On July 1, JEFF BREITHAUPT’s NEW YORK ROCKS THE GREAT CANADIAN SONGBOOK Canada Day Celebration at Joe’s Pub returns!
Produced and emcee’d by Jeff Breithaupt and featuring an all-star line-up backed by DON BREITHAUPT and the WORKIN’ FOR THE WEEKEND HOOSE BAND, this 17-year tradition will dig into the full range of Canadian popular songwriting. Join a sparkling line-up of performers – MARISSA MULDER, OPHIRA EISENBERG, J’SUN, GREG NAUGHTON, JANIS SIEGEL, ALYSON PALMER, SHANNON CONLEY, JEREMY KUSHNIER, SHELLEY McPHERSON, MICHAEL HALLING, LIBYA PUGH, VICTORIA LECTA CAVE, AMY CERVINI, LA TANYA HALL, THE BREITHAUPT BROTHERS, BEN ZWERIN, PETE McCANN, MARK McLEAN, DAN LEVINE, DAVE PIETRO, FRANK DAVID GREENE, and special guest PAT KIERNAN .
The artists lay down unforgettable versions of all your favo(u)rite anthems from the land of Barenaked Ladies and Men Without Hats, the two Justins, and long Weeknds. 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.
There are two shows at 7:00 and 9:30.
