Bread and Roses at Joe’s Cafe.

October 6th, 6-10pm

6014 Kingsbury Ave, St. Louis, MO 63112.

Bread & Roses Missouri uses an arts lens to examine social and economic justice issues in all of our programming.  We believe that cultural and creative expression are a means to affecting deep and lasting social change.

Our mission is to organize and participate in arts and humanities events, exhibits, and workshops for and about workers and their families that address the root causes of poverty and inequality, and that move us toward an economic base that benefits the entire community.    


The Guppies are a collective of four St Louis singer-songwriters. Folk, country blues, gypsy jazz, rags, shuffles and waltzes, finger pickin’ and washboarding- this quartet has a multitude of expressive stylings.

Déja began playing music at the young age of eleven. Déja, now twenty-two, has been playing in the St. Charles and St. Louis area for five years. He is currently working on his first album. Déja hopes you enjoy his music- singer-songwriter acoustic soul- as well as your time at the Bread and Roses event.

Ellen Hilton Cook has been described as “Andrew Lloyd Webber meets The Dresden Dolls meets Frank Zappa.” Piano rock influenced by punk rock, jazz, poetry, and cabaret- a high energy piano/drums duo.  

Soulard​ ​Blues​ ​Band-​ ​After 25 years and many incarnations, and with nine straight wins in the “Best Blues Band” category in a popular local poll, these guys still tears up it up one show at a time, and are arguably the hardest working band in St Louis.
