Kiki Ebsen’s Joni Mitchell Project returns to The E Spot Lounge at Vitello’s Upstairs in Studio City on their 2017 summer tour. After two sold-out concerts at this venue in tribute to their favorite singer-songwriter, Kiki Ebsen and her band, including Grant Geissman, Terry Wollman, Steven Lawrence, and Matt Starr return in concert and offer patrons the opportunity to enjoy an evening of music by the iconic singer/songwriter.

In 1968, Kiki Ebsen discovered the magic of Joni Mitchell on “Song to a Seagull.” With each subsequent release including “Clouds,” “Ladies of the Canyon,” and onto “Blue,” Kiki discovered the magic of Mitchell’s brilliant lyrics, amazing arrangements, and solid song stylings, each new album giving greater insight into Joni’s artistry. Ebsen created The Joni Mitchell Project” as an opportunity for Joni-inspired professional musicians to join her in declaring “our respect, regard, and unending appreciation for her gifts.” Concert repertoire includes selections from nine of Mitchell’s albums, from “Song to a Seagull” through “Wild Things Run Fast” (1968–1976).

Location: E-Spot Lounge, Vitello’s Restaurant, 4349 Tujunga Ave., Studio City, CA 91604

In what will be an unforgettable celebration of her music rather than a typical “tribute” show, ‘This is Joni’ offers something for everyone, not just for solid fans of Joni Mitchell’s extensive musical history.

Written and performed by Melbourne singer/song writer, Lauren Elizabeth, the audience will be taken through an exploration of memorable songs from the legendary singer/songwriter, who defined a generation through her music. It is impossible to categorize Joni’s sound, as she explored so many genres, and this show pays homage to them all.

Performing her many hits such as ‘Help Me’, ‘Big Yellow Taxi’, ‘Blue’ and ‘Free Man In Paris’, plus a collection of songs spanning Joni’s 40-odd year career, Lauren will perform with her outstanding 6 piece band, comprising some of Melbourne’s finest musicians and special guest vocalists.

The show will also explore the artist and painter that is Joni Mitchell and the work she has produced, dating back to the early 195o’s, right up to the present day.

‘This is Joni’ intends to tour Australia throughout 2017, followed by an extensive tour of Europe in 2018.

Lauren Elizabeth - Lead vocals
Sam Keevers - Piano
Nathan Slater - Guitars/vocals

Gina Foster, who is probably best known for her work with the iconic group “Swing Out Sister”, is a truly gifted and impressive singer. Perhaps most familiar to those at the Club for her shows here with her friend Beverley Skeete (Rhythm Kings), Gina is renowned as one of the most soulful session vocalists around and has worked prolifically in jazz, soul, groove, pop and dance music with high profile artists including Eric Clapton, Sinead O’Connor and many more. Tonight Gina will be returning to the 606 with her band for an encore performance of “Joni’s Soul”, her acclaimed programme celebrating the life and music of iconic singer/songwriter Joni Mitchell. As she says "It's not easy to pick a set-list from such a prolific artist, with so many great songs to choose from. But so far our interpretations, with emphasis on the heart and soul, have been going down a storm! From “Hejira” to “Both Sides Now”, “Hissing of Summer Lawns”, “Coyote”, “Carey” and “Edith and the Kingpin”, it's a pleasure to hear these great songs played live and a special pleasure to perform them." And she has put together a terrific band to help accomplish that task, with Graham Harvey on piano and keyboards, Ronnie Johnson along with son Patrick Johnson on guitars, Laurence Cottle on bass and Ian Thomas on drums. This promises to be a very special night indeed. Booking recommended.

The Firehall Arts Centre is proud to produce and present the world premiere of Circle Game: Reimagining the Music of Joni Mitchell from Saturday, April 29 to Saturday, May 20, 2017.

The enduring music of Canadian icon and renowned singer-songwriter Joni Mitchell is reimagined in this energetic musical experience. Conceived and directed by two of Vancouver's own theatrical powerhouses, AnDrew Cohen and Anna Kuman, Circle Game features six quadruple-threat talents including Erik Gow (Pride and Prejudice), Scott Perrie (Godspell), Adriana Ravalli (Rock of Ages), Kimmy Choi Rowland (Avenue Q), Sara Vickruck (Love Bomb), and David Z. Cohen (Heathers: The Musical). Together, they play eighteen instruments, creating modern variations on themes by Joni Mitchell.

One of the most influential female recording artists of the late 20th century, Joni Mitchell has often reflected on social and environmental ideals through her music. Millennial culture celebrates the repurposed and the upcycleD. Mitchell's music stands the test of time and once again she is the voice of a generation. The heartbreak of a failed love affair in "River", the fear of imminent ecological disaster in "Big Yellow Taxi", and the promise of a generation gathering to 'get back to the garden' in "Woodstock" are topics that resound as heavily today as they did fifty years ago.

Donna Spencer, Artistic Producer at the Firehall Arts Centre states, "As I look back on the powerful impact Joni Mitchell's songs had on the Baby Boomer generation, I am excited the Firehall will premiere this reimagining of her music in this production conceived and created by Millennials AnDrew Cohen and Anna Kuman. Issues that Mitchell sang about in the '60s and '70s are unfortunately still relevant today. Audiences will not only be reminded of this, but given the opportunity to enjoy her beautiful poetic lyrics and masterful melodies."

After releasing two ambitious studio albums and relentlessly touring for the last three years, Providence, RI art-pop power trio Arc Iris is ready to unveil its next project to the world: a complete re-imagination of Joni Mitchell's seminal album Blue. Whereas acoustic guitars and minimal arrangements are some of the hallmarks on Mitchell's original recording, Arc Iris' interpretation of the music is bold and modern. The band mixes the sounds of symphonic analogue synths, heavy drum beats, and sampling, while the iconic songs themselves are never swallowed up by the tide of these inventive arrangements.
