Re: Sept 21st Melbourne gathering

Although there were not many of us present at this gathering last night, we had an enjoyable and meaningful time together nevertheless. :D We started out at The Duke of Wellington hotel where we had a satisfying reasonably priced meal, during the course of which we duly acknowledged Leonard with a t...

Re: Sept 21st Melbourne gathering

There are still only four of us able and committed to meeting up in Melbourne on the evening of September 21st... however, it's not too late, if there are any other takers within striking distance of Melbourne. ;-) Anyway, after consultations, I've now made a reservation at the Duke of Wellington Ho...

Re: Sept 21st Melbourne gathering

Hi again, time flies, so it's time to provide an update on our proposed gathering. ;-) Unfortunately, so far only one other Melburnian had indicated they will be free to participate in this restaurant meet-up on the 21st September. :neutral: Nevertheless, I've started looking at restaurants, though ...

Re: Mikelangelo’s ‘Cave, Waits & Cohen’ UK shows

Incidentally, I saw Mikelangelo perform a ‘By Request’ show at one of my local venues last Sunday night and he told me there were more requests for his Cohen covers than for any other artist or song (including his own). 8) On this occasion he performed 'Tower of Song’, ‘Famous Blue Raincoat’ and ‘Da...

Hi there, Melbourne based Cohenites, just to let you know Alan M informed me some while ago that he and his wife Karin will be in Melbourne for some days from September 21st and we have therefore now decided to meet up on that day, it of course being the date of Leonard’s birthday anniversary. 8) We...

I have many Cohen items (such as books, DVD docos) that may be of interest to you. I will PM you my ...

Re: Hydra: Songs and Tales of Bohemia

There was a packed house for tonight’s concert and the show was even more enjoyable than the previous ones, as it has been developed and extended, with more biographical LC and historic Hydra audio-visual footage interspersed between the songs. 8) The musicianship was of the usual high standard we h...
