On July 1, JEFF BREITHAUPT’s NEW YORK ROCKS THE GREAT CANADIAN SONGBOOK Canada Day Celebration at Joe’s Pub returns!
Once again produced and emcee’d by Jeff and featuring an all-star line-up of singers backed by DON BREITHAUPT and the WORKIN’ FOR THE WEEKEND HOOSE BAND, this 17-year tradition will leave no Canadian hit song safe from (northern) exposure. Join a sparkling line-up of singers as they lay down unforgettable versions of all your favo(u)rite anthems from the land of the Justins, long Weeknds, Barenaked Ladies, and Men Without Hats. From Cohen to Cockburn, Joni to Gino, Lightfoot to Lighthouse, Nelly to Neil, Gosling to Reynolds (okay not them), and beyond, you never know whose songs you’ll hear. Finding yourself anywhere else in New York City on this Canadian night-of-nights would be tragically un-hip, so knit yourself a new toque, save room for the poutine, put on your skate guards (it’s indoors, eh?), and come wish our neighbor(u)rs to the north a Happy 152nd birthday with a bracing brew of Canada’s Greatest Hits. Think you know the Great Canadian Songbook? You Ain’t [Heard] Nothin’ Yet.
Full line-up to be announced soon!
