Bitter&Broke is a Canadian band and DJ/producer trio based in Toronto, Ontario.

With a locally renowned reputation for creating smooth instrumentals, crispy drums, and velvet vocals, band members and multi-instrumentalists Yoshi, Aaron, and Jay create eclectic and experimental sounds for late nights at home, and fun mornings out!

When they are not producing beats and performing alongside Toronto’s emerging independent hip-hop and R&B artists, Bitter&Broke run a number of live-jams, DJ parties, open mics, cyphers, and concerts built for the community and cultures that inspire them everyday.

Catch them performing from 5-7 pm at St. Clements-Yonge Parkette!
