A little history...

Speakeasy started as a monthly open mike jam session in June 1999 at the Green Room. The house band soon developed an intimate relationship with the regular performers, which led to the generation of new material every month. Speakeasy late night events have expanded to a variety of Manchester venues, always drawing a culturally diverse audience from Moss Side, Rusholme, Hulme and other central Manchester areas. We have created a platform for participation and self- expression: by breaking down barriers to performance to create an 'art form open to everyone'.



Young Identity


Wordsmith Awards

As seen on HBO Def Poetry Jam 


Speakeasy is proud to present Emmy Award-nominated LIZA GARZA, poet, vocalist and songwriter. Infusing the cultural soul of Mexican folk tunes in modern ballads with the intricacy of Hip Hop rhyme schemes, she bridges the ancestral with the modern. With performances that include The Lincoln Center, The Apollo, the National Association of Latino Arts & Culture, HBO Def Poetry Jam and numerous stages world wide, diverse people are finding a home in her voice.

Tonight's event also features a performance by the Wordsmith 2013 Slam Winners.
