The Songbook Series

The Songbook Series is part of After Hours at Theatre Passe Muraille, a late-night cabaret series. Each event celebrates the work of an artist, group, era or style that had a significant impact on our collective musical history. We invite a variety of musicians and artists from all disciplines to re-imagine that music in their own way. Re-imagination is key—we are NOT looking for a simple acoustic cover. In past seasons, we featured the music of The Rolling Stones, The Barenaked Ladies, the songs of Disney, Madonna, Elton John, The Beach Boys, Michael Jackson, Musical Couples, the music of 1994. Hear your favourite tunes like you’ve never heard them before!

 

The Songbook Series is led by The Family Band, who facilitate and host each evening, but the series celebrates the diversity of musicians and music that is present in our city. In other words, it’s much more than a coffeehouse. Each guest artist will receive a couple of free drinks from the bar, plus many opportunities for self-promotion. Guests are able to sell CDs/merch at our bar, as well as verbally promote upcoming performances onstage. We will also distribute any flyers or other promotional material to all audience members.

 

 

2017.18 Season Dates:

Oct 13, 2017 & Feb 9, 2018
