Schmoozy features Canadian born R&B and Soul artist Jeff Hendrick. Deeply rooted in the R&B and Soul influences of artists like Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Prince, and Michael Jackson, Hendrick’s smooth vocal offerings often conjure up images of Philly soul rather than the Canadian prairies. His mature and dynamic stage presence has captured fans both domestically and internationally, and his other talents as a saxophonist and keyboard player have truly made him a unique musical entity.

Latitude 53 is a not-for-profit, charitable artist-run centre that creates sites for the intersection of contemporary art and ideas by animating thought-provoking local, national and international visual art for over 44 years.

Tickets to Schmoozy include 3 drinks, and are in limited supply, for sale to Latitude 53 members only. Contact us to check on the status of your membership or get your members ticket password.
