ABOUT VIBIN’ EXPOSED
Vibin’ Exposed Open Mic & Artist Showcase was first established in 2007-2008 as a weekly event to provide a platform for all genres of underground artists to showcase their talent in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Vibin’ Entertainment, a Minneapolis based promotional company owned by Jemika Hayes and Elgin Wren, had been hosting open mic events prior to for the past 10 years. Looking to expand their brand and provide more exposure to the performing artists through media and sponsorships, Vibin’ decided to recruit the newly founded MaXXposure Marketing Group, a local marketing, pr, and promotional company in 2007.
Each and every week, underground artists from all over the Twin Cities and other parts of the Midwest would come out to perform in front of an intimate crowd setting of over 200 people. From R&B/Hip-Hop to spoken word, every performer displayed unique talents that essentially created a foundation for a considerably loyal fan base.
With the growing success of Vibin’ Exposed Open Mic, MaXXposure was able to gain sponsorship for the event by a few media outlets such as Crunk Magazine (Atlanta, GA), The Midwest Leak (Indianapolis, IN) andInBox DVD & Magazine (St. Louis, MO). Out of those sponsorships, numerous open mic artists had the opportunity to be published in nationally distributed publications.
During a period of three years, Vibin’ Entertainment and MaXXposure continued to host open mic events at various venues in the downtown Minneapolis area. In March of 2012, Vibin’ Open Mic was voted and awarded the trophy for “Livest Local Artist Show of the Year” at the 2012 Twin Cities Urban Music Awards. Today, The Vibin’ Exposed Midwest Talent Explosion is still considered one of the best open mic and artist showcases in the Twin Cities.
