Jazz – Hip Hop – Piano – Soul – Spoken Word
join us for another opportunity for conscious sharing, community interaction and an evening of spirited music.
As the name – NAKD – suggests, we implore attendees to come on and experience a paradigm shift, leaving behind old dogmas that weigh down.

Everyone gets to participate and share their story, as we stream to a global audience on our live streaming platform.

SHORT STORY: WHERE HAVE YOU GONE CHARMING BILLY | TIM O’BRIEN
“Paul Berlin is serving his first day in the Vietnam War. Earlier in the day, one of his platoon members was killed by a landmine. While on a night march, Paul tries to control his fears.”
“He was pretending he was a boy again, camping with his father in the midnight summer along the Des Moines River. In the dark, with his eyes pinched shut, he pretended. He pretended that when he opened his eyes, his father would be there by the campfire and they would talk softly about whatever came to mind and then roll into their sleeping bags, and that later they’d wake up and it would be morning and there would not be a war, and that Billy Boy Watkins had not died of a heart attack that afternoon. He pretended he was not a soldier.”
