Mike McGee knows how to throw a good party. Join in the latest edition of this epic bash, where Mike introduces us to talented and charming pals he has gathered along his journeys. The night begins with Sheri-D Wilson launching her new collection of poetry, ‘The Book of Sensations,’ and new CD ‘Dragon Rouge’ (co-produced with Steve Berlin). She’ll be joined by ‘The Orbiting Ouroboros’ (mega-musicians Barry Reynolds, Liam McDonald, Dave Bauer, Kenna Burima & Mark Williams).
Advance tickets can be purchased through Brown Paper Tickets here. mikemcgeeandsheri-d.bpt.me.
At the door is cash only. There is an ATM downstairs in the lounge.
Admission to this event is included in your Verses Festival Pass. Verses 2017 Early Bird Passes are available at Brown Paper Tickets here until April 10.
This event is a scent-reduced space. To assist in our goal of increasing accessibility to Verses events, please do your best to be aware of this and join us in reducing the impact of personal scented products (such as perfumes, scented oils, etc.) in our festival spaces.
Accessibility Info for Wise Hall:
You’ll note on arrival a set of railed stairs leading into the Hall. The wheelchair accessible entrance is around back. For certain events there will be someone posted at the door throughout the event and/or a bell system will be rigged up to ensure no one has to wait out there to be let in. If this has not been clarified by organizers already, please consider contacting them for details.
Once inside, you’ll find a spacious wood-floored hall, open concept, tables and chairs set up throughout. The stage (accessible only via stairs) is to your left, and the washrooms towards the back of the hall. The washrooms are currently gendered, but sometimes will be marked “gender neutral”. There are two sets of washrooms. The one to the left of the bar is currently marked “men” is on the same level and is now wheelchair accessible, with 2 urinals and one wheelchair access stall and one non-wheelchair access stall. The one to the right of the bar, currently marked “women”, is wheelchair accessible with no urinals and one additional stall.

2013: please note that a new, wheelchair accessible men’s bathroom has been created. The finishing touches are still being added, and the door has been adjusted to more easily fit wheelchair/scooter users, but overall the space is great.
