Celebrate Canada Day & the end of Joe’s Pub as we know it
As previously mentioned, Joe’s Pub is closing for renovations. Tonight, 7/1, is the final night of the club as we know it now, and they’ll be hosting Canada Day bashes “featuring the Great Canadian Songbook” at both 6:30 and 9:00 pm…
produced and emcee’d by Jeff Breithaupt and featuring a stellar international line-up, including Tyley Ross (East Village Opera Company, The Who’s Tommy), Greg Naughton (The Sweet Remains), singer-songwriters Jamie Leonhart, Joe Hurley, Anthony da Costa, and Kate Schutt, cabaret spitfire Shelley McPherson, Tony Salvatore (BETTY, Pleasuredog), Shannon Connolly (Lez Zeppelin), and chanteuses Lezlie Harrison, Melissa Stylianou, and Victoria Cave (Brooklyn Rundfunk Orkestrata, Cabaret, Steely Dan), all backed by the all-star “Workin’ for the Weekend House Band” led by Music Director Peter Kiesewalter (Brooklyn Roadfunk Orkestrata, East Village Opera Company). Join the evening’s sparkling cast as they lay down unforgettable versions of all your favorite Canuck anthems. From Cohen to Cockburn, Joni to Gino, Lightfoot to Lighthouse, Rufus to Raffi, Burton to Bryan, Nelly to Neil, you never know whose songs you might hear. Think you know The Great Canadian Songbook? You Ain’t [Heard] Nothin’ Yet.
The Joe’s Pub shows are also the only place we could find that was actually celebrating Canada Day this year. There is a show in Prospect Park but it’s not about Canada (it’s reggae band Steel Pulse).
