“Jazz Poetry Café is the epitome of elegance personified through rich culture in a inspirational atmosphere! It’s a place where you can safely let go of all of your inhibitions and enjoy yourself! It’s a platform for up and coming artists and entrepreneurs to showcase their gifts and talents to a community that was otherwise unaware! It’s the meeting of all nations under one roof… In a natural setting sharing a supernatural experience! So come out and enjoy the soulful ambience with the sounds of a LIVE BAND providing Smooth Jazz, Neo Soul, Great Singing, Profound Poetry, and Delicious Food!”

– Carisa Brown / CEO & Founder

 Jazz Poetry Café is a musical performance and spoken word event currently held on First Fridays in Jacksonville, Florida. We are passionate about music and spoken word poetry as genres of entertainment, a tool to increase the level of literacy in society, a means of livelihood for the artists and a medium of communication among people NOT ONLY in Jacksonville, but across the globe! Our dream is to promote artists so we can create a means of employment where they can earn a living from their amazing performances and written materials…

To transition them from where they are… To where they want to be!
