Redemption of a Dogg
October 5th-7th, 2018
The musical, was written by Houstonian, Je’Caryous Johnson and also co-stars R&B diva Tamar Braxton.
Johnson recently told The Hype Magazine.com, “I get to work with hip-hop legend Snoop. The thought alone leaves me speechless,” said Johnson. “I am honored and humbled to be able to partner with him and make history with Redemption of a Dogg. As a fan, ‘it’s exciting and a dream come true’ and as a partnership ‘this is revolutionary.’ The culture of American theatre is about to be redefined.” With Snoop adding, “Please believe you’ve never seen urban theatre like this! With my flavor and his expertise, we’re gonna bring the people an unmissable show. I can’t wait for everyone out there to see it!”
In addition to hip-hop icon Snoop Dogg, Redemption of a Dogg will also star R&B superstar, 4x Grammy nominated and 4x Emmy nominated, Tamar Braxton.
“Seizing the opportunity to work with an icon such as Snoop was a no-brainer,” exclaimed Tamar. “His music has touched our culture in an undeniable way and I’m grateful to take the stage with him by my side, while Je’Caryous leads the way.”
The musical “chronicles a character built around the persona of Snoop Dogg – a multi-faceted character who is a gangsta rapper, family man and man of God. Redemption of a Dogg examines the internal battle one man has between preserving his life-long legacy and losing the love of his life when he is faced with choosing fame and fortune over faith and family. Redemption of a Dogg is set against a backdrop of Snoop Dogg’s greatest hits, as well as, songs from his recently released chart-topping Gospel album, Bible of Love.”

It was about five years ago The Voidz began creating music. They were the brainchild of Julian Fernando Casablancas. The band's bio say "they all have a mutual love of beat driven aggressive music." They like the underground world of old jazz and the avant-garde. They all pride themselves on versatility.
The Voidz is Jeramy Gritter (aka Beardo), a highly skilled (inthe bio) and flavored guitarist as well as the self-proclaimed "trailer park hero",Amir Yaghmai, virtuoso guitarist (grew up playing violin, then discovered metal), Alex Carapetis (aka Young Pirate) on drums - bringing a whole new level of rhythm to rock music. One of the founding members, Jeff Kite, a composer, on keyboards, alongside key spirit-guide, wordsmith and piano-king Jake Berkovici on bass and synths, the voice and wise, stabilizing anchor.
Its Julian Casablancas on vocals, as well as directing, curating and riding the lightning-wave put forth by this creative, talented, band of characters. A collaboration of mutual respect, founded on old friendships and musical kinship....
"When I'm in South America
or Latin America generally, it's always in
and out for festivals.
I feel like the energy of
the people here is incredible."
Julian Fernando Casablancas
Recently Julian Fernando Casablancas, the creator of The Voidz told Noisey.com, "Without a doubt. I'm still on the same mission, still with the same restlessness I've always had. I feel like the first album with The Strokes was the start of that mission and later, I wanted to take another direction. I was just interested in a another type of music, different styles, and countries. The internet opened my mind up a lot. The world of people expanded at a rapid speed and, as in music, you can only learn from it. To listen, for example, to Turkish music from the 70s, African music, or whatever.… It's incredible, but I think the process has slowed down, or, in a way, everything is happening to the contrary. The good new music is in danger – it's hard to find; it's more underground than ever."
