THE MARCH SCHEDULE

[ NOTE ] 
WE DO NOT TAKE RESERVATIONS.
FOR GROUPS OR EVENTS BOOKING
PLEASE SEE OUR CONTACT PAGE.

 

March is full of intrigue and surprises, starting with The Kensington Market Jazz Festival - Spring Series, featuring Alana Bridgewater and Heather Bambrick.

 Joanna Majoko, new to the Poetry stage, Joanna brings a bag of jazz standards, spiced with her signature dark cool. 
- Think Ella

Nerissa Bradley is new to the Poetry stage and her imposing disposition matches her distinct voice and mood.  Nerissa reworks the classic hits like no one you’ve heard before. 
- Think Nina

Quincy Bullen is seriously going places and Poetry will be the take off launching pad. Quincy’s mood on the keys is like sweet pain and his voice will steal your soul.  Don’t move, let it happen.  
- Think Marvin

David Diao Su is still cooling down from the work producing his new record Precious Days 珍贵日 . David’s band is a tightly stitched together, gang of killer mavericks with Sean Clarey on guitar, Sean Dennis on bass  and Austin Gembora on drums. 
- Think Future Coltrane

Thompson Egbo is the man in charge of the room, no mistaken. Egbo brings with him songs from his new record - A New Standard and with it; a disclaimer warning; if you are not prepared to be hypnotized, do not listen. 
- Think Monk

Jenna Glatt is an “exceptionally gifted” singing sensation with an impressive track record. Berklee (Boston) Grad. Jenna has appeared at many international music festivals, radio and television programs and has been collaborating with selected producers and songwriters from New York City to Nashville.  Experience her silky, soulful mood up close & personal, only at POETRY.
- Think Lisa Stansfield

Anna Cyzon is like the elusive black panther, spending her summer nights working the hidden late -night European club scene. Anna then slips back home quietly into the icy foggy Toronto nights, working the boutique hotels and speak-easy red light spaces.
Anna's mood is dark and her voice is forbidden.  Poetry is the perfect place for her.
- Think Miles Davis's Betty Davis
