Jeff Robinson Trio

Every Sunday at the Lizard Lounge in Cambridge MA

“Whether they’re the fierce undercurrent of a poet’s musings or simply jammin’ on their own, the Jeff Robinson Trio exhibit power and confidence that flirts with perfection.” Award-winning poet, Patricia Smith

“The Lizard Lounge is the Blue Note of spoken word. Backed up by The Jeff Robinson Trio, my words felt held, or rather anointed, in the garb of jazz, which, of course, they were. I cannot wait until I can get back!” Award-winning poet, Taylor Mali

“The trio was a surprise hit of the last Boston Music Awards. And it’s the glue at the Lizard on Sunday, weaving sinuous riffs that meld uncannily with the rhythm of the poetry.” Steve Morse, The Boston Globe

“The Jeff Robinson Trio is one of the most innovative and revolutionary bands of today that mixes the old with a new kind of flavor.” Abiodun Oyewole, The Last Poets

“Magicians! Wizards! The Jeff Robinson Trio is the best poetry band in the country” Marc Smith, Creator of the Poetry Slam.

“The Jeff Robinson Trio’s progressive accompaniment provides atmosphere, to cadences and then marries them.” Award-winning poet, Taalam Acey

“There is nothing quite like performing poetry at the Lizard Lounge with the Jeff Robinson Trio improvising behind you. There’s a certain point—my shoulder blades begin to tingle—I feel wings of music being attached, and off—I—soar!” Award-winning poet, Richard Cambridge
