Poor Man's High excites audiences with our high energy performances and eclectic mix of original and cover songs. We love all genres from funk n’ reggae to rock n’ soul! Whether rich, poor or somewhere in between, we believe that everyone should have access to, and get naturally high on great music (like ours)!
Our 10-piece Toronto-based outfit draws on a variety of influences from the funk of Sly and the Family Stone to the early ska and roots reggae of Bob Marley and the Wailers to the blues rock of the Rolling Stones and CCR. Our music is inspired by 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 our next show. Come ride with us on a Poor Man's High!
