The response in our hometown of Victoria, BC has been amazing, so much so that we're moving the event to a larger venue!  The Dave Dunnet Community Theatre in Oak Bay High School, at 2121 Cadboro Bay Rd.  If you purchased a physical ticket for the show at Oak Bay United Church, your ticket will get you into the new venue.  Same date, same time, doors will open at 7pm instead of 7:30pm, show at 8pm. 
IF YOU PURCHASED A "WAITLIST" TICKET from our website, YOU NOW HAVE A TICKET FOR THE SHOW. 

Like so many others all over the world, we are deeply moved by the news of Cohen's passing.  We decided the best way to honour our hero was to play a series of concerts to celebrate his work, to bring people together, and to sing our way through the grieving.  We're honoured to have some incredibly talented guests for our upcoming show in Victoria.  Join us for what will be a very special night.
