This is the first of two appearances I’ll be doing at Harbourfront next month – can’t wait!! Honey Jam‘s original host (and one of my personal hip hop SHE-roes), Michie Mee will be hosting this special event for Black History Month,  with yours truly holding it down on the 1s and 2s. This is part of Harbourfront’s amazing annual KUUMBA festivities. If you’re in Toronto, mark your calendars for Friday February 3rd!!


Honey Jam: Then & Now is a reunion concert and photo exhibit showcasing iconic images from the past 16 years of Honey Jam, the longest-running talent showcase in Canada.

An accompanying slide show will feature photos, press clippings, flyers, ticket stubs and other memorabilia as well as some video highlights from 1995 to present.
