LEONARD COHEN Tribute "Under the Influence"

Postby Nat-the-hammer » Mon May 24, 2010 8:31 pm

I'm organising a Leonard Cohen tribute night on 21st June at the Booglaloo pub in Highgate North London. It's a showcase for some exciting up and coming singer songwriters who will all cover a leonard Cohen classic as well as play two of their own songs.

Here's the link to the facebook event...

Come on down and spread the word. It promises to be a great night with some brilliant new artists performing in an intimate and comfortable setting.

There's now way I can attend, but I LOVE the apt title of your event. Please get back with us and let us know how it went, with any YouTube links of footage from it. It sounds like it's going to be a great night for everyone there, musicians and audience both.

I think my son Ian is going so I will report his comments in due course as to the standard of music and more importantly the respect shown to the covering of Leonards songs

Oh, good, Yorkshire Lad. I saw that you were going to make him aware of it, so hopefully he will be able to get there. It sounds like it's going to be a really good night and it'd be great to hear back on the aspects you've mentioned, especially the respect. Something about nat's description gives me the impression that they will be respectful 8) . Thanks.

I too would have loved to have seen this; artists can showcase their talent and pay hommage to Leonard.

A bit far for me. :razz:

Hello everyone,

Thanks very much for all your interest and support.
I'm hoping it will be a great night and we've added some exciting new artists to the bill.

The facebook event page has changed and is now here: http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=120491757987031

I've also set up a myspace page where i'm gradually posting songs by the artists playing so you can get a taste of their original material:

Thanks again.

I'll let you know how it goes.

That's wonderful, Nat, that we'll be able to watch or at least listen to some of them ourselves, through your links. Thanks so much.
