‘Hejira’ is a 7-piece band set up to celebrate and honour the masterpiece works of Joni Mitchell, mostly from the late ‘70s. Having released the albums ‘The Hissing of Summer Lawns’, ‘Hejira’, ‘Don Juan’s Reckless Daughter’ and ‘Mingus’ (regarded as her ‘jazz period’), Joni then toured briefly with a band formed from the crème de la crème of contemporaneous jazz musicians (Metheny, Mays, Brecker, Pastorius and Alias). The tour was recorded, producing the outstanding live album, ‘Shadows And Light’; it is from this album that the band Hejira is drawing the body of its repertoire. Comprising highly experienced jazz musicians, this band is fronted by the brilliant Hattie Whitehead who not only has in her own way - assimilated the poise, power and beauty of Joni’s vocals, but also plays guitar with Joni’s stylistic mannerisms.

Joni Adno and Friends pay tribute to Joni Mitchell. Joni has been singing since she can remember. Encouraged by her drummer/vocalist father, she began singing duets with her imaginary friend Ricky Nelson on the front porch when she was 4, then graduated to the Presbyterian Choir, junior and senior high chorus. Piano lessons turned into a degree from the University of North Florida in Music Education with a Piano Minor. She sang for friends, weddings, and private affairs until 2005 when her dream of being in a real band came true and she joined up with the Sarasota band Big Night Out, playing keyboards and singing latin, pop, and Motown favorites.

The Joni Project is comprised of saxophone, bass, percussion, keyboards, guitar and vocals, bringing to life the best of Joni Mitchell’s tunes, from her Song to a Seagull album to Hejira, in her most prolific period from 1960’s to 1978. Come out and enjoy some of your favorite Joni tunes. More information here

Celebrating 12 years of "Both Sides Now: The Music of Joni Mitchell," Hannah Reimann's critically acclaimed show has presented over 40 songs from seven albums of the iconic Mitchell's discography since 2012. Her All-Star Band performs authentic versions in their original keys and arrangements from Court and Spark, , Blue, Ladies of the Canyon, Clouds, For the Roses and much more. Reimann is Music Grantee of the Cafe Royal Cultural Foundation and will be performing a few songs featured on her new EP, "Take Me To The Sun," at this show, with thanks to the Foundation for help with the recording. Most of the show will be devoted to hits by Joni including "A Case of You," "Court and Spark," full-band versions of "Rainy Night House" and "Woodstock" from the album, Miles of Aisles, River, and, of course, "Both Sides Now." She began her retrospective of Mitchell's music to heal her broken heart while her dad was dying from dementia and while she was directing the related documentary film, "My Father's House, A Journey of Love and Memory" More information here

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

Written and performed by Melbourne singer/song writer, Lauren Elizabeth, and her 6-piece band, 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. The show has been performed throughout Australia for the past 7 years to sold-out audiences, and it’s very exciting to be performing again at MEMO Music Hall. More information here

Unfortunately, the Canadian pop icon JONI MITCHELL is far too little known in this country despite being listed by the legendary “Rolling Stone” magazine at number 9 of the 100 best singer/songwriters of all time. We are more familiar with her top hits “This Flight Tonight”, “Big Yellow Taxi”, “Woodstock”, “My Secret Place” and “Both Sides Now”, which are often not associated with her.

With her four excellent musicians, the Stuttgart singer Birgitta Menzer presents all of the artist's favorite songs, and the listener can experience in a magnificent way what it means when Joni Mitchell says about herself:

“I'm painting with words and music”. More information here
