THE JUNE 2017 PROGRAM

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

JUNE is full of dark intrigue with Chelsey Bennett's encore performance at Poetry.  Whether its the classics, scatting hooks, or a Motown cover, Chelsey brings her character, energy and soul into her music. She combines her jazz training with her love for traditional and modern r&b to create a high energy, raw neo-soul performance. She recently released her first original EP entitled, 'No End'
Think Minnie Riperton.

 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

Neal Brathwaite Mr Cool', the most in demand Saxophone player in Toronto, steps into the Poetry* space on April 20th, for the first of a series of limited performances we call MOOD.   
- Think Coltrane

Brooke Blackburn's AFTRDARK' Wednesday Blues series at Poetry* is dark and uneasy, Brooke doesn't fake the blues, he's real and didn't learn his game from private school, but from his paternal lineage, that goes directly back to the American-Canadian underground railroad history.  
Brooke's band The Bentley Collective takes you back to the smell and silhouettes of a
Mississippi Delta Jook Joint. 
- Think Howlin Wolfe

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

THE POETRY SUMMER DJ SERIES BEGINS SUNDAY MAY 28.
JUNE 11/18/25

POWERED BY DJ DAVIDSON ELIE OF CHILLAXE MUSIC
The CHILL AXE sound is one of chill and thrill beats, breaks, grooves and dubs. A moody flow of thoughtful music sets fusing electronica with R&B, Hip Hop, Dub Reggae, 80 Synth/Rock, New Age and New Deep House. The name refers to Chill as in "chill out music". Axe is as in cutting, edgy, sharp and aggressive at times. The logo shows the strong Axe as the main focus with a "Chilled" peaceful dove on front and stars under, all within a circle.
