Positive Vibes Only is a monthly event created and hosted by Chicagoland singer-songwriter, RJ Griffith. Over the past two years RJ has had his music in radio rotation, in movies and featured on ABC 7 News. He has also performed across the country, which includes recent performances on National TV on the Huckabee Show in Nashville, TN and singing the National Anthem at the Chicago White Sox game. Although RJ is starting to gain recognition now that he is in his late 20’s, he was always frustrated that there were not more opportunities for him to showcase his talents at a younger age.
As a child, RJ wondered why adults always got to have all the fun, now he is finally in the position to change that and give teenagers the chance to showcase their talents and have an amazing time while doing it! Introducing PVOteens (Positive Vibes Only Teens), a positive environment and safe haven for young people 13+ to come and socialize. This is a chance for teens to meet new friends while showcasing their amazing talents (whether it is singing, dancing, spoken word, comedy or acting) in a judgment-free zone.
Admission for the event is $10 or $7 at the door with a non-expired nonperishable food item that will be donated to the Operation Care Food Bank in Griffith, IN. Since Operation Care started in March of 1985, they have fed 345,259 people and have distributed almost 6 million pounds of food to all of Northwest Indiana and Northeast Illinois. Cover charge money will be used to cover event costs and to grow Positive Vibes Only! In time we hope to make this a weekly event.
Please arrive early to sign up for the open mic to be sure to lock in your performance slot.
