Saturday Nite Cipher is an ongoing mixer series that draws artists and crowds from all over metro Detroit for an opportunity to network, express and keep Detroit artists motivated. Local performances will include saxophonist and emcee Saxappeal, B. Williams, a direct protégé of Grammy and Billboard super producer Michael J. Powell, and singer Gwenation with special invited guests and dignitaries including Congressman John Conyers to support 5E.

“I look forward to unifying our community for a great cause to keep 5E afloat,” said Founder of 5E Gallery and Detroit Young Professional Vanguard Winner, Sicari “DJ Sicari” Ware. “The gallery has become a melting pot for Detroit and a home away from home for hip-hop culture from around the globe and I hope to continue our creative movement in our new spacious location.”

Founded by DJ Sicari, 5E serves as an outlet for Detroit artists and musicians to showcase their talents. Through Sicari’s leadership, he encourages an understanding of contemporary art and hip-hop culture by the diverse local, national, and international audiences that it serves.
