Poor Man's High excites audiences with their high energy performances and eclectic mix of original and cover songs that run the gamut from funk n’ reggae to rock n’ soul! They believe that everyone, whether rich, poor or somewhere in between, should have access to, and get naturally high on great music (like theirs)!


The 10-piece Toronto outfit draws on a variety of influences from the blues rock of the Rolling Stones and CCR to the early ska and roots reggae of Bob Marley and the Wailers. Their music is imbued with the funk and soul of greats like James Brown and Gil Scott-Heron, and reverberates with the stylistic coolness and pizazz of Elvis Presley, Miles Davis and The Heavy.  


Poor Man’s High looks forward to seeing you shake a leg on the dancefloor at their next show. Come ride with them on a Poor Man's High!
