I have a feeling Roscoe Beck might be there.

Any official (or unofficial) updates on this?

The promo material for the concert advised "much more to be announced" and it is only a couple of weeks away now.

Sharon Robinson posted a photo on Facebook this morning, showing her plane departing LA for Montreal.

On Webb sisters' Facebook page I see a photo with them and Neil Larson in Montreal on October 28!

Maybe some sleuths out there can find evidence of other band members attending?

Why?
They are professional musicians.
They need to make a living.
That's what they were doing when they supported LC and did it so well!

Perhaps they are not as affluent or as free as others who can jet off to Montreal in November.

Or perhaps they just don't want to hear Leonard's songs being, in Vicomte's well chosen word, murdered!!!

Either way, attendance at this event is not compulsory.
Ring the bells that still can ring...

I dont want to hear Leonard’s songs « being murdered », of course … But first of all I do not want to hear anyone else singing Leonard's songs. Not anymore. Never again.

I am so disappointed. I thought the big surprise would be a new CD, a last CD with his words, his voice ...
