President, OTG Cares
Ted Weissberg started an open mic, called Row Cypher, in his freshman dorm with help from local spoken word and hip hop artists in the Chicago area. Steadily drew in bigger crowds and had to move to larger venues. Row Cypher, Inc.
Transformed into a performing arts company that now puts on open mic, showcases, concerts and educational programs around Chicago. Ted has already booked well known local, regional and national acts such as Drunken Monkeee, DJ Slugo, Phenom, Omega McBride, Sidewalk Chalk and many other local artists and groups. Ted hopes to continue this work with On The Grind Management to further his skills. His ultimate dream is to work in the entertainment/performing arts industry after college graduation.
