Katzâs spoken-word is raw, unapologetic, witty, and soulful. As Out Magazine wrote in 2006, âKatz avoids falling into the common spoken-word trapâ¦and instead uses engaging wordplay, razor-sharp wit, and hip-hop rhythms.â

SPOKEN WORD: Poetry, SPOKEN WORD: With Music



Details:
Ok, so the name Athens Boys Choir can be a bit deceiving but you canât blame a Transsexual man living in the Deep South for having a sense of humor about the whole ordeal. So Katz, the Choirâs now solo member, travels the country speaking âthe good wordâ throwing down hard hitting spoken-word that deals with issues of Gender, Politics, Love, Sex, and everything in-between.

Katzâs spoken-word is raw, unapologetic, witty, and soulful. As Out Magazine wrote in 2006, âKatz avoids falling into the common spoken-word trapâ¦and instead uses engaging wordplay, razor-sharp wit, and hip-hop rhythms.â He has had the honor of sharing the stage with such artists as Ani Difranco, Indigo Girls, Bitch, The Butchies, Danielle Howle, and Michelle Malone. He has also opened for poets of HBOâs Def Poetry Jam on more than one occasion.

Being a out Transsexual, Katzâs spoken-word often becomes a platform for education and activism, but all work and no play makes for one intense performance so he lets loose with sarcasm, pop culture references, and videoâs featuring Barbara Streisand as Yentl and sassy footwork by the stars of the 1979 hit âRoller Boogieâ.

Athens Boys Choir has been touring nationally since 2003, performing for audiences that are becoming more diverse everyday. You donât have to be a spoken-word enthusiast to enjoy the lyrical stylings of the Athens Boys Choir. Katz has the unusual skill of opening even the most skeptical minds to the world of performance poetry. With three CD's already out and a non-stop touring schedule, Katz/The Athens Boys Choir has established himself as a force in the spoken-word/queer/pop culture/homo-hop movement; you choose how it moves you.


Press Quotes:
âNo one since Ani Difranco has taken the power of the
English language and put it to such good use.â
Young Gay American Magazine - Feb/March 2005

âAnybody who loves the poetry slam scene or ever dreamed of being a Sister Spit groupie will appreciate the Athens Boys Choirâ
Girlfriends Magazine â Dec/Jan. 2005

âKatz is a fiery ball of queer southern charm, humor and opinion; his revved-up poetry and performance is as entertaining as it is growth-provoking.â
Michelle Tea â March 2007

âWith apologies to Alix Olson, spoken word has never been
quite this good.â - Curve Nov. 2004

âKatz avoids falling into the common spoken-word trapâ¦and instead uses engaging wordplay, razor-sharp wit, and hip-hop rhythmsâ
Out Magazine â Jan. 2006

â...airing our culture's dirty laundry with infectious,
stream-of-consciousness rapping.â
- Frontiers Magazine - Nov. 2004

âKatz has the nuance of an old soul when he does his thing. With the inclusion of class, culture, and race dynamics in transgender politics, Katz makes room for the evolution of a movement. He doesn't shy away from questioning his own community and remembers that humor broadens the most narrow minds. This self aware spoken word artist has potential to be a leader to his generation of queers and a bridge to an older generation if they are willing to listen.â
- Amy Ray (Indigo Girls) July 2005
