Alex: Sensational, a revelation that's the coming together of nine supremely talented musicians to recreate the magical sounds that emanated from Laurel Canyon, just a few kilometers from Hollywood in the and speak of folk rock and country rock that had such a profound influence. I refer to the songs of Joni Mitchell, Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young. The Beach Boys, carol King, the Birds, the Doors, the Mummies and the Puppies and others. The first act kicks off with a rich and redolent rendition of The Mummies and the Puppets hit California Dreamer. What follows is for what it's worth by Buffalo Springfield the Birds mr. Tambourine man canned heat going up the country and everybody's talking. By Harry Nielsen The pitch perfect vocalizations and melodic harmonies delight and excite throughout the one-and-a-half-hour concert. Songs from the Canyon showcases individual and collective brilliance on multiple instruments as well as vocals. Members of the Nonett give us anecdotes about the artists that came, saw and conquered Laurel Canyon. Carol King So Far Away and Home Again are on the slate before Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young's our house Joni Mitchell's, California and then, God only knows, off the Beach Boys Pet Sounds album. There's sheer joy in watching and savoring the glorious palette. After interval, the Musos tackle the doors. People are strange after the gold rush from Neil Young and Joni Mitchell's. Both sides now and river. Crosby, Stills, Nash get another look in with Sweet Judy Blue Eyes before the band members are introduced one by one to rapturous applause. Among them are, uh, hannah cameron, ivy and mabel windridge warns known as charm of Finches and Brie Hartley alongside Husky Wenda, dan kelly, stephen grady, Dan Chalice and ryan Monroe. Their encore again turns to Crosby, Stills and Nash, with helplessly Hoping finishing on a high with Turn Turn from the Birds. Rarely have I seen such an atmosphere of collective bonhomie and goodwill amongst band members and patrons alike. The warmth in the room is all encompassing and embracing the vibe is electrifying. Directed by Evie Gawenda with musical direction from Husky Gawenda and Dan Kelly, songs from the Canyon is a show of sheer artistry and virtuosity. It richly deserves a wide audience.
