The Recipe Poetry Guild LLC

Theodore “Priest” Hughes and Desmond “3-3-7” Jones, life time poets and also ten year veterans in performance poetry, came together and launched in 2005 as a duo poetry team known as, The Recipe. “We chose to work in a team format to encourage peoples to work together towards common goals. We believe that by exemplifying excellence and team work as spoken word artist/activist we can influence change.”

The Recipe quickly became known for its dramatic heart felt chemistry during performances. Incorporating multiple artistic mediums to heighten the social conscious message becoming known as Dramatic Art n Rhythm,”We combined props, music and theatrical interpretations with spoken word.” Audience acceptance and appreciation led to winning many local poetry slams, opening doors to do featured performances around the Kansas City, Mo area and nationally.

The Recipe has performed for youth programs, Fund raisers, Class Reunions, Theaters, Arenas, Churches, Schools, and Night Clubs.
