2018 Grand Championship. Sensei Jackson also placed 2nd in Kata.

Located in the Abra de ilog, the area was once known for its mining of gold. Local tribal people called the Mangyans live modestly in the town.
