Pausa Art House will be the place to be on Saturday night, March 17th when the JFT Band will provide musical backdrops for WORDISM: Jam Sessionz.

It is usually held once a month at EM Tea Coffee Cup Café, on Buffalo East Side (80 Oakgrove Ave, Buffalo, NY 14208). WORDISM: Jam Sessionz is a special event where live music is provided as a backdrop to any poet who would like to perform.

Jumanne Pitts is the host of WORDISMJam Sessionz. The Saturday, March 17th event will also have a feature poet at the end of the evening: “The Proverbial One” Martin Sonchild.

WORDISM: Jam Sessionz events are usually packed and the energy is always amazing. Pausa Art House is located at 19 Wadsworth Street in Buffalo, New York.

The cost is $10.
