Jazz Verse Jukebox is 10!

This eclectic jazz and poetry night celebrates its 10th birthday this month at Hoxton Hall. Join us for this JVJ special which features a stunning line-up of wordsmiths and singers. Get ready to be taken on a poetry and musical journey into Africa, India to Europe and back again.

Described as ‘the perfect jazz poetry party’ by Michael Horovitz, the Jazz Verse Jukebox continues the age-old tradition of intertwining jazz improvisation and spoken word. This promises to be a thrilling, diverse night from some of the freshest exponents on the scene.

Since its inception in 2009, the Jazz Verse Jukebox, (the brainchild of broadcaster & vocalist Jumoké Fashola), has been featured at the Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club, the Royal Albert Hall (Elgar Room) & the Southbank Centre’s Poetry Parnassus.

Special Guests of the night include a stunning line-up of all wordsmiths and singers: writer, Goldsmith University lecturer and London teenage poetry SLAM Artistic Director Jacob Sam-La Rose, award-winning poet and Out-Spoken poetry night founder Anthony Anaxagorou, British-Indian poet and renowned performer Shruti Chauhan, internationally acclaimed spoken word artist Bella Cox, and music from established vocalist Tracey Jane Campbell. Plus a unique Jukebox Open Mic which is your chance to perform your poetry or sing with the band. Hosted by & with music from Jumoké Fashola.
