IT’S FORECASTED TO BE A LONG HOT SUMMER IN THE SIX
AND THE CENTER OF THE HEAT WILL BE AT POETRY JAZZ BAR.

WE BRING TO YOU; FORBIDDEN JAZZ HIPHOP EXPERIMENTS, HAUNTING VOCALS AND AFRO LATIN DRUMMING INTERLUDES, SET AMIDST A DIM LIT NARROW ROOM OF WHISPERING, SCHMOOZING SILHOUETTES.

NEW THIS MONTH:
BOSTON-BASED CANADIAN ARTIST RACHEL FAWN.

RACHEL RETURNS WITH HER DARK, FORBIDDEN, SOULFUL VOICE TO THE POETRY STAGE, SEE HER AND HER KILLER BAND UP CLOSE AND PERSON, THURSDAY JULY 11TH, 930PM

“A jazz sounding voice combined with melancholy piano creates an experience. And is that not what music is about? Rae Fawn takes on the copious weight of emotion, and provides a listening experience filled with sadness, and the uplifting ability of voice.”
— Pump the Beat, New York City

AT POETRY WE DO NOT DO COUNTRY CLUB JAZZ. WE ARE TAKING THIS HISTORIC CULTURAL GENRE BACK FROM ELITE PRIVATE CLUBS; DISRUPTING THE JAZZ LANDSCAPE IN TORONTO.

AT POETRY WE ARE EXPERIMENTING WITH THE NEW, USING THE PAST AS A BACKDROP, JUMPING WITHOUT PARACHUTES MUSICALLY, NOT KNOWING THE OUTCOME;
YOU ARE THE WITNESS.

THIS IS POETRY
