From humble southern beginnings Boris Bluz Rogers has risen through the ranks of spoken word entertainment. He is the slam master and coach of SlamCharlotte, a competitive team of poets whom he led to back to back National Poetry Slam victories in 2007 and 2008, something that has not been done in slam poetry for 15 years.

Bluz has been performing spoken word and hosting events for 6 years. He was the host of the RedBull StreetStyle Contest, Fresh fest B-BOY break dance contest and participated in the Redbull  SayWhat spoken word workshop. An active member in the community, Bluz has worked on several projects with organizations such Junior Achievement, Charlotte Chamber of Commerce, Blumenthal Performing Arts Center, HBOs Def Poetry, The Afro-American Cultural Center, Wachovia, Bank Of America, CBS Radio, Radio Disney, ESPN, SPEED TV, BET, and NASCAR where he wrote and performed several intros for the Nationally televised showed NASCAR:TODAY. Bluz has also performed at the International Fringe Festival in New York and several productions throughout the United States.

Rogers has two National Poetry Slam Championships, three regional championships, three Emmy awards, has been the voice of the Carolina Panthers and appeared on national television and National Public Radio. Rogers has built a career on telling the stories of others.

Using two constants in his life  traveling and music  Rogers BOOM performance titled Road Trippin recreates the people, places, and songs that have made him who he is. Using his background in spoken word poetry, Rogers tells the story of his military brat childhood, becoming a husband and father, and his life as a traveling artist. Meanwhile, a small cast of actors/singers play the roles of friends and family, while he performs songs that Rogers identifies with as important to various phases of his journey. Using innovative theater techniques, slam poetry staging and guest vocalists, this show will be an organic, melodious and honest look into the only story Rogers has never told: his own.
