Monday Night at the Rex!

6:30 – Jaqueline Teh

The moment has finally come! We are more than ready and thrilled to be playing for you this Monday evening at UofT Jazz’s favourite hanging spot. Get ready for a rich set of music, creatively curated by the members of the ensemble, something that Jackson believes will turn out to be “the hippest set he’s ever played at the Rex”.

Or in the great words of our own Harry Bartlett: “Fun.”

Come out, have drinks and a good time, and be sure to stay for the rest of the equally awesome ensembles!
